Hello, I'm Andy and I work here at Pickles Animal Park.
It's my job to look after the animals
and make sure they don't go hungry.
Like these zebra.
They're OK, because they feed on grass and there's plenty of it,
so they don't have to run very far to get food.
But they can run, really fast, especially if they are being chased
by hungry animals like...
(We're off to see them next. Shh.)
Lions, what lions?
Unlike zebras, lions eat meat for their tea, isn't that right, Laura?
It is, Andy, and I'm very, very hungry. Any chance of a bite?
Yes, of course, as long as it's not me.
In the animal park, I feed them their meat,
but in the wild, they have to hunt for it.
And they're very fast runners, which is why I stay in this truck.
-Have a good day, Laura.
-Dad, what's for dinner?
-I'll tell you what, son, it's not my tail.
-'Andy, are you there, Andy? Over.'
-It's Mr Pickles, my boss.
Hello, Mr Pickles, Andy here receiving loud and clear, over.
'Hello, I've just been past the flamingos and
'one doesn't have enough mud to make a nest.
'Could you bring me some over? Erm, over.'
No problem, Mr Pickles,
I'm going on my tea break and I'll get straight to it, over.
'Good lad, speak later. Pickles out.'
-Ah, hello, Kip.
Ah, excellent, are you making me a new pair of shoes?
Walking around the park can really wear your boots out.
Which is why these aren't normal shoes.
These are my really rapid rocket shoes.
-You press the button and the rockets start up on the back.
How cool are they?!
You'll be able to get around in half the time,
but first, I need to test them.
Well, I'm sure they'll be a runaway success, Kip.
HE LAUGHS So what have you been doing?
I've been to see the zebras and lions
-to make sure they've got enough food.
aren't they like racehorses with black and white stripes?
Kind of, Kip, they do have black stripes,
-which help them to hide from danger in the long grass.
-Wow, that's cool.
Yes, but if they do get spotted, they can run really fast.
Not as fast as a cat though, hey?
That depends on which cat.
Lions are cats and they're definitely faster than zebras.
Yay for cats!
You don't have to be as big as a lion or a zebra to be fast.
You're telling me, I'm small and super speedy.
Yes, you are, Kip, but some super speedy animals are really tiny.
In East Africa, there's an amazing animal called
an elephant shrew.
-An elephant shrew?
That doesn't sound tiny, that sounds huge.
It's not called an elephant shrew because of its size.
It's called an elephant shrew because of its nose.
It's long and bendy, just like an elephant's trunk.
It helps to sniff out food when it's running quickly.
-It's brilliant, you should see it.
-I'd love to see one in action.
-You know what this means, don't you, Kip?
-Yes, I do.
BOTH: Time to go on a wild adventure!
We can see how fast elephant shrews run.
You can test out my really rapid rocket shoes.
-What are we waiting for? Let's go!
-One, gadget pack.
Three, really rapid rocket shoes.
Just in case we need them.
And, last but not least, the Kipmobile!
Seat belts on.
Hit it, Kip.
Woo-hoo-hoo, we're in space!
So, where to?
Well, I know one country where they live,
Kenya in East Africa. Let's go there.
Kenya, here we come. Go, catnav, go!
Oh, wow, that was great! There's nothing I like more than...
-What are they?
-Oh, wow, vultures!
Vultures, what do they eat?
That's the amazing thing, Kip, they eat anything,
as long as it's made of meat.
Really? I've got a good idea, why don't we land?
Who wants to spend all their time in the sky?
Actually, Kip, I was quite enjoying myself up here... Whoa!
Oh, look, those vultures seem to be landing too.
Yeah, well, that's where they feed, on the ground.
Great, so there are birds everywhere.
Right, I'm ready, are you coming? Or maybe you...
BOTH: should stay here and look after the Kipmobile.
-OK, Kip, see you later.
The only problem with looking for an elephant shrew is
they're really small, and I'm really tall,
so it makes it difficult for me to find them in the long grass.
Unless I shrink down to their size.
Size of an elephant shrew.
Yes, come on,
let's go find one. Hee!
Huh? Ah, a vulture.
Oh, come on, Kip, it's only one little vulture.
Ssh. I've found one, hiding behind the grass.
Oh, look how it's twitching its little nose.
And that's why it's called an elephant shrew,
because of its nose. It's shaped like an elephant's trunk, remember?
But in this part of Africa, they call it a sengi,
so that's what I'm going to call it, a sengi.
Come on, let's take a closer look. Come on.
Ah, look, she's got a baby with her
and she's giving her some milk.
But to make enough milk, the mum sengis have to catch lots of food,
like insects, but to do that, they need to be really fast...
See, I told you.
Sengis can really move.
OK, Kip, just remember that you are the cat here,
even though you are surrounded by
Can you see all the tracks that they've made?
They go everywhere... Whoa!
It's like watching a sengi motorway.
At last, she's stopped,
and it looks like she's caught what she was looking for,
a lovely juicy dragonfly.
Now, I'm a pretty fast runner,
but there's no way I could beat her in a running race.
Or could I?
Kip's really rapid rocket shoes.
Now, these just might be the answer.
Right, switch them on.
first one to the forest. May the best man win, or sengi.
On your marks... Wait for me, sengi!
OK, OK, you win.
You're definitely faster than me,
even with Kip's boots on.
Ooh, I am totally puffed out.
That's a funny looking tree.
In fact, it looks exactly like...
an elephant's foot.
It is, it's an elephant,
and the sengis have returned too,
which means I've found
an elephant shrew and an elephant.
Luckily, elephants only eat plants,
so there's no fear of her eating me.
Mind you, that doesn't mean that she won't... Whoa!
..step on me.
Kip, Kip, are you there?
Oh, yeah, I'm here, Andy. Are you all right?
I can't see you and you sound a little flat.
Er, yeah, you could say that.
Well done, Kip, I knew I could count on you.
See you later, sengi.
-Good timing, Kip.
-My nice clean seats.
-Go and clean yourself up, Andy.
'Come in, Andy, are you receiving? Over.'
Mr Pickles, the boss.
Hello, Mr Pickles, Andy here. Over.
'Where have you been, Andy?
'I've been trying to get hold of you. Over.'
Well, you see, the thing is, sir.
The thing is...
I've been collecting mud for the flamingos' nest. Over.
'Ah, marvellous, just what we need. Pickles out.'
Hey, Kip, have you got that bath ready yet? Remember, extra bubbles.
