# It's Andy's Wild Adventures round the w-o-o-o-rld. #

0:00:260:00:32

Hello, I'm Andy and I work here at Pickles' Animal Park.

0:00:340:00:38

It's my job to look after all the animals,

0:00:380:00:40

even these leaf-cutter ants.

0:00:400:00:43

Have a look at the size of the leaves that they're carrying!

0:00:430:00:46

They're even bigger than the ants themselves! Isn't that right, Laura?

0:00:460:00:51

# I'm so strong, can't you see? I like leaves and leaves like me. #

0:00:510:00:56

But they're not the only animals that can carry heavy loads

0:00:560:00:59

on their backs.

0:00:590:01:00

The next animal I'm going to visit is also a weight-lifter.

0:01:000:01:03

Come on, I'll show you.

0:01:030:01:05

Now, you've probably seen snails in your garden, or out and about.

0:01:080:01:11

But have you ever seen a snail this big?

0:01:110:01:15

It's a giant African land snail and his name is Sylvester

0:01:150:01:19

Just like normal snails, he eats plants and leaves,

0:01:190:01:22

don't you, Sylvester?

0:01:220:01:24

Well to be honest, Andy, I'll eat anything!

0:01:240:01:29

This shell is Sylvester's house

0:01:290:01:31

and he has to carry it around with him all day long,

0:01:310:01:34

so he needs plenty of food to give him energy.

0:01:340:01:36

# Food glorious food! #

0:01:360:01:39

I'm tired now.

0:01:390:01:41

Imagine that!

0:01:410:01:42

Carrying your house on your back.

0:01:420:01:44

That's why he eats plenty of leaves to give him energy.

0:01:440:01:46

Come on, Sylvester, let's go and get some more leaves for you.

0:01:460:01:50

-RADIO:

-'Come in, Andy. Over.'

0:01:510:01:53

Oh, that'll be the boss. Hello, Mr Pickles. Andy here.

0:01:530:01:58

Receiving loud and clear. Over.

0:01:580:02:01

'Andy, I just passed the warthogs

0:02:010:02:03

'and noticed they've run of water for their mud baths.

0:02:030:02:06

'Do you think you could get some? Over.'

0:02:060:02:08

No problem, Sir. I'll go on my tea break and I'll bring them over.

0:02:080:02:12

Over.

0:02:120:02:14

'Oh, good man! Pickles out!'

0:02:140:02:18

-Hi, Kip.

-Hi, Andy.

0:02:270:02:31

What's that you've got here? Another brilliant invention?

0:02:310:02:34

This is my clever cat climbing rope.

0:02:340:02:38

I just throw it over a branch and hey presto!

0:02:380:02:40

I can climb up any tree in the garden with getting my claws dirty!

0:02:400:02:44

A very useful invention indeed, Kip.

0:02:440:02:47

I still have to test it.

0:02:470:02:49

Anyway, what have you been up to?

0:02:490:02:50

Well, I've been feeding the giant African land snail.

0:02:500:02:53

Does it have to carry its house on its back like other snails.

0:02:530:02:57

Of course, Kip, all snails do that.

0:02:570:02:59

Oh, I'm glad I'm not a snail, then.

0:02:590:03:01

I wouldn't like to be carrying something on my back all the time.

0:03:010:03:04

Well, snails aren't the only animals to carry things on their backs.

0:03:040:03:08

Some animals carry their babies on their back. Like monkeys, or frogs.

0:03:080:03:13

In fact, there's even one type brightly-coloured frog

0:03:130:03:16

that lives in Central America in the rainforest,

0:03:160:03:19

and even though it's the size of my fingernail,

0:03:190:03:23

it carries its young high up into the trees to look for a safe pond.

0:03:230:03:27

Ponds in the trees?

0:03:270:03:29

I don't think I've ever heard of one of those before.

0:03:290:03:32

Well, you know what this sounds like, don't you, Kip?

0:03:320:03:35

BOTH: Time to go on a wild adventure!

0:03:350:03:37

We'll see frogs take their tadpoles high up into the trees!

0:03:370:03:40

And we can test my clever cat climbing rope!

0:03:400:03:43

Come on, let's go!

0:03:430:03:46

-One - Gadgetpack!

-Check.

0:03:470:03:51

-Two - gizmo!

-Check.

0:03:510:03:55

Three - my clever cat climbing rope!

0:03:550:03:57

Check.

0:03:570:03:58

Just in case we need it.

0:03:580:04:01

And last but not least -

0:04:010:04:03

The Kipmobile!

0:04:030:04:05

Seatbelts on.

0:04:050:04:07

Hit it, Kip!

0:04:080:04:10

Lift off!

0:04:440:04:46

Ha-ha!

0:04:510:04:53

Woo-hoo-hoo! We're in space!

0:04:530:04:56

So, where to, Andy?

0:04:560:04:58

A place called Costa Rica, Kip.

0:04:580:05:00

Right in the middle of Central America.

0:05:000:05:03

That's where our fantastic climbing frogs live.

0:05:030:05:06

Then Costa Rica, it is!

0:05:060:05:08

Go Cat-Nav, go!

0:05:080:05:10

Costa Rica, here we com-m-m-e!

0:05:100:05:14

Wow! It sure is green down there.

0:05:190:05:23

That's because it's a rainforest Kip.

0:05:230:05:26

And they get so much rain that they're full of plants,

0:05:260:05:28

and lots and lots of animals too.

0:05:280:05:30

Just like those parrots down there!

0:05:320:05:35

Oh, wow! What amazing colours!

0:05:350:05:38

If you think they're amazing, you wait until we see the frogs.

0:05:380:05:41

They're even brighter!

0:05:410:05:44

Perfect landing, Kip.

0:05:480:05:51

Thanks.

0:05:510:05:52

-CHIRRUPING

-Hey, did you hear that?

0:05:520:05:57

-What?

-That chirruping sound?

0:05:570:06:00

Oh, yes. What is it?

0:06:000:06:02

That, my friend, is the very big sound of the very little frog

0:06:020:06:06

-that we've come so far to see.

-Hooray!

0:06:060:06:10

The wonderfully-named Strawberry Poison Dart Frog.

0:06:100:06:13

Oh, did you just say poison?

0:06:130:06:17

Yeah. To stop other animals from eating them,

0:06:170:06:20

they're covered in this really poisonous slime.

0:06:200:06:23

You know what?

0:06:230:06:25

I think I might just stay here with the Kipmobile for a while.

0:06:250:06:30

Just to make sure that... that... the frogs don't get in it!

0:06:300:06:33

We don't want to accidentally take any poisonous frogs

0:06:330:06:36

back to Pickles' Animal Park, do we?

0:06:360:06:39

No, that's true. We certainly don't want to do that.

0:06:390:06:42

No. So I'd better stay here and keep a look.

0:06:420:06:44

Well, if you're sure.

0:06:440:06:46

Oh, look! I've found it! A strawberry poison dart frog!

0:06:590:07:05

Just what we've travelled all this way to come and see.

0:07:050:07:09

Look. Do you see what I mean about the colours?

0:07:090:07:11

They're really, really bright, aren't they?

0:07:110:07:13

That tells the other animals

0:07:130:07:16

in the forest that they're poisonous and not good for eating.

0:07:160:07:20

Ooo! He's off! I'm going to follow him.

0:07:200:07:22

Hey, Andy how's it going? Are you all right?

0:07:270:07:30

Aww. Everything's great, Kip.

0:07:300:07:32

I've followed a frog all the way back to its tiny eggs

0:07:320:07:35

that it's laid here on this wet leaf.

0:07:350:07:38

Look.

0:07:380:07:40

Wow, they're so tiny, aren't they?

0:07:400:07:42

Yes, they really are.

0:07:420:07:44

Some of the eggs have already turned into tadpoles.

0:07:440:07:48

The only problem is that tadpoles need to live in water

0:07:480:07:52

and this hot sun is drying this pool of water on this leaf here.

0:07:520:07:56

So what does the mum do?

0:07:560:07:58

She gives the little one a piggy back!

0:07:580:08:00

All the way up to the swimming pool in the sky!

0:08:020:08:06

But to see it the way a frog sees it, I need to be much smaller.

0:08:140:08:17

So...

0:08:170:08:19

Size of a strawberry poison dart frog!

0:08:190:08:23

Now, that frog may be a heroic hopper

0:08:320:08:35

but I've got my own way of climbing up the tree.

0:08:350:08:39

Kip's clever-cat climbing rope! This should work!

0:08:410:08:45

OK, here goes.

0:08:450:08:47

Yee-hah!

0:08:470:08:50

Yes! That's much better!

0:08:530:08:54

Now I can follow the frog as it climbs up the tree!

0:08:540:08:57

Oop, he's off again.

0:09:010:09:02

Wait for me!

0:09:040:09:05

Hang on a minute.

0:09:090:09:11

What the mum's trying to do is to get to one of these plants

0:09:110:09:15

which grow high up in the branches of these trees.

0:09:150:09:18

And the reason she likes them so much

0:09:180:09:21

is because when they fill up with rain water...

0:09:210:09:24

..they make perfect little ponds to leave her tiddly tiny tadpole in.

0:09:270:09:32

Almost there.

0:09:340:09:36

Whoo! Now that's one tadpole that's safe and sound.

0:09:410:09:46

Ah, I'd love to get in there with it!

0:09:460:09:49

Well, actually...why not?.

0:09:490:09:51

Time for a dip!

0:09:510:09:53

I need to be much smaller, so... size of a tadpole!

0:09:570:10:02

Oh, Mum's off, here's my chance for a swim.

0:10:150:10:20

OK, tadpole!

0:10:200:10:22

Here I come! Whee!

0:10:250:10:27

Wow! That was incredible! I actually got to swim with a tadpole.

0:10:430:10:49

Now, as you can see, tadpoles don't have arms and legs,

0:10:490:10:52

but they do have a tail to help them swim.

0:10:520:10:55

Now, all this little guy needs is some food and luckily,

0:10:570:11:01

his mum has prepared something earlier.

0:11:010:11:04

It's another egg, but this one is very special.

0:11:060:11:10

It's not made to turn into a tadpole.

0:11:100:11:12

It's actually made to use as food for this little fella.

0:11:120:11:15

Aww, there we go! Looks like he was hungry.

0:11:150:11:19

This has been an incredible adventure!

0:11:220:11:25

We got to see exactly what we wanted to see.

0:11:250:11:27

A frog take its tadpole on its back,

0:11:270:11:30

all the way to this safe pond high up in the trees.

0:11:300:11:34

It's been brilliant. Now it's time to get back down!

0:11:340:11:37

Oh, hang on a minute.

0:11:390:11:42

How do I get of here?

0:11:420:11:44

Oh, no! I haven't got sticky fingers like frogs.

0:11:440:11:48

I'm going to need some help. Kip!

0:11:480:11:52

Andy?

0:11:530:11:55

Andy?!

0:11:550:11:57

Kip?! Kip, are you there? I'm going to need some help.

0:11:570:12:01

-Kip?!

-'Here I am, Andy.'

0:12:010:12:04

Ah, nice one, Kip! I can always count on you!

0:12:040:12:07

Andy upload!

0:12:070:12:10

See you later, froggies!

0:12:100:12:13

Andy? Andy?

0:12:150:12:18

-Kip?!

-Andy?

0:12:180:12:20

Here I am, Kip!

0:12:200:12:22

There you are! Oh, you made me jump!

0:12:220:12:28

What, like a Strawberry Poison Dart Frog?

0:12:280:12:31

Hey! I'm still the size of a tadpole!

0:12:330:12:36

Don't worry, we'll sort you on the way home.

0:12:360:12:39

Aw, thanks Kip!

0:12:390:12:41

-RADIO:

-'Andy, are you receiving? Over.'

0:13:080:13:11

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

0:13:110:13:13

'Andy, can you hear me?'

0:13:130:13:16

Hello, Mr Pickles. Andy here. Over.

0:13:160:13:20

'Where have you been, Andy?

0:13:200:13:22

'I've been trying to get hold of you. Over.'

0:13:220:13:25

Erm... Well, Mr Pickles, I've just been... um...

0:13:250:13:28

I was just, um...

0:13:280:13:30

-I've just been collecting some water for the warthogs.

-Over

0:13:300:13:35

'Oh, well done, I knew I could rely on you, Andy.

0:13:350:13:39

'Pickles out!'

0:13:390:13:41

Ha-ha. That was lucky!

0:13:410:13:42

See you next time. Come on, Kip!
