CAR HORN BEEPS

0:01:130:01:14

Hi, I'm Andy. I work here at Safari World.

0:01:270:01:31

It's the biggest safari park on the entire planet.

0:01:310:01:34

CAR HORN BEEPS

0:01:340:01:36

We've got lots of baby animals here too.

0:01:360:01:38

I'm just off to the control room to meet our newest arrival.

0:01:380:01:42

It's a rescued baby bird called a shoebill.

0:01:420:01:45

Jen's been looking after the shoebill chick

0:01:590:02:02

since it arrived this morning. I can't wait to meet it!

0:02:020:02:05

-CRACKLING

-Come in, Andy. Mr Hammond here.

0:02:050:02:08

-Please could you come to the Jungle Den?

-On my way.

0:02:080:02:11

Hm! I wonder what Mr Hammond wants?

0:02:110:02:13

Oh, well. I'll have to meet the chick later.

0:02:130:02:16

Oh! Where's Mr Hammond? Oh, well.

0:02:280:02:31

Gives me a good chance to look up shoebills

0:02:310:02:34

in my animal encyclopaedia.

0:02:340:02:37

Ah! Look at the size of their beaks! They're enormous!

0:02:370:02:43

And it says here that shoebills come from the swamps of Zambia in Africa.

0:02:430:02:48

Oh, and they like to stand really still so nothing can see them.

0:02:480:02:52

Like this.

0:02:520:02:53

Andy?

0:02:530:02:54

-Andy?

-Um, I'm here, Mr Hammond!

-Ah, jolly good!

0:02:570:03:01

-I was hoping you might have some shoe polish I can borrow.

-Oh, yes.

0:03:010:03:05

I think I've got some over here.

0:03:050:03:07

Got a very special guest arriving at the park today -

0:03:070:03:10

the President of Zambia!

0:03:100:03:12

-I thought I'd better dress up nice and smart.

-Oh, wow!

0:03:120:03:15

Funnily enough, Jen and I have a special guest from Zambia too -

0:03:150:03:19

-a shoebill chick.

-Ah! The big-billed bird of the African wetlands!

0:03:190:03:23

Maybe I could bring my guest to see your guest?

0:03:230:03:26

That's a good idea! I'm sorry. I can't seem to find the shoe polish,

0:03:260:03:30

but leave your shoes here and I'll make sure that they're nice

0:03:300:03:34

-and clean before the guest arrives.

-Thanks, Andy. That's very kind.

0:03:340:03:38

-Now, I must go and pick out a tie. I'll see you later.

-See you soon!

0:03:380:03:42

-BEEPING

-Come in, Andy.

-Hi, Jen!

0:03:420:03:44

Hey, you'll never guess who's coming to visit the shoebill chick today?

0:03:440:03:49

-Who?

-The President of Zambia!

-Oh, dear!

-What's the matter?

0:03:490:03:53

It's the shoebill chick - I don't think it's very happy.

0:03:530:03:57

It won't drink anything.

0:03:570:03:58

I've tried giving it water in a cup, a bowl, a saucer. Nothing's working.

0:03:580:04:03

Hm. Let me have a look in my encyclopaedia to find out how

0:04:030:04:07

shoebill chicks drink in the wild. No, there's nothing here.

0:04:070:04:11

Well, we can't have the President of Zambia seeing an unhappy chick!

0:04:110:04:16

Any ideas?

0:04:160:04:17

Well, I suppose you could go

0:04:170:04:19

-and see how they drink in the wild for yourself?

-You mean...?

0:04:190:04:24

Great idea, Jen!

0:04:240:04:26

But I told Mr Hammond that I'd clean his shoes for him!

0:04:260:04:29

Don't worry, Andy - I'll clean the shoes,

0:04:290:04:31

-you go and find out how shoebill chicks drink in the wild.

-Brilliant!

0:04:310:04:36

Time to go on a safari adventure!

0:04:360:04:38

Waistcoat - check!

0:04:460:04:48

Hat - check!

0:04:480:04:51

Backpack - check!

0:04:510:04:53

Gizmo...

0:04:530:04:54

..check!

0:04:560:04:58

Coordinates set. Switching to flight mode.

0:05:100:05:13

Engage boosters.

0:05:170:05:18

Ha-ha-ha-ha!

0:05:200:05:22

Next stop - the swamps of Zambia!

0:05:220:05:25

Ha-ha-ha-ha!

0:05:250:05:28

Yes! I've made it!

0:05:310:05:32

According to my scans, you're flying over a swamp.

0:05:330:05:36

Oh, well, that's great!

0:05:360:05:38

That's the perfect place to find a shoebill chick.

0:05:380:05:41

I don't think you should land the Safari Mobile in a swamp,

0:05:410:05:44

-though, Andy. It might sink.

-Yes, you're right, Jen. Good point.

0:05:440:05:48

-I'll find somewhere solid to land.

-OK. Good luck, Andy!

0:05:480:05:53

Wow! This looks like a good spot.

0:05:530:05:55

Right, to the swamp!

0:06:020:06:04

Must be this way. No. I must have landed too far away from the swamp.

0:06:070:06:12

Ah! Now, that looks promising! Come on, let's go!

0:06:150:06:18

Oh! Well, no water, which means no shoebill.

0:06:290:06:35

Someone lives here, though.

0:06:350:06:37

BARKS It's an African hunting dog!

0:06:370:06:39

I wonder if he knows where the swamp is? Maybe he goes there for a drink.

0:06:390:06:45

It says here that African hunting dogs live in packs.

0:06:460:06:49

So there must be some more around here somewhere.

0:06:490:06:53

Ah! Puppies!

0:06:550:06:57

I think I'll shrink down to their size

0:07:000:07:03

so I can fit right in with the pack.

0:07:030:07:05

Then I can follow them when they go looking for water.

0:07:050:07:08

To the size of a hunting dog puppy.

0:07:080:07:11

Ooh! Ooh! Ooh! Oh!

0:07:220:07:25

Careful, pups! Oh!

0:07:250:07:29

These pups certainly know how to have fun! Oh! They're off!

0:07:290:07:33

The dogs need water to cool down in this heat,

0:07:390:07:41

and where there's water, hopefully, there'll be shoebills.

0:07:410:07:45

Wait for me!

0:07:530:07:54

Yes! We found the swamp!

0:07:590:08:02

Ah!

0:08:110:08:12

Look at them! They're so happy in the water!

0:08:140:08:16

Thanks! Right, now it's time to find that shoebill nest.

0:08:200:08:27

See you later, pups!

0:08:270:08:28

Shoebills build nests in swamp grasses like this,

0:08:340:08:38

so I must be getting close.

0:08:380:08:40

BEEPING

0:08:400:08:41

Jen to Andy. I've just finished polishing Mr Hammond's shoes!

0:08:410:08:45

Nice one, Jen. How's our shoebill chick doing?

0:08:450:08:48

It still won't drink from its water bowl.

0:08:480:08:50

Well, keep trying, Jen,

0:08:500:08:52

and I'll find out how they drink in the wild as soon as I can.

0:08:520:08:55

OK, Andy.

0:08:550:08:56

There's got to be a nest around here somewhere.

0:09:000:09:04

Coming through! Don't mind me.

0:09:070:09:09

There! A shoebill chick!

0:09:160:09:19

SQUAWKS

0:09:190:09:21

Ah! I found a nest at last!

0:09:220:09:25

Wow, this is amazing!

0:09:250:09:27

Shoebills' beaks are huge.

0:09:280:09:30

They're like...well, like giant shoes.

0:09:300:09:34

Whoa!

0:09:340:09:35

Whoa! This one's not so steady on its feet.

0:09:350:09:40

It must only be a few days old. Uh-oh! The adult's coming.

0:09:400:09:45

Shoebills don't like to be disturbed,

0:09:450:09:47

especially when they have chicks.

0:09:470:09:50

I think I'd better keep my distance.

0:09:500:09:52

I think the adult's spotted me!

0:10:020:10:04

I know - I'll be a shoebill statue and, hopefully, it won't see me.

0:10:080:10:12

It's working!

0:10:190:10:20

It's drinking! But I still don't know how the chick drinks.

0:10:230:10:28

Oops! Spilt a bit!

0:10:310:10:33

Oops! Spilt a bit more!

0:10:450:10:47

Oh!

0:10:540:10:55

So THAT'S how a shoebill chick gets a drink - from its parent's beak!

0:10:550:11:01

I need to record this. Gizmo, set to record.

0:11:010:11:05

Great. Now to show Jen. Andy to Jen. Come in.

0:11:170:11:22

Reading you, Andy.

0:11:220:11:24

Jen, I've just seen an adult shoebill give a chick

0:11:240:11:27

-some water in the wild!

-Oh, that's great news!

0:11:270:11:31

Our chick is really thirsty now. So how does it do it?

0:11:310:11:34

Well, take a look at this recording.

0:11:340:11:36

The parents use their beaks to give the chicks a drink,

0:11:360:11:40

so you need to find something that looks like an adult

0:11:400:11:44

-shoebill's beak and then fill it with water.

-Right.

0:11:440:11:48

I'll have a look round for something that fits the bill...or the beak.

0:11:480:11:52

OK, Jen, and I'll get back to Safari World as quick as I can. Andy out.

0:11:520:11:57

Oops! Back to a normal size.

0:12:050:12:09

Yes!

0:12:130:12:14

See you later, pups!

0:12:180:12:19

Engage boosters.

0:12:230:12:24

BEEPING

0:12:590:13:00

Hi, Andy. Your plan worked brilliantly!

0:13:000:13:03

-The chick has just had a really long drink!

-That's great news, Jen!

0:13:030:13:07

What did you find to look like a shoebill's beak?

0:13:070:13:10

-Wait there - I'll show you.

-Andy?

0:13:100:13:13

-Found it! Hello, Mr Hammond.

-Andy, thank goodness!

0:13:150:13:19

The President of Zambia will be here at any moment! I need my shoes back.

0:13:190:13:23

-Oh. Um...

-Here you go, Andy.

0:13:230:13:26

This is what I used to give the shoebill chick a drink.

0:13:260:13:29

-Oh, hello, Mr Hammond!

-Is that my shoe?

-Er, yes.

0:13:290:13:35

Andy asked me to, um... Er...

0:13:350:13:37

..clean them for you.

0:13:400:13:41

Splendid! You two make a great team! I'll pop up and grab them now.

0:13:450:13:50

See you next time!

0:13:540:13:55

When a newly orphaned shoebill chick arrives at Safari World, Andy and Jen notice it's having trouble drinking water. Andy takes to the skies in his safari-mobile, jetting off to the swamps of Zambia, in Southern Africa, to discover how shoebill chicks drink water. Along the way, he meets a pack of African hunting dogs, complete with adorable puppies.
