# Andy's baby animals! #

0:00:440:00:45

That's it, eat up.

0:00:480:00:49

Hello. I'm Andy.

0:00:500:00:52

And this is Carmen.

0:00:520:00:54

She's a baby tortoise.

0:00:540:00:56

She's only 14 months old,

0:00:560:00:58

but she has the perfect place to hide - in her shell.

0:00:580:01:03

Now, tortoises carry their homes on their backs.

0:01:030:01:06

When they feel like they need a bit of time to themselves,

0:01:060:01:10

they can crawl into their shells...

0:01:100:01:13

and relax.

0:01:130:01:14

Then when they feel safe,

0:01:150:01:17

they can poke their heads back out

0:01:170:01:20

and take a look around.

0:01:200:01:22

It's good for young animals to have a place to hide.

0:01:220:01:25

First we're off to Brazil.

0:01:270:01:29

These cuddly critters are coatis.

0:01:340:01:37

They're called ring-tailed coati because of that big stripy tail.

0:01:380:01:43

This family live in the forest here in Brazil.

0:01:460:01:49

But today Mum is taking her pups on a food-finding mission.

0:01:560:02:00

It's the first time the pups have been out of the forest

0:02:020:02:06

and it's all very new and exciting.

0:02:060:02:08

Don't forget to keep up with Mum, guys!

0:02:190:02:22

One way the cubs can make sure they don't get lost

0:02:270:02:30

is by following Mum's big stripy tail.

0:02:300:02:33

This lush, green meadow is a very good place to find food.

0:02:380:02:42

Coati love to munch on bugs and grubs

0:02:430:02:48

and it's easy to sniff them out with their big, long noses.

0:02:480:02:52

HE SNIFFS Found one.

0:02:520:02:54

Oh, no, that's my foot!

0:02:540:02:56

Their noses aren't as long as his, though. Phoah!

0:03:010:03:04

Lots of animals come to this meadow to feed.

0:03:060:03:09

But not all of them are friendly.

0:03:150:03:18

A savanna hawk has his greedy eye on the little coati pups.

0:03:190:03:24

Look out, everyone, it's an air raid!

0:03:240:03:27

The best place for the coati to hide is back in the forest.

0:03:280:03:33

When they're in the trees,

0:03:330:03:35

even a hawk-eyed bird of prey can't spot them.

0:03:350:03:38

Oh, are they going to get there?

0:03:400:03:42

Come on, guys.

0:03:420:03:44

Phew!

0:03:480:03:51

They've made it. Well done, everyone.

0:03:510:03:53

Oh, no. It looks like this little pup has been left behind

0:03:560:04:02

and that hungry hawk is still hanging around.

0:04:020:04:06

Luckily, he's so small, he can hide in the long grass.

0:04:090:04:13

But he needs to get back to the forest

0:04:150:04:17

if he wants to re-join the rest of his family.

0:04:170:04:20

On your marks, get set,

0:04:220:04:25

go!

0:04:250:04:26

Run, little one! Come on.

0:04:260:04:29

Keep your head down.

0:04:290:04:30

It's hard to run fast when you've got such little legs.

0:04:320:04:36

Almost there.

0:04:420:04:43

Ah!

0:04:470:04:49

Well done. He's made it.

0:04:490:04:52

Now, where's Mum got to?

0:04:520:04:55

Ah, there she is.

0:04:560:04:58

Oh, she's so pleased to see him and so are his brothers and sisters.

0:05:000:05:05

Now they're all back in the forest,

0:05:090:05:11

the little coati pups will have plenty of places to hide

0:05:110:05:15

if the hawk ever returns.

0:05:150:05:17

But for now, they can just get on with having fun.

# Andy's baby animals! #

0:05:290:05:32

Over we go to Canada this time.

0:05:320:05:34

When you live in a place with no trees at all,

0:05:360:05:39

hiding can be much harder.

0:05:390:05:41

Take this fluffy eider duckling, for example.

0:05:410:05:44

WOLF HOWLS

0:05:440:05:46

It needs to hide from this pack of hungry white wolves

0:05:460:05:49

who are out searching for a meal.

0:05:490:05:51

Luckily, Mum knows just what to do.

0:05:580:06:02

She's taking her babies to the lake.

0:06:050:06:08

The ducklings have never been there before,

0:06:080:06:11

but they take to swimming, well, like a duck to water.

0:06:110:06:15

Oh, dear. It looks like one of the wolves has spotted them.

0:06:160:06:20

You might think they're safe out there in the middle of the lake,

0:06:210:06:26

but wolves are great swimmers, too.

0:06:260:06:28

The little ducklings are too small to fly.

0:06:350:06:38

So it's up to Mum to save them.

0:06:420:06:44

And she does it by playing a game with the wolves.

0:06:460:06:49

It's called Catch Me If You Can.

0:06:520:06:55

Her ducklings watch her deal with the wolf.

0:06:560:06:59

All this splashing around makes the wolf follow her

0:07:010:07:05

while the babies duck - excuse the pun - out of sight.

0:07:050:07:10

Well done, Mum!

0:07:210:07:23

After all that running around, the wolf is puffed out.

0:07:230:07:28

Off it goes.

0:07:280:07:30

Time for a family reunion.

0:07:310:07:34

0:07:370:07:39

# Andy's baby animals! #

0:07:390:07:41

We're going to a special lake in Africa now.

0:07:410:07:44

Here in Lake Malawi,

0:07:460:07:48

there's another animal mum helping her babies to hide.

0:07:480:07:52

This fish is a real bigmouth.

0:07:560:07:59

Don't worry, I'm not being rude, that's her name - a big-mouth hap.

0:08:000:08:05

And she has a very strange way of hiding her babies

0:08:080:08:11

from other hungry fish who want to gobble them up.

0:08:110:08:16

She doesn't hide them in the rocks,

0:08:160:08:18

she hides them in her mouth!

0:08:180:08:21

Whenever she thinks there might be danger around, she opens wide...

0:08:220:08:27

..and they swim straight inside.

0:08:280:08:31

It looks like she's eating them,

0:08:330:08:36

but she's just keeping them safe until the danger has passed.

0:08:360:08:40

Once she's chased away all the hungry fish, she opens up,

0:08:420:08:47

the baby fish swim back out again.

0:08:470:08:50

Brilliant!

0:08:500:08:51

They'll swim in and out of her mouth until they're six weeks old

0:08:570:09:01

and big enough to look after themselves.

0:09:010:09:04

But until then, wherever they go,

0:09:060:09:09

these little fish will always have somewhere to hide.

0:09:090:09:13

I just hope Mum hasn't got bad breath. Ew!

0:09:160:09:20

A coati pup,

0:09:220:09:24

a duckling, and baby fish.

0:09:240:09:25

They've all got their favourite hiding places.

0:09:250:09:28

For Carmen here, it's her shell.

0:09:280:09:31

See you next time.

0:09:310:09:33

Where are you off to again? I don't know.

0:09:330:09:35

Young animals must learn to hide. Andy Day sees how coatis follow mum's tail to safety in the forest. Eider ducks keep a wolf busy while their ducklings find a safe spot. The big mouthed hap is strangest of all - the young fish hide in its mouth.
