Hi, I'm Andy and I work here at Pickles Animal Park
and it's my job to look after the animals.
I'm visiting the climbing animals at the moment,
to make sure everything is secure.
These are marmoset monkeys.
They're very good climbers, and they have to be,
because most of their food is in the trees, like leaves.
Right, let's make sure the rope is secure. Excuse me, Mickey.
How's that for you?
Yeah, well, bit ropey! Thanks, Andy. Cheers!
Good, glad to hear it!
Right, guys. Chew your food nicely and no monkeying around.
See you, Andy! Who said that?
Come on, guys!
Coatis are very active during the day
and these brown-nosed coatis,
they love climbing around on the ropes, don't you, Carlos?
Yes we do, Andy, and we use our tails
to help us balance on the ropes! Pretty cool, huh?
Very cool, Carlos. Happy climbing, guys!
-Andy? Are you there, Andy? Over.
Hello, Mr Pickles! Andy here. Over.
Hello, Andy. I was just passing the tarantulas
and noticed they'd run out of tree bark.
Do you think you could find some more? Over.
No problem, Sir. I'm just going to go on my tea break
and then I'll bring the bark straight over. Over!
Good lad. Pickles out!
Ah, hello, Kip!
Oh, hi, Andy.
What on earth are these?
These, Andy, are my latest invention.
My super-safe suction shoes.
You just put them on your feet and you can climb up almost anything!
Ah, sounds like a great idea!
I still need to test them out, though.
I thought they might be useful when you have to climb up
on the giraffe's shelter to fix the roof.
Ah, thanks, Kip.
So, where have you been, anyway?
Well, funny you should mention climbing
because I've just been to see the climbing animals at the park.
-You know, to see if they're safe.
-Oh. Why do animals climb, Andy?
Well, Kip, some animals climb to find their favourite foods.
Really? What kind of food?
Er, mainly insects and leaves, really.
There's one animal in particular that climbs trees
to find one of your favourite foods.
Fish and chips?
No, Kip. Honey.
Some bears actually climb up high into the trees to find honey.
Bears can climb trees?
Oh, yes. There's a particular type of bear called a black bear.
They're so good at climbing,
their cubs run up the trees as fast as you can run up the stairs.
-The black bears live
in the beautiful green forests of North America
and spend most of their days climbing huge trees in forests.
Wow! Oh, I'd love to see that!
-You know what this sounds like, Kip?
BOTH: Time to go on a wild adventure!
We get to see black bears climbing trees!
And test out my super-safe suction shoes!
What are we waiting for? Let's do it!
-One, gadget pack.
-Three, my super-safe suction shoes!
Just in case we need them!
And, last but not least, the Kipmobile!
Seat belts on.
Hit it, Kip!
We're in space!
So, where to, Andy?
The Great Lakes of North America.
That's where black bears live in the forest.
Then the Great Lakes it is! Go, cat-nav, go!
Oh, wow! This is beautiful!
-All that water!
-All those fish!
Perfect landing, Kip. All do is find some black bears
and watch them climb.
And how do we do that?
By following her!
Who? I don't see anyone.
Her, right there!
-Don't worry, it won't sting you.
Well, unless you make it angry.
Nice bee. Nice bee!
Yes, and hopefully she'll lead us back to its nest
and we'll find those black bears.
Well, there's one thing bees make that black bears love to eat.
Bees and bears together in the same place?
Actually, you know what?
Why don't you go with the bee,
while I stay here and look after the Kipmobile?
OK, if you're sure.
I'm sure, all right! But, Andy?
See? Get it?
Very good, Kip. OK, I'll see you later.
Oh! Here we are. I followed the bee all the way to its nest
in this hollow log down here!
Look at all those busy bees,
putting the honey into the honeycomb
so they can feed it to their little baby bees.
But it's not just little bees that like eating honey.
Little black bears love eating it too.
Although they mainly eat plants,
their favourite food is sweet and yummy runny honey!
Erm, I'd be careful there, little bear!
The bees aren't going to be too happy if you take their honey.
And you don't want to get stung, now!
He got stung! Oh, no! And all the bees are getting really upset!
Oh, hang on, wait for me! I want to see how you climb a tree!
Come on! Sorry!
Time for a quick snack, I think.
A delicious honey sandwich.
Did I say honey sandwich?
I meant smelly old rotten egg sandwich!
It's a mummy black bear and her cubs!
Oh, she's feeding them some milk and giving them plenty of attention.
Wow! Let's stay here for a while.
It's not every day you see something as special as this!
Oh, look! There are some more coming.
Oh, there goes the mum.
She'll probably have to go and get some food for herself, now.
It's just me and the cubs.
Hey, maybe we'll get the chance to see them...to see them climb a...
No, please, please, don't go!
It was just a sneeze!
Well, I did say I wanted to see them climb.
Oh, if only I could get up there!
Hang on a minute.
A-ha! Kip's super-safe suction shoes! These'll do it!
Whoa, it's a long way up!
but it's so worth it because now we get to see
what the little black bears get up to!
How are you doing, buddy?
Hey, how's it going up there, little one?
These guys up here are so relaxed, they're about to fall asleep!
Hey, where's everyone going?
Wait for me!
Oh, look! It's the dad bear.
Oh, he doesn't look too happy.
And he's coming this way!
I don't think he was too pleased that I was playing with his cubs!
Hi! All right?
I think I'll just hold onto this tree, where it's nice and safe.
Whoops! Oh, no!
Ha-ha, hiya! Ooh!
-Oh, well done, Kip. I knew I could count on you.
See you later, black bears!
-Perfect timing, Kip.
-Oh, thanks, Andy. That's what I'm here for!
And those super-safe suction shoes, they worked brilliantly.
-Oh, well, in that case, let's head home!
Are you receiving, Andy? Over.
It's Mr Pickles!
Hello, Mr Pickles. Andy receiving loud and clear. Over.
Where have you been, Andy? I've been trying to get hold of you! Over.
Erm, I've just been, erm, I've just been to the...
I've just been to collect some more bark for the tarantulas! Over.
Super, Andy. Just what we need. Pickles out!
See you next time!
