# Andy's safari adventures! #

0:00:550:00:59

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

0:01:270:01:31

We look after animals of all shapes and sizes.

0:01:310:01:34

CAR HORN BEEPS It's Mr Hammond's birthday today,

0:01:340:01:37

and Jen said she has a very special birthday surprise for him.

0:01:370:01:41

I wonder what it could be.

0:01:410:01:43

Oops!

0:01:570:01:59

I almost forgot this.

0:02:010:02:03

GRUNTING AND SQUEAKING What's going on, Jen?

0:02:130:02:17

-ANIMAL NOISES STOP

-Sorry, Andy.

0:02:170:02:19

I was finishing Mr Hammond's special birthday surprise.

0:02:190:02:22

-What is it?

-I'm making him a library of animal calls

0:02:220:02:25

so he can hear what all the animals in the world sound like.

0:02:250:02:29

What an amazing present! I've only got him this cactus.

0:02:290:02:32

That's a great present too. Mr Hammond loves cactuses.

0:02:320:02:36

I've still got a couple of animal calls to identify.

0:02:360:02:39

-Could you help me?

-Of course.

0:02:390:02:42

ROARING

0:02:420:02:43

Ah! That's a lion.

0:02:430:02:45

A lion call is so loud, it can be heard from up to five miles away.

0:02:450:02:49

Brilliant! Here's the last one.

0:02:490:02:51

HOWLING

0:02:510:02:54

-Ooh! I've never heard that one before.

-Ah!

0:02:540:02:58

It says here it was recorded in the Sonoran Desert

0:02:580:03:01

-in the United States of America.

-Ah!

0:03:010:03:04

That's exactly where this cactus is from.

0:03:040:03:07

-But I've no idea which animal made THAT call.

-Oh, that's a shame.

0:03:070:03:11

I can't give Mr Hammond an unfinished present.

0:03:110:03:14

-BEEPING

-That's him calling.

-Quick, quick!

0:03:140:03:16

-I don't want him to see the cactus!

-Don't worry. I'll hide it.

0:03:160:03:20

-You take the call.

-Thanks, Jen.

0:03:200:03:22

-Hello, Mr Hammond.

-Ah, hello, you two.

0:03:220:03:25

I was calling to check that you

0:03:250:03:27

-and Jen were coming to my party this evening.

-We'll be there!

-Excellent!

0:03:270:03:31

-Six o'clock sharp - don't be late!

-BOTH:

-We won't!

0:03:310:03:34

HE HANGS UP Great!

0:03:340:03:36

Well, that gives us plenty of time before the party to work out

0:03:360:03:40

-what that mystery animal call is.

-OK.

0:03:400:03:42

-I'll search the park database, and you can look on the internet.

-OK.

0:03:420:03:47

Just be careful not to sit on the...

0:03:470:03:49

-Ooh! Ow! Oh!

-Sorry!

0:03:490:03:52

-I hid the cactus on the chair.

-Oh, no! I've squashed the present!

0:03:520:03:58

-What am I going to get Mr Hammond now?

-Wait a minute!

0:03:590:04:03

If you go to the Sonoran Desert, you could get a new cactus

0:04:030:04:06

-and find out what my animal call is!

-Jen, that's a great idea!

0:04:060:04:10

-Time to go on a safari adventure! Ooh! Ouch! My bottom!

-Sorry!

0:04:100:04:16

Waistcoat - check!

0:04:240:04:26

Hat - check!

0:04:260:04:29

Backpack - check!

0:04:290:04:31

Gizmo...

0:04:310:04:32

..check!

0:04:350:04:36

Coordinates set. Switching to flight mode.

0:04:470:04:51

Thanks, Jen. Engaging boosters.

0:04:510:04:54

Whoa-ho-ho-ho-ho-ho!

0:04:560:04:59

Next stop - the Sonoran Desert!

0:04:590:05:02

Ha-ha-ha-ha!

0:05:020:05:05

-Yes! I've made it! It looks pretty dark around here.

-Don't worry, Andy.

0:05:050:05:11

-According to my scans, the sun will be up there soon.

-Thanks, Jen.

0:05:110:05:15

-I'm going in to land.

-Good luck.

0:05:150:05:17

-And make sure you're back in time for Mr Hammond's party.

-I will.

0:05:170:05:21

Looks like someone's parked here already. Right.

0:05:320:05:35

Well, there are plenty of cactuses around here.

0:05:350:05:38

But first, I need to find out what Jen's mystery animal call is.

0:05:380:05:42

What's that? It's a grasshopper mouse!

0:05:450:05:49

I've always wanted to see one of those. Brilliant!

0:05:490:05:52

Hello!

0:05:560:05:57

I've frightened her. I know - I'll shrink down,

0:05:590:06:02

then I can get close to her without scaring her off.

0:06:020:06:05

To the size of a grasshopper mouse.

0:06:050:06:08

That's better. Now, where did she go?

0:06:130:06:16

RATTLING

0:06:160:06:18

Listen. It's another mystery noise!

0:06:180:06:21

And this one sounds like a...like a rattle.

0:06:210:06:24

Uh-oh!

0:06:270:06:28

A rattlesnake! Quickly!

0:06:310:06:33

A scorpion! Oh!

0:06:350:06:38

A centipede?! Whoa!

0:06:380:06:40

Oh! The desert can be a scary place when you're this size.

0:06:450:06:49

I think I'll hide out in here for a while, just to keep safe. Oh, look!

0:06:490:06:56

Baby grasshopper mice! This must be their den!

0:06:560:07:02

I expect that that was Mum looking for food outside.

0:07:020:07:07

Where's that little one off to?

0:07:070:07:09

Hey, buddy!

0:07:120:07:13

I'm not sure you should be wandering around out here without your mum.

0:07:130:07:17

It's dangerous! I'll follow you, make sure you're safe.

0:07:170:07:21

Come on, little fella! It's time you got back. What's that?

0:07:230:07:28

Oh, it's OK. It's just a flash flood.

0:07:300:07:33

A flash flood?! Run!

0:07:350:07:37

Come on!

0:07:410:07:42

Quick, this way!

0:07:480:07:49

It's OK. The water can't reach us up here.

0:07:540:07:57

We might as well stay until the water's gone.

0:07:580:08:02

HE SIGHS

0:08:020:08:04

Perfect!

0:08:040:08:05

HE SNORES

0:08:190:08:20

BEEPING

0:08:200:08:22

-Jen to Andy! Come in, Andy!

-Oh, hi, Jen.

0:08:220:08:25

Have you done something to your hair?

0:08:250:08:27

Oh, um, I'm getting ready for Mr Hammond's party.

0:08:270:08:30

-Are you on your way back yet?

-Um... Not exactly, no.

0:08:300:08:35

-Well, you'd better get a move on. The party's starting soon.

-Um...

0:08:350:08:39

OK, Jen. I'll be back as quick as I can. Andy out.

0:08:390:08:43

Oh, no! I'm running out of time.

0:08:460:08:48

Not only have I got to get my furry friend back to his mum,

0:08:480:08:51

I still need to find out what Jen's mystery animal call is.

0:08:510:08:55

I'd better get going.

0:08:550:08:57

Wow! There's not a drop of water left out here. It's bone dry.

0:09:030:09:07

Talking of bones, I wouldn't want to end up like him!

0:09:090:09:12

SQUAWKING

0:09:120:09:13

What's that noise? I know what animal's making that call.

0:09:130:09:17

Yes! Harris hawks!

0:09:170:09:20

THEY SQUAWK

0:09:200:09:22

One of the only birds of prey who hunt together in packs.

0:09:220:09:27

They must be on the lookout for tiny mammals, like this guy. And like me!

0:09:270:09:33

I think we'd better make another run for it. Come on!

0:09:330:09:37

Whoa!

0:09:460:09:47

Quick, in here!

0:09:580:09:59

I knew the desert was tough, but I didn't realise it was THIS tough!

0:10:050:10:09

Oh! What an adventure, though. Oh, no!

0:10:090:10:12

I'm not sure how much more of this rattling I can take.

0:10:160:10:20

Rattling... That's it!

0:10:230:10:26

-Andy to Jen!

-Hi, Andy. What's up?

0:10:260:10:29

No time to explain. I need you to send me the sound of a rattlesnake.

0:10:290:10:33

OK.

0:10:330:10:34

-Uploading now.

-Great! I'll be back as soon as I can, I promise. Ooh!

0:10:370:10:42

I hope this works.

0:10:450:10:48

RATTLING

0:10:480:10:52

EAGLE SQUAWKS

0:10:520:10:53

Yes! The sound of the rattlesnake has startled the Harris hawks.

0:10:530:10:57

Now we can get you back to your mum.

0:11:000:11:03

HOWLING

0:11:030:11:04

What was that? A wolf?

0:11:040:11:07

No. That's the mystery animal sound I've been searching for!

0:11:090:11:14

Look - by the tyre!

0:11:190:11:20

HOWLING

0:11:200:11:22

Ah! It's Mum! She's waiting at the den and she's calling for her baby.

0:11:280:11:33

So that was the mystery animal sound - a grasshopper mouse!

0:11:330:11:38

You wait until I tell Jen! She'll be surprised.

0:11:380:11:42

There we go, little buddy! You'll be safe now.

0:11:420:11:46

And I can get back to normal size.

0:11:460:11:49

Great! I've got a party to go to.

0:11:540:11:56

Mustn't forget the cactus!

0:12:000:12:02

Perfect!

0:12:060:12:07

Engaging boosters. Time to head back.

0:12:100:12:14

Ooh!

0:12:250:12:26

CAR HORN BEEPS

0:12:290:12:30

-Jen!

-Andy, hurry, we're late for the party!

0:12:450:12:48

-I'm sorry, but I found out what your mystery animal call is.

-What is it?

0:12:480:12:52

-It's a grasshopper mouse.

-A mouse? Ah!

0:12:520:12:55

-HOWLING

-Incredible!

-I know!

0:12:560:12:58

Now I can give Mr Hammond his special birthday surprise.

0:12:580:13:02

And I can give him his cactus. BEEPING

0:13:020:13:04

-Oh, that's him calling.

-Oh, quick!

-Oh!

0:13:040:13:07

BEEPING CONTINUES

0:13:070:13:11

Oh!

0:13:110:13:12

Ah! Jen, Andy, there you are! The party's started! Are you coming?

0:13:140:13:19

-Of course we are, Mr Hammond. Looks like you're having fun.

-Oh, yes!

0:13:190:13:23

I've been opening my presents.

0:13:230:13:25

Look what the team from the Desert Dome got me.

0:13:250:13:28

-It's a cactus all the way from the Sonoran Desert!

-Ah!

0:13:280:13:32

-How very thoughtful, sir.

-Yes, it is!

0:13:320:13:34

CHEERING

0:13:340:13:35

-HE CHUCKLES

-I'll see you in a minute!

0:13:350:13:38

HE HANGS UP

0:13:380:13:40

Oh, don't worry, Andy.

0:13:400:13:42

-We can both give Mr Hammond the animal call library.

-Thanks, Jen.

0:13:420:13:46

See you next time!

0:13:460:13:48

Jen is trying to put together an audio database of animal sounds for Mr Hammond's birthday, but one sound, resembling a howl, eludes them. Andy jets off in his safari-mobile to the Sonoran desert in America in search of the mystery sound and the animal that made it. Along the way, he meets a grasshopper mouse and escapes a pack of hungry harris hawks.
