HE WHISTLES

0:01:100:01:13

DOOR LOCKS

0:01:140:01:16

Hi, I'm Andy. I work here at the National Museum.

0:01:290:01:33

And I'm putting together a display

0:01:330:01:35

all about a supersized prehistoric animal.

0:01:350:01:38

You won't believe what I've got in this box! Come on, I'll show you.

0:01:380:01:42

-Hi, Jen.

-Oh, hello, Andy.

0:01:460:01:49

-Ooo, what's in the box?

-Something very special.

0:01:490:01:52

Sloth dung!

0:01:520:01:54

Dung?! You mean...poo?

0:01:540:01:57

-That's right.

-Urgh, Andy, that's disgusting.

0:01:570:02:00

Oh, it doesn't pong any more. Look, smell.

0:02:000:02:03

SHE SNIFFS See?

0:02:030:02:05

Mrs Pickles found it in a desert cave. It's over 10,000 years old.

0:02:050:02:09

A sloth, just like this...

0:02:090:02:12

-left it there.

-Fascinating(!)

0:02:120:02:15

But what would Mrs Pickles want with some dried-up old sloth poo?

0:02:150:02:18

You can find a lot out about an animal from its dung.

0:02:180:02:22

For example, this particular sloth was called Nothrotheriops

0:02:220:02:26

and its dung is full of seeds from desert plants.

0:02:260:02:29

-That's how we know what it liked to eat.

-That's very clever.

0:02:290:02:33

Oh, speaking of clever,

0:02:330:02:35

did you manage to make the computer model I asked for?

0:02:350:02:38

I certainly did. Let me show you.

0:02:380:02:40

There you go, one sloth.

0:02:460:02:48

Ah... Well, this is a fully sized sloth today.

0:02:500:02:54

-But the prehistoric sloths were much bigger than this.

-Really?

0:02:540:02:58

-How much bigger?

-Well, Nothrotheriops was...

0:02:580:03:01

bigger than me. About 2½ metres tall when standing up.

0:03:010:03:04

Some other species of sloth were even bigger than that.

0:03:040:03:07

In that case, I need to recalculate.

0:03:070:03:10

That's better, look at that! A fully sized Nothrotheriops.

0:03:160:03:19

Mrs Pickles will be very impressed.

0:03:190:03:21

THEY BOTH SNIFF

0:03:240:03:26

-Can you smell something?

-Yeah, it smells a little...

0:03:260:03:29

Pooey!

0:03:290:03:30

No! What's happened to the dung?!

0:03:320:03:34

Oh... What're we going to do?

0:03:360:03:37

Um, we could get some cow dung from a farm?

0:03:370:03:39

No, Mrs Pickles will know the difference.

0:03:390:03:42

It needs to be prehistoric Nothrotheriops dung!

0:03:420:03:44

Well, we definitely won't find that at the farm.

0:03:440:03:47

I'm afraid we're out of luck this time.

0:03:470:03:49

CLOCK CHIMES

0:03:510:03:54

Time!

0:03:570:03:59

Jen, that's it, you stay here, I'll go find us some Nothrotheriops dung!

0:03:590:04:03

Time to go on a Prehistoric Adventure!

0:04:030:04:06

But, Andy...

0:04:060:04:08

where are you going to find prehistoric poo?

0:04:080:04:12

Waistcoat, hat, backpack, gizmo.

0:04:190:04:23

To the time of Nothrotheriops!

0:04:340:04:37

CLOCK WHIRLS FRANTICALLY

0:04:370:04:39

HE YELLS EXCITEDLY

0:04:470:04:54

I've made it!

0:05:070:05:09

I've travelled back in time 15,000 years to the time of Nothrotheriops.

0:05:090:05:14

And I've landed in the perfect place to spot giant sloths!

0:05:140:05:18

Look at this view.

0:05:180:05:20

I might have to find another way down, though. It's a bit steep.

0:05:220:05:25

LOUD GROWL

0:05:250:05:27

HE GASPS

0:05:280:05:30

It's OK, kitty cat, come on now... HE LAUGHS NERVOUSLY

0:05:300:05:33

CAT ROARS

0:05:330:05:35

Oh...! HE YELLS

0:05:360:05:42

CAT ROARS IN DISTANCE

0:05:480:05:49

Well, that's one way of escaping a sabre-toothed cat!

0:05:490:05:54

They were the top predators of their time.

0:05:540:05:56

So I think it's a good idea if I stay as far away as possible

0:05:560:06:00

from their sharp, pointy teeth.

0:06:000:06:02

I think I'll look over here for a Nothrotheriops.

0:06:020:06:05

Uh-oh! It's that sabre-toothed cat again!

0:06:140:06:17

Oh, that is one persistent pussycat. Um...

0:06:180:06:22

I'll hide behind those rocks over there.

0:06:280:06:31

LOW RUMBLE

0:06:310:06:34

Sh, something's coming!

0:06:340:06:36

And it sounds much bigger than the sabre-toothed cat.

0:06:360:06:39

LOUD TRUMPETING

0:06:390:06:40

Whoa!

0:06:400:06:42

It's the Columbian mammoth! What a whopper!

0:06:420:06:47

Right, mammoths stayed safe from predators by living

0:06:470:06:52

together in herds.

0:06:520:06:53

Maybe I'll join them until the sabre-toothed cat goes away.

0:06:550:06:59

Excuse me! Can I have a lift?

0:06:590:07:01

I may be safe riding with the mammoths,

0:07:110:07:13

but I still need to find some Nothrotheriops poo.

0:07:130:07:16

Nope. No sign of the sabre-toothed cat.

0:07:230:07:26

But there's a desert over there,

0:07:280:07:30

the perfect place to find some dried-up dung!

0:07:300:07:34

Right, time to get off. LOUD TRUMPETING

0:07:340:07:39

Whoa!

0:07:420:07:44

Thanks a lot, mammoths!

0:07:440:07:46

Oh, wow, it's really hot here.

0:07:520:07:54

If I don't find that dung soon, I'M going to dry out.

0:07:540:07:57

Hang on a minute!

0:08:000:08:03

Yes! It's a Nothrotheriops!

0:08:050:08:08

Exactly like the sloths in our time, only a lot bigger.

0:08:080:08:12

Look, he's having something to eat.

0:08:120:08:14

That's good. Now all I need to do is follow him

0:08:140:08:17

and when he goes to the toilet, I'll have my dung!

0:08:170:08:20

Oh, no! It's that sabre-toothed cat again!

0:08:240:08:28

Doesn't he ever give up?

0:08:280:08:30

SLOTH ROARS

0:08:380:08:41

Be careful!

0:08:430:08:44

Yes!

0:08:470:08:49

SLOTH ROARS

0:08:490:08:52

These giant sloths may be slow,

0:08:520:08:54

but they're still quick enough to see off a sabre-toothed cat.

0:08:540:08:58

Thanks, Nothrotheriops!

0:08:580:09:00

I'm safe now.

0:09:000:09:02

Where's he off to? Hang on!

0:09:020:09:05

I think he's heading for that cave up there. Cave...

0:09:110:09:16

That's where Mrs Pickles said that she found the dung! Come on!

0:09:160:09:20

Oh, there is an almighty pong in here! It must be the dung!

0:09:400:09:44

LOUD GRUMBLING What was that?!

0:09:450:09:48

Oh, I hope it's not the sabre-toothed cat again!

0:09:480:09:51

LOUD SNORING

0:09:530:09:55

Oh, look! HE LAUGHS

0:09:550:09:58

It's a snoring sloth!

0:09:580:10:01

He must have tired himself out walking up here.

0:10:010:10:04

Right...

0:10:060:10:07

I need to find some... LOUD SQUELCH

0:10:070:10:10

Oh, yuck!

0:10:120:10:15

Whoa!

0:10:150:10:17

That is one big pile of plop! Eurgh!

0:10:170:10:21

Oh, hang on. This piece is dried out!

0:10:240:10:27

Yes! This will be perfect for the display.

0:10:290:10:33

CLOCK BELL CHIMES

0:10:330:10:36

The clock! Oh, no, I've got to get back to the museum,

0:10:380:10:42

Mrs Pickles will be arriving any moment!

0:10:420:10:45

I'll just pop this in my bag.

0:10:450:10:47

Oh... The clock is all the way up there!

0:10:550:10:57

How am I going to get there in time?

0:10:570:11:00

Think...

0:11:000:11:02

My backpack! It's always full of useful things.

0:11:020:11:05

Right, what have we got in here?

0:11:050:11:07

What's this? Hair curlers.

0:11:080:11:11

Oh, these aren't mine... HE LAUGHS NERVOUSLY

0:11:120:11:15

Pencil case!

0:11:170:11:19

Extra thick honey.

0:11:220:11:24

Extra thick honey.

0:11:260:11:28

Extra sticky honey...

0:11:280:11:30

Extra sticky honey!

0:11:310:11:33

That gives me an idea!

0:11:350:11:37

Oh...

0:11:390:11:42

I put the honey on the bottom of my shoes.

0:11:480:11:51

This stuff really is sticky!

0:11:520:11:55

Ah, right!

0:12:000:12:02

Oh, no! I'm stuck!

0:12:040:12:06

Right, let's try that again!

0:12:100:12:12

Time to head back!

0:12:120:12:15

CLOCK CHIMES Oh, Mrs Pickles!

0:12:240:12:27

-Jen!

-Andy, where have you been?

0:12:520:12:54

Why haven't you got your boots on?

0:12:540:12:56

No time to explain. Mrs Pickles is on her way.

0:12:570:13:01

-We need to get everything ready!

-OK.

0:13:010:13:03

Oh, I say!

0:13:150:13:16

What a marvellous display.

0:13:160:13:20

-Nothrotheriops, if I'm not mistaken.

-That's right, Mrs Pickles!

0:13:200:13:24

Oh, and you found a spot for the prehistoric poo I collected.

0:13:240:13:28

You'd never think it was over 10,000 years old.

0:13:280:13:32

It looks almost fresh!

0:13:320:13:34

You might want to put your boots back on, Andy.

0:13:400:13:43

I think your socks are a bit whiffy!

0:13:430:13:45

(Sh! See you next time!)

0:13:470:13:50

One, two, three, four!
