0:00:290:00:33

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,

0:00:380:00:41

including these marvellous macaws.

0:00:410:00:43

-Hello, Patricia, how are you?

-Hello. I'm very hungry!

0:00:430:00:47

-Are you feeling peckish?

-Peckish? I've been waiting ages.

0:00:470:00:51

-Where's my nuts?

-All right, here's a nut.

0:00:510:00:54

-CHOMPING DROWNS SPEECH

-Oh, nuts...

0:00:540:00:57

I shouldn't speak with me mouth full...

0:00:570:01:00

They're not the only animals that like eating nuts.

0:01:000:01:04

Let's go visit a few more. All right, Patricia.

0:01:040:01:07

That's your lot. See ya.

0:01:070:01:09

But... Hang on, is that it? Oh....

0:01:090:01:12

-MONKEYS SCREECH

-Come on, guys.

0:01:140:01:17

These cheeky little monkeys are called rhesus macaques.

0:01:170:01:21

Although they love eating roots and leaves, they also love nuts.

0:01:210:01:26

-Don't you, guys?

-Whoa!

0:01:260:01:27

Oh, Frankie, I think it's raining nuts.

0:01:270:01:30

Don't be silly, you're on the floor. Hee-hee! Argh!

0:01:300:01:34

Now, where am I? Oh, I want some more of... Oh!

0:01:340:01:38

They can actually store a whole day's worth in their cheeks,

0:01:380:01:42

which is really handy because in the wild,

0:01:420:01:44

if they're searching for food in dangerous places,

0:01:440:01:47

they don't have to hang around for long. Isn't that right, guys?

0:01:470:01:51

Oh, whoa, oh, whoa, oh, whoa...

0:01:510:01:54

Rotten! I'm still hungry.

0:01:540:01:57

I don't care, you go back to work right now.

0:01:570:01:59

Shoo! Shoo!

0:01:590:02:01

In that case, I think you've had enough nuts.

0:02:010:02:05

-Oi, greedy! You've nicked all the nuts!

-See you later, monkeys.

0:02:050:02:09

-'Come in, Andy. Over.'

-There's Mr Pickles, the boss.

0:02:090:02:12

Hello, Mr Pickles. Andy here. Over.

0:02:120:02:15

'Andy, I was wondering if you could help.

0:02:150:02:18

'I was just at the cockatoo enclosure

0:02:180:02:20

'and saw that they need more nuts.

0:02:200:02:22

-'Could you bring some over? Over.'

-Yes.

0:02:220:02:25

I'm just going to go on my tea break and I'll be right over. Over.

0:02:250:02:29

'Thanks, Andy. Pickles out.'

0:02:290:02:31

-Hello, Kip.

-Oh! Hello, Andy.

0:02:440:02:48

-This looks interesting, what's this?

-This is my new invention.

0:02:480:02:52

-A perfectly portable plum picker!

-Plum picker?

0:02:520:02:57

If you squeeze the handle on the end...

0:02:570:02:59

-Ow!

-Ha! Hey presto, you can pick the plums off any tree in my garden.

0:02:590:03:04

Oh, ah! Oh...

0:03:040:03:07

I guess I need to test it first, ha-ha-ha!

0:03:070:03:10

So where have you been anyway?

0:03:100:03:13

-Well, I've been feeding some of the animals nuts. Oh.

-I love nuts too.

0:03:130:03:17

-Oh, really? What type of nut do you like?

-Ah, well, pine nuts.

0:03:170:03:22

In fact, I've got some right here. Ha-ha, yep.

0:03:220:03:26

There's nothing I like more than a delicious handful of pine nuts

0:03:260:03:30

sprinkled over a fresh fish salad.

0:03:300:03:33

Ha-ha-ha. Would you like some?

0:03:330:03:35

Er, no, thanks, Kip. But I know someone who would.

0:03:350:03:39

-Who?

-Lots of animals like pine nuts, Kip.

0:03:390:03:42

In the mountains of North America,

0:03:420:03:44

there's this bird called the Clark's Nutcracker that loves them so much

0:03:440:03:49

that it buries thousands of them in autumn,

0:03:490:03:52

just to ensure it has food for winter,

0:03:520:03:55

when the nuts stop growing.

0:03:550:03:57

KIP GASPS I'd like to see that!

0:03:570:03:59

You know what this means.

0:03:590:04:01

BOTH: Time to go on a wild adventure!

0:04:010:04:04

-We'll see the Clark's Nutcracker burying nuts!

-We can test out

0:04:040:04:08

-my perfectly portable plum picker!

-Well, come on! Let's go!

0:04:080:04:12

-One, gadget pack.

-Check.

0:04:130:04:17

Two, gizmo.

0:04:170:04:19

Check.

0:04:190:04:21

-Three, my perfectly portable plum picker. Ha-ha-ha.

-Check.

0:04:210:04:26

Just in case we need it. And, last but not least...

0:04:260:04:29

the Kipmobile!

0:04:290:04:31

Seat belts on.

0:04:310:04:33

Hit it, Kip.

0:04:350:04:36

KIPMOBILE WHIRS

0:04:440:04:46

Liftoff!

0:05:100:05:12

-Ha-ha-ha.

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

0:05:180:05:22

Where to, Andy?

0:05:220:05:25

North America, Kip.

0:05:250:05:26

That's where the whitebark pine grows,

0:05:260:05:29

and where we'll find the nutcracker! High in the mountains of Wyoming.

0:05:290:05:33

In that case, Wyoming here we come.

0:05:330:05:36

-Go cat nav, go!

-Whoa!

0:05:360:05:39

Wyyyyyyyyyyoooooomiiiiiing!

0:05:390:05:43

Oh, wow! These mountains really are stunning, Andy.

0:05:490:05:53

What are they called?

0:05:540:05:55

They're called the beautiful Beartooth Mountains.

0:05:550:05:59

Did you just say bear...

0:05:590:06:02

tooth?

0:06:020:06:03

Don't worry, they're not called that because they're full of bears

0:06:030:06:07

with scary teeth,

0:06:070:06:09

but because some of them look like the teeth of grizzly bears.

0:06:090:06:14

Oh, phew!

0:06:140:06:15

KIP SPLUTTERS

0:06:180:06:20

-Uh-oh.

-What's the matter?

0:06:210:06:23

I think there might be something wrong with the engine.

0:06:230:06:27

-Oh, dear. Well, I guess we'd better land then.

-Good idea.

0:06:270:06:31

-Oh, there's a good spot, just down there, by those deer.

-Oh, OK.

0:06:310:06:36

-Are you sure you don't want help with the engine?

-No,

0:06:450:06:48

that's all right, Andy.

0:06:480:06:50

-You go look for the whitebark pines and I'll fix the engine.

-OK, Kip.

0:06:500:06:54

-If you're sure.

-Oh, absolutely. Just be careful.

-I will.

0:06:540:06:59

Well, I think I've found the whitebark pine,

0:07:040:07:08

and those are the whitebark pine's purple cones.

0:07:080:07:13

Come on, let's take a closer look!

0:07:130:07:15

Unfortunately I don't see any nutcrackers yet.

0:07:170:07:22

But I do see something else! It's a pine squirrel.

0:07:220:07:27

In fact, there are lots of them.

0:07:270:07:29

They're trying to break the pine cones down from the trees.

0:07:290:07:33

Ha-ha, look at this little guy! He's got one in his mouth

0:07:330:07:37

and he's running off with it. Hmm.

0:07:370:07:40

I wonder where he's going. Come on, let's follow him.

0:07:400:07:45

Oh...

0:07:510:07:54

Look! The squirrel is snacking on the pine nuts.

0:07:540:07:57

Can you see? It's burying a few too,

0:07:570:08:00

saving some for winter, when there are no pine cones on the trees.

0:08:000:08:04

It's like making a store cupboard of your favourite foods.

0:08:040:08:08

-ANIMAL GRUNTS

-What was that?!

0:08:080:08:10

Look!

0:08:130:08:14

It's a grizzly bear and her cubs, sniffing around on the ground

0:08:140:08:18

looking for the pine nuts buried by this squirrel.

0:08:180:08:22

They have an incredible sense of smell,

0:08:220:08:25

so it's not going to take long.

0:08:250:08:27

And the squirrel is not happy at all.

0:08:270:08:31

Oh, look at him stomping his feet!

0:08:310:08:33

Saying that, I wouldn't be too happy either. Look!

0:08:330:08:37

The greedy grizzly's gobbling his secret store of nuts!

0:08:370:08:42

Oh, he's really not happy now!

0:08:420:08:46

-BIRD SQUAWKS

-Look! It's a Clark's Nutcracker!

0:08:460:08:51

Exactly the animal

0:08:510:08:53

I wanted to show you.

0:08:530:08:55

I've got to get a closer look.

0:08:570:08:59

Erm...

0:08:590:09:00

Ah!

0:09:000:09:02

Activate rocket pack!

0:09:020:09:03

INSECTS BUZZ

0:09:050:09:07

OK, here I go!

0:09:070:09:09

ROCKET PACK WHOOSHES

0:09:090:09:11

Right, now where has that nutcracker gone...?

0:09:150:09:18

Erm...

0:09:180:09:19

He was around here somewhere...

0:09:190:09:21

A-ha! There he is!

0:09:230:09:26

They're just like the rhesus monkeys back at the Animal Park.

0:09:260:09:30

Clark's Nutcrackers have a special pocket in their mouth

0:09:300:09:34

to store their nuts.

0:09:340:09:36

The bird isn't EATING the pine nuts.

0:09:360:09:38

It's storing them in a pocket underneath its tongue...

0:09:380:09:42

..where it can hold up to 150 pine nuts at one time!

0:09:440:09:49

Hover mode.

0:09:510:09:53

Now, what I'd love to do is to look inside these pine cones.

0:09:540:09:59

These leaves are also known as... Oh!

0:09:590:10:02

As needles!

0:10:020:10:03

And that's because they're quite sharp.

0:10:030:10:06

Hmm. How am I going to do this?

0:10:060:10:09

I've got it!

0:10:100:10:11

Kip's perfectly portable plum picker.

0:10:140:10:17

This should do the trick, ha-ha! Right, now for a proper go.

0:10:170:10:21

Er, oh... That one.

0:10:210:10:23

Look! I got it. Can you see?

0:10:250:10:27

If you look closely, you can see the pine nuts,

0:10:270:10:31

just like the ones Kip likes to put on her salads. Brilliant!

0:10:310:10:35

Oh, look! There goes the nutcracker, flying off

0:10:350:10:39

to bury the pine nuts she put in her pocket.

0:10:390:10:41

I'm going to do the same.

0:10:410:10:44

ROCKET PACK WHOOSHES

0:10:470:10:49

Er, grr...

0:10:490:10:51

Open the packet...

0:10:510:10:53

KIP COUGHS

0:10:530:10:56

Hey, Kip!

0:10:560:10:58

Hey, Andy. Are you there? Is everything all right?

0:11:050:11:09

Yes, everything is great, Kip.

0:11:090:11:12

I've just followed the nutcracker for miles and miles.

0:11:120:11:15

And look, here she is. She's been carrying pine nuts in her throat

0:11:150:11:19

and she's burying the nuts so she can eat them in wintertime.

0:11:190:11:24

So she remembers where they are, she covers the spot with a stone.

0:11:240:11:29

In just one autumn, a bird can bury thousands and thousands

0:11:290:11:33

and thousands of nuts, and still remember where most of them are.

0:11:330:11:38

And the nuts they don't remember?

0:11:380:11:40

They might grow into whitebark pines.

0:11:400:11:43

So, whitebark pine trees need nutcrackers to spread their seeds.

0:11:440:11:49

Oh, off she goes! Off to go and get some more pine nuts.

0:11:500:11:54

What an amazing memory!

0:11:540:11:56

Right, time for me to go.

0:11:580:11:59

Hmm. Well, that nutcracker has a much better memory than I have.

0:12:030:12:08

I can't remember where I flew in from.

0:12:080:12:11

I think it's time to call Kip.

0:12:110:12:13

Kip?

0:12:130:12:14

Kip, are you there?

0:12:140:12:16

Kip?!

0:12:170:12:18

It's all right, Andy. I'm coming!

0:12:180:12:21

-Nice one, Kip.

-Andy, upload!

0:12:230:12:27

See you later, nutcracker! Wherever you are.

0:12:270:12:30

Whoa, oh.

0:12:310:12:33

Ah, thanks, Kip. I thought I'd be lost forever then.

0:12:330:12:37

Oh, not with me around, Andy.

0:12:370:12:39

By the way, your perfectly portable plum picker was perfect

0:12:390:12:43

for picking pine cones.

0:12:430:12:45

Oh, great. Ha!

0:12:450:12:47

Well, in that case, let's head home. Ha-ha!

0:12:470:12:50

Right...

0:13:140:13:16

'Come in, Andy. Andy, are you receiving? Over.'

0:13:160:13:20

Uh-oh, it's Mr Pickles!

0:13:200:13:22

Hello, Mr Pickles.

0:13:220:13:24

Andy here, receiving loud and clear. Over.

0:13:240:13:27

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

0:13:270:13:32

Well, you see, sir...

0:13:320:13:34

-I've been collecting pine nuts for the cockatoos. Over.

-Ha-ha.

0:13:340:13:40

-'Oh, that's smashing. Pickles out.'

-Ah. See you soon!

Andy and Kip embark on another wild adventure to North America in search of the animals that live among whitebark pine trees.

After seeing a squirrel and catching a glimpse of a bear, Andy flies with a bird called the Clark's nutcracker, watching as it picks a pine nut and then busily buries it in readiness for the winter. Amazingly, the Clark's nutcracker can bury thousands of pine nuts in this way and remember where they all are.
