Hi, I'm Andy, and I work here, at Safari world.
We look after animals from all over the planet.
I've just been checking on the meerkats.
Mr Hammond, my boss, wants to count them later
to see just how many there are.
I've just got time for a quick cup of tea before the big count begins.
Hi, Jen! Everything OK?
I've just come up to see if you'd like a nice cup of tea.
No time for a tea break, Andy. We've got a major problem.
-What's the matter?
-The meerkats have escaped from the Savanna Dome!
They're running all around Safari world.
-Someone must have accidentally left their gate open.
Jen, I think it was me! Can you check the security cameras?
Oh, no! It WAS me! I accidentally left a door open!
Yes, I was rushing around, trying to get everything ready for Mr Hammond
when he comes to count the meerkats. BEEPING
Oh, dear! That's Mr Hammond calling now! Um...
-Hello, Mr Hammond.
I was about to start counting the meerkats.
The funny thing is, there don't seem to be any meerkats here to count.
-Yes, meerkats do live underground.
-That's right - they do.
Perhaps they're hiding in their burrows.
I'll see if I can find them. Here, little meerkat!
HE CLICKS TONGUE
What are we going to do?
We need to get the meerkats safely back to the Savanna Dome!
Yes, you're right. Hang on a minute!
In the wild, meerkats all make an alarm call to send
all the other meerkats home to safety.
Then that's what we need - a meerkat alarm call!
Time to go on a safari adventure!
Waistcoat - check!
Hat - check!
Backpack - check!
Coordinates set. Switching to flight mode.
Here we go! Woohoo-hoo-hoo!
Next stop - the Kalahari Desert.
Yes, I've made it all the way to Africa!
It's a bit like the Savanna Dome back at Safari World,
only much bigger. Any info on where to land, Jen?
I've located a group of meerkats nearby, Andy.
Good job. I'm going in.
Ah! This looks like an ideal place to land.
Well, according to Jen's calculations,
the meerkats should be around here somewhere.
I don't want to scare them, so gizmo? Size of a baby meerkat.
Hey! I'm down here!
Hang on! Is that a meerkat?
Oh! No. Meerkats don't have beaks.
That's a hornbill.
But that IS a meerkat! The colony must be around here somewhere.
If I spend enough time with them,
I'm bound to hear the alarm call I need.
In fact, I think there's another one over here.
Hang on a minute! That's not a meerkat - it's a scorpion!
Uh-oh! He's seen me!
There must be something in my backpack that can help me.
Er, stay there.
Maybe if I pretend to be like the scorpion, he'll leave me alone.
OK, Mr Scorpion! Look, I'm just like you. I've got pincers too!
I don't think this is going to distract him for very long.
Ho-ho! Meerkats to the rescue!
Saved by meerkats! Look at that!
I don't suppose one of you could make the alarm call to send
all the other meerkats back? Argh!
I think he likes me. Whoa!
He seems to be carrying me back to the meerkat colony. Great! Whoa!
Look - meerkats everywhere!
Would you mind making the alarm call, please?
I just need the noise to send all the meerkats home.
How about you?
You? You? You?
This is no good. Jen, I need you to send me a fact file on meerkats.
I need to find out which meerkat will make the alarm call.
Fact file coming through, Andy.
According to this,
it's the meerkats who are on lookout for danger who make the alarm call.
So I just need to find one of those.
Er, excuse me?
I was wondering if you could make a warning noise, please?
Maybe something like this. HE YAPS
Ooh! Ooh! Whoops! Sorry.
I'm not very good at sounding like a meerkat.
Oh, hang on. I think he's spotted something. Come on, let's go!
Oh! It's not easy keeping up with these meerkats,
not when you're this small.
Wait for me!
Oh! Good! We've stopped in front of a cobra.
We've stopped in front of a COBRA!
Huh? What are they all doing?
Oh, I see! The meerkats are teaming up to scare the cobra away.
Andy? Come in, Andy.
-Have you managed to record the meerkat call yet?
-No, not yet, Jen.
And I don't know what's going to make them sound the alarm.
I mean, they didn't even seem to be scared of a cobra!
Look - one's asleep...
..one's catching ants...
..and one's digging for grubs. Hey!
-You're breaking up, Andy.
Oh! You're covering me in dirt! You got a tasty grub, though.
Listen! It's a meerkat alarm call! Yes, finally!
It's warning the other meerkats that there's an eagle in the sky,
and the meerkats are listening to the call and running home.
That's exactly the sound I need! Right, now's my chance!
Gizmo, set to record. Oh, no! It's covered in dirt.
Gizmo, set to record! It's not working.
Right, that should do it. Gizmo, set to reco...
BEEPING Oh, great!
Now there's no meerkats TO record!
Hang on, though. The sentry's still on duty. Excuse me?
Would you mind making the alarm call again? I really need it!
Gizmo, set to record.
Oh! Don't worry, you lot. It's OK - the eagle's gone now!
You can come out.
-Come in, Andy. We really need that meerkat call.
-Don't worry, Jen.
I'm sending it through right now.
Got it! Thank you.
Right, back to normal size.
Great! See you later, meerkats!
Time to head back.
Jen, did the meerkat alarm call work?
-It worked brilliantly, Andy - look!
What about Mr Hammond?
-Oh! That's him calling now. Quickly!
SHE GASPS Oh!
Ah, meerkats! There you all are! Now I can finally count you!
One, two, three, four... Oh! Hello, you two! Look.
It seems the meerkats were hiding in their burrows after all.
-I wonder why?
-Perhaps something startled them? Maybe a bird of prey?
That's exactly the sort of thing that would happen to them
in the wild. Good suggestion, Andy!
Thanks, Mr Hammond.
See you next time!
