0:00:290:00:34

Oh, hey, Andy!

0:00:350:00:37

Hello, and welcome to Pickles Animal Park.

0:00:370:00:40

I'm Andy, and today we're having a treasure hunt,

0:00:400:00:43

so I'm putting these signs up as clues.

0:00:430:00:47

It's very exciting.

0:00:470:00:48

Hi there, guys. You all right? How are you doing, Mickey?

0:00:480:00:52

I'm fine, Andy. What's the treasure? Is it a banana?

0:00:520:00:55

No, it's not a banana.

0:00:550:00:57

Actually, I'm not sure what it is.

0:00:570:00:59

'Andy, come in. Over.'

0:00:590:01:01

That'll be Mr Pickles, my boss.

0:01:010:01:03

Hello, Mr Pickles. Andy here. Over.

0:01:030:01:06

'I just wanted to check you've put the signs

0:01:060:01:10

-'for the treasure hunt out. Over.'

-No problem, Mr Pickles. They're up.

0:01:100:01:14

I've got one more to do, and then it's done. Over.

0:01:140:01:18

'And they're all pointing the right way, Andy?'

0:01:180:01:21

No problem. They're all pointing...

0:01:210:01:23

'And you've got a really good prize for the winner, Andy? Over.'

0:01:230:01:28

Erm, yes, of course, sir. No problem.

0:01:280:01:30

I've got something exciting and exotic.

0:01:300:01:33

In fact, I'm just off to the workshop to get it now. Over.

0:01:330:01:37

Oh, no!

0:01:370:01:38

I hammered the nail in the wrong place on this sign,

0:01:380:01:42

and it's turned upside down.

0:01:420:01:44

Who knows where the others are facing?

0:01:440:01:45

Don't worry, I'll get the boys!

0:01:450:01:47

I'd better get back. Maybe Kip can help.

0:01:470:01:51

Time to find the treasure! Move!

0:01:510:01:54

Hello, Kip!

0:01:560:01:57

Oh, hi, Andy!

0:01:570:01:59

Er, w-w-what are you looking for?

0:02:000:02:03

Looking for a prize for the treasure hunt.

0:02:030:02:06

I told Mr Pickles I'd find something exotic and exciting.

0:02:060:02:09

I don't know if we have anything like that.

0:02:090:02:12

I'm worried no one'll find the treasure anyway.

0:02:120:02:14

I've been having trouble with the signs.

0:02:140:02:17

They keep turning upside down! Nobody'll know where to go.

0:02:170:02:21

Ha-ha! Oh, well, sounds like a topsy-turvy treasure hunt!

0:02:210:02:25

Mind you, that could be fun.

0:02:250:02:27

Well, fun for a creature like a fruitbat, maybe,

0:02:270:02:31

but not for the visitors.

0:02:310:02:32

Why would a fruitbat like that, Andy?

0:02:320:02:36

Because fruitbats spend most of their time being upside down, Kip.

0:02:360:02:41

Oh, wow!

0:02:410:02:42

Well, as it happens, I've just added a new button to the Kipmobile.

0:02:420:02:47

It's called the Big Dipper Upside Down Flipper!

0:02:470:02:51

You like the idea of being upside down?

0:02:510:02:53

Well, I've never tried it, but it sounds fun!

0:02:530:02:56

Well, fruitbats love it!

0:02:560:02:59

Can we go and fly with them, Andy?

0:02:590:03:01

You know what this sounds like, Kip?

0:03:010:03:04

BOTH: Time to go on a wild adventure!

0:03:040:03:07

Oh, and we can try out my new Big Dipper Upside Down Flipper!

0:03:070:03:11

And maybe we can find an exotic and exciting prize!

0:03:110:03:14

Ha-ha! Let's go!

0:03:140:03:16

-One, gadget pack.

-Check!

0:03:190:03:21

-Two, gizmo.

-Check!

0:03:210:03:25

Three, the Big Dipper Upside Down Flipper.

0:03:250:03:28

-Check!

-Just in case we need it.

0:03:280:03:31

And, last but not least, the Kipmobile!

0:03:310:03:35

Seat belts on.

0:03:350:03:36

Hit it, Kip!

0:03:390:03:40

Liftoff!

0:04:140:04:15

Woo-hoo! We're in space!

0:04:230:04:26

Where to, Andy?

0:04:260:04:28

Zambia in southern Africa, Kip.

0:04:280:04:31

Right.

0:04:310:04:32

Let's try out my new Big Dipper Upside Down Flipper on the way!

0:04:320:04:36

Ha-ha! Are you ready, Andy?

0:04:360:04:39

Erm. I think so!

0:04:390:04:40

Great! Zambia here we come!

0:04:400:04:43

Go, catnav, go!

0:04:430:04:44

Woooooaaaaaahhhh!

0:04:440:04:47

OK, Kip. I think this is the place. Why don't we land just over there?

0:04:550:05:00

Oh, OK, Andy.

0:05:000:05:02

-Oh, Kip?

-Mm-hm.

0:05:020:05:06

Do you think we should turn the right way up?

0:05:060:05:09

Oh, OK, Andy.

0:05:090:05:10

Erm, Andy.

0:05:130:05:17

-Yes?

-It won't go back the right way up.

0:05:170:05:21

Oh.

0:05:220:05:23

BOTH: Wooaaaaahhhh!

0:05:230:05:27

CRASH!

0:05:270:05:30

Erm, not what I'd call the best landing in the world, Kip.

0:05:300:05:36

Sorry, Andy. At least we landed the right way up...

0:05:360:05:40

..eventually.

0:05:400:05:42

Look, Kip! We've got here just in time to see the fruitbats

0:05:420:05:46

before they fly off into the night!

0:05:460:05:48

If fruitbats have wings, does that mean they're a kind of bird?

0:05:500:05:55

I can see why you'd say that, Kip, but no, they're not birds.

0:05:550:05:59

They don't have feathers, they don't have beaks,

0:05:590:06:02

and their mums don't lay eggs.

0:06:020:06:04

Bats are mammals. In fact, they're the only mammal that can fly.

0:06:040:06:09

Come on, let's take a closer look.

0:06:120:06:14

There's so much more I want to show you!

0:06:140:06:17

Erm, well, I might just stay here and see if I can mend

0:06:170:06:20

the Big Dipper Upside Down Flipper on the Kipmobile.

0:06:200:06:23

OK, Kip, good idea. See you soon!

0:06:230:06:26

Bye!

0:06:260:06:27

Help!

0:06:310:06:32

Now, lots of the fruitbats are roosting high up in the trees.

0:06:370:06:41

They're hanging close together because there's not much room

0:06:410:06:46

and there are so many of them.

0:06:460:06:48

To fit in, I'm going to need to shrink to their size.

0:06:520:06:56

Size of a giant fruitbat.

0:06:560:06:59

Great! Now I need to get up there and hang out with the bats.

0:07:070:07:11

Rocket pack, on!

0:07:120:07:15

OK, here I go!

0:07:200:07:21

Wow! There are thousands of bats roosting up here!

0:07:250:07:29

Roosting is what it's called when the bats are hanging out

0:07:290:07:33

and resting like this.

0:07:330:07:34

And those beautiful wings are not just used for flying,

0:07:360:07:40

they're used to keep themselves warm,

0:07:400:07:42

and they wrap the wings around them, like this.

0:07:420:07:46

Oh, I've got to give this a try! Hey, Kip! Are you there?

0:07:460:07:50

This is exactly what I wanted to show you.

0:07:510:07:54

Bats hanging upside down, look!

0:07:540:07:56

Andy, are you OK? You look kind of odd.

0:07:580:08:02

I'm fine, Kip. I'm just hanging out with the bats.

0:08:020:08:05

Hello! Woah! Nice to meet you!

0:08:050:08:10

But why do bats hang upside down?

0:08:100:08:13

Well, Kip, they don't like taking off from the ground.

0:08:130:08:17

They find it easier to drop from the branch and fly away.

0:08:170:08:20

Isn't it hard to hang from your feet all the time?

0:08:200:08:24

Not for bats, Kip. This is how it works. Woah!

0:08:240:08:27

Oh, well. This is how it works.

0:08:290:08:32

We relax our hands, and they stay open, like this.

0:08:320:08:35

But when a bat relaxes its feet, it stays closed. Like this.

0:08:350:08:40

How come you're able to hang there, Andy?

0:08:400:08:43

Well, I'm cheating, you see, Kip.

0:08:430:08:45

I've got my legs around the branch.

0:08:450:08:47

Come to think of it, I'm getting a bit dizzy now.

0:08:470:08:50

Maybe it's time to come down.

0:08:500:08:52

OK, Andy, but...

0:08:520:08:54

Wooooaaaaahhhh!

0:08:540:08:56

THUD!

0:08:560:08:58

Ooooh!

0:08:580:08:59

Be careful!

0:09:030:09:05

Another great landing, eh, Kip?

0:09:050:09:07

Ha! I think I've fixed the Kipmobile.

0:09:070:09:10

Great. We need to catch up if we want to fly with the fruitbats.

0:09:100:09:14

I think something must have... scared them off!

0:09:140:09:18

I'll get you out of there, Andy!

0:09:200:09:22

Andy, upload!

0:09:280:09:31

Ha-ha-ha!

0:09:360:09:37

You like being upside down more than a fruitbat, don't you, Andy?

0:09:370:09:42

Maybe not quite that much, Kip!

0:09:420:09:44

But I tell you what I would like - to fly with them!

0:09:440:09:48

Hold on!

0:09:480:09:50

Ah, now this is flying!

0:09:580:10:01

Oh, wow! There are so many bats! Where are they all going, Andy?

0:10:010:10:06

They're all looking for food.

0:10:060:10:09

Some bats will fly for over an hour to find the right place for dinner.

0:10:090:10:14

So it's a bit like us driving to a restaurant to eat.

0:10:140:10:17

Yeah, I suppose it is, Kip.

0:10:170:10:19

Can we follow them to see what they eat?

0:10:190:10:21

Absolutely, let's do it.

0:10:210:10:23

They'd better hurry. It's getting dark.

0:10:230:10:26

Don't worry, Kip.

0:10:260:10:28

Fruitbats are nocturnal, meaning they're active at night,

0:10:280:10:32

so that's when they like to eat.

0:10:320:10:34

We're nearly there. It must be dinnertime.

0:10:340:10:37

What do fruitbats eat for dinner, Andy?

0:10:370:10:40

Well, the clue is in the name, Kip.

0:10:400:10:43

Fruitbats.

0:10:430:10:44

They eat bats?!

0:10:440:10:46

No, they don't eat bats, they eat fruit.

0:10:460:10:49

There are lots of mango trees around here,

0:10:490:10:52

and the one fruit that bats love to eat are mangoes.

0:10:520:10:55

They sink their big, sharp teeth into the fruit,

0:10:550:10:59

and then suck all the juice out. Let's have a closer look.

0:10:590:11:03

Ah, look. Delicious!

0:11:050:11:08

Yeah, mangoes look nice.

0:11:080:11:10

Yes, a nice, tasty, exotic fruit, Kip.

0:11:100:11:12

Oh, hang on. This one looks juicier.

0:11:150:11:19

-SPLAT!

-Oh!

0:11:190:11:21

Ugh!

0:11:210:11:24

That's disgusting, Andy!

0:11:240:11:28

But generally, it's nicer

0:11:290:11:31

when the fruitbats haven't chewed on it first!

0:11:310:11:34

Come on, Kip. Let's go back to the workshop. I'd better tidy up.

0:11:340:11:38

OK, Andy.

0:11:380:11:40

Kip, on the way back,

0:11:400:11:42

please don't press the Big Dipper Upside Down Flipper button.

0:11:420:11:46

OK, Andy.

0:11:460:11:48

See you later, fruitbats. Enjoy your dinner!

0:11:500:11:54

Now this is flying!

0:12:030:12:05

No, THIS is flying!

0:12:060:12:08

-A-ha!

-Oh, no, not again!

0:12:100:12:14

'Come in, Andy! Over.'

0:12:400:12:42

Uh-oh! It's Mr Pickles, the boss!

0:12:420:12:44

Hello, Mr Pickles. Andy here, receiving loud and clear. Over.

0:12:440:12:49

'Ah, Andy. I wanted to speak to you about the treasure hunt.'

0:12:490:12:52

Oh, no! The signs were the wrong way round!

0:12:540:12:56

'It's been a great success!

0:12:560:12:58

'Those signs you put up have been sending the visitors

0:12:580:13:02

'all round the park. They've had a great time!

0:13:020:13:05

'Have you got an exciting and exotic prize for the winner?'

0:13:050:13:10

Oh, erm, yes, Mr Pickles. It's absolutely fine.

0:13:100:13:15

I've got just the thing right here. Over.

0:13:150:13:18

'Oh, good work, Andy.

0:13:180:13:21

'Bring it on over. We've got the winner here. Pickles out!'

0:13:210:13:25

This mango is the perfect prize, Kip.

0:13:250:13:28

It's an exciting and exotic fruit.

0:13:280:13:31

And tasty, too. Oh, well done, Andy!

0:13:310:13:34

-See you next time for another wild adventure.

-Yeah!

0:13:340:13:37

ANDY WHISTLES

0:13:370:13:39
