Where be that Andy to?
Hello, Roy. Are you ready to move into your new place today?
I certainly am, Andy,
I got a bellyful of grass though tidying up this place.
Oh, good! Well, I'll be really careful with you.
'Andy, come in, Andy. Over.'
Oh, excuse me, it's Mr Pickles, the boss!
Hello, Mr Pickles. Andy here, receiving loud and clear. Over.
'Andy, have you found something
'to make Roy the long-eared rabbit's box more comfortable?'
Don't worry, sir, I've got a bale of st... Oh, no.
Well, I did have a bale of straw in the back of the buggy,
but I had a bump earlier, see it must have fallen out. Over.
'You'll need to find something quickly -
'there's a coach load of school children visiting the park today
'and they'll want to see Roy settled in his new home. Over.'
No problem, sir. I'll head back to the workshop right now
to try and find some. Over.
'Fantastic. Well done, Andy. Pickles out.'
Right. I'd better get a move on. See you later, Roy.
You haven't seen any carrots round here, have you?
Nope, all right, I'll try back here then.
-Oh! Hello, Andy!
Er, why have you got those springs?
These? The springs in the buggy have worn out.
So that's why it's so bumpy at the moment!
I lost a bale of straw earlier because we were bouncing around.
Which reminds me, I need to get more straw for the buggy.
I'm sure I put it over here, somewhere.
You should be more careful, Andy.
Careful?! I'll have you know I'm very...
Maybe I could be a bit more careful whilst carrying things, anyway.
-I need to be more like a c...
-A cat! Carefully carrying a kitten?
-No. I was going to say more like a...
-A cheetah and her cubs!
-No, no. Another animal, like a...
-Lioness and her cubs!
No! I need to be as careful as a caiman.
Yes! Just like a caiman...
What's a caiman?
Ha! A caiman is a reptile, a bit like a crocodile!
Eww, a crocodile?! Well, they're huge animals with razor-sharp teeth!
Caimans don't sound very careful to me.
Well, they are with their babies, Kip!
They can carry their babies in their mouth without even hurting them!
And they could take the shell off an egg, using their mouth,
without damaging anything inside!
Wow! I'd love to see that, Andy.
You know what this sounds like?
-BOTH: Time to go on a wild adventure!
-Come on, let's go!
-One, gadget pack!
Last but not least, the Kipmobile!
Hit it, Kip!
Woo-hoo-hoo! We're in space!
So... Where to, Andy?
Argentina in South America, Kip.
There are lots of big pools of water there
where the caimans like to look after their babies!
Argentina it is. Go, cat nav, go!
This looks like a good place to land, Kip.
Just over there. Carefully.
No problem, Andy!
Oh, Kip! I thought you were going to land carefully?!
Oh, sorry, Andy. I think I need to fix the suspension.
Oh, while you do that, I'll go search for the caiman.
Ah, that's a good idea!
This mound of twigs and earth is the caiman's nest.
I'll show this to Kip a bit later on.
And inside the nest are lots of tiny caiman eggs.
Now, I'm going to take a look, but just so I don't disturb them...
Size of a caiman egg!
Brilliant. Come on! Right.
Hey Kip, it looks like I got into the caiman's nest just in time!
-Look! The eggs are about to hatch!
Eggs? Caimans sound more like birds than crocodiles!
Caiman are reptiles, not birds - but like birds,
most reptiles do lay eggs. Amazing!
Check this out, Kip. There can be up to 40 eggs in a caiman nest.
Look! They're all starting to hatch!
Wow! Nice one, guys! It must be really good
to come out of your shell and have a good stretch!
Why are they all squeaking, Andy?
It's because they're calling out for their mum!
Whoa, Andy, here comes the mum now. And she's huge!
Wow! Look at those teeth, Andy. She looks like a dinosaur!
Oh, she's digging down into the nest. Why is she doing that?
Well, that's what we've been waiting for.
It's because it's quite dark and dirty in here
and these guys would like to go for their very first swim and get clean!
Oh! She's stopped, Andy.
Hmm... She's probably listening to find out where we are, Kip.
Come on, guys, keep on squeaking!
Yes! She's found us! Come on, let's go!
Ah, that's better! Right. Oh, I better stand out the way.
It looks like the baby caiman are going for a ride!
Kip! This is exactly what I wanted to show you!
The mum is taking the baby caiman down to the water in her mouth
and taking it for its very first swim!
Er, are you sure it doesn't hurt?
No! You see the mum's really careful not to close her jaws too tightly
and she uses her teeth to stop the babies from falling out!
Caiman mums are really hardworking.
She knows the youngsters will be much safer in the water.
So she carries them all to the river.
Now that's what I call a careful animal!
I hope you enjoyed the ride, little fella,
because now it's time for a swim! Gently does it.
Oh, he doesn't need armbands. Well done!
That's the last of the babies
but there are still some eggs that haven't hatched yet,
and they're so strong that it makes it really quite difficult
for the baby caiman to break out.
Now, this is how careful caimans are!
The mum is actually rolling the egg around in her mouth
so that she breaks the shell,
without hurting the baby caiman inside!
Look! She did it!
What do you think about that, Kip?
Caimans have got to be the most careful creatures in the world!
Aww, I know, Kip.
And that's what makes them FANTASTIC parents.
Ooh, oh, whoa!
Um, Kip?! Can you come and get me, please?
Andy, are you OK?
I've fallen back into the nest and now there's no way to get out.
Oh! Nice one Kip, I can always count on you!
-Oh! There you are!
-For some reason I haven't grown back.
Oh, don't worry Andy, I'm sure we can sort it out on the way home.
-Oh, thanks, Kip!
-Hold on, little guy!
Well done for fixing the suspension on the Kipmobile, Kip.
The journey on the way back was a lot more comfortable.
Aww. Thanks, Andy!
'Andy, come in. Come in, Andy. Over.'
Oh, it's Mr Pickles, the boss.
Hello, Mr Pickles, Andy here. Over.
'Andy, have you found something
'to make Roy the rabbit's box more comfortable? Over.'
Er... No problems, Mr Pickles. I've got some, erm... Oh!
I've got some leaves and...
..some twigs. Over.
'Good work, Andy. Well done!
'You've just got enough time to take Roy the rabbit to his new enclosure,
'before the coach load of children arrive! Ha-ha! Pickles out.'
Well, that worked out well, Kip!
It sure did, Andy.
Now, just be careful, OK?
I'm always careful! What do you... Ohh!
See you next time!
