-Hi, Jake, are you comfortable?
Hello, I'm Andy and I work at Pickles' Animal Park
and it's my job to look after the animals.
Lots of the birds are making their nests
so I'm going to go find out if they need anything.
Right, here we go, Jake. Come on, let's go.
Bwarrk! Still comfy!
I've come to see these beautiful birds
to check that they're nesting OK.
They're called sacred ibis and they're from North Africa.
In the wild, they build their nests
really high up to keep their eggs safe.
As you can see, I've helped them by building a platform for them.
They've got really long beaks that they use
to search in the mud for their favourite food -
juicy worms. Everything all right up there, ladies?
My Harry could build a nest with his eyes closed. Yes, we're fine, Andy.
Good, I'll check on you later.
-'Come in, Andy. Andy? Come in?'
Oh, hello, Mr Pickles, Andy here receiving loud and clear, over.
'Ah, Andy, I've just visited the crowned crane
'and her nest is looking a bit bare.
'Could you get her some leaves to make it more comfortable? Over.'
No problem, Mr Pickles, I'll just take my tea break
and then I'll bring the leaves straight over. Over.
'Ah, marvellous. Pickles out.'
-Ah, hello, Kip.
-Oh, hi, Andy.
-Oh, making a rope ladder are we?
Oh, this isn't any old rope ladder,
this is my latest brilliant invention -
a really rapid reversing rope ladder.
Wow, a really rapid reversing rope ladder! That sounds brilliant.
What does it do, then?
-So, you know how most rope ladders roll downwards?
-Well, my rope ladder rolls upwards.
-How cool is that?!
Now I can climb trees without getting my paws dirty.
-Brilliant, Kip, you're a genius.
Now, all I have to do is test it. So what have you been doing, Andy?
I've been to the sacred ibis to check the nests are OK.
Oh, is it only birds that make nests, Andy?
No, Kip, all sorts of animals make nests.
You've got bees, spiders, squirrels...
In fact, there's one nest builder that's even bigger than me.
-Bigger than you?
high up in the beautiful green hills of Uganda in East Africa
there are some amazing mountain gorillas.
The babies have to climb up
to the tops of the trees to build their big, leafy nests.
It's like sleeping on the top bunk
and being able to look up at the sky all at the same time.
Sounds like those mountain gorillas
-could use my rapid reversing rope ladder!
-Know what this sounds like?
BOTH: Time to go on a wild adventure!
We can watch mountain gorillas make nests.
And we get to test out my reversing rope ladder!
BOTH: Let's do it!
-One - gadget pack.
-Two - gizmo.
Three - really rapid reversing rope ladder.
-Just in case we need it.
And last but not least - the Kipmobile!
Hit it, Kip!
-Woo-hoo-hoo! We're in space!
-So where to, Andy?
That's where the mountain gorillas live,
right in the heart of Africa. Let's go there.
-Then Uganda here we come! Go, Cat Nav, go! Yeah!
Wow, here we are, Andy.
The mountains of Uganda.
Oh, and what's more, Kip,
I've spotted some mountain gorillas right below us!
Come on, let's land.
-Oh, look, Kip, aren't they amazing?
They're amazing all right, and they're also very big.
What on earth do they eat?
Leaves, mainly. That's why they're headed to the forest.
Come on, let's follow them
-and maybe we'll get to see them build their nests.
I think I might just stay here and look after the Kipmobile.
It's not that I'm afraid or anything but, well, er...
it looks like it might rain and I forgot to bring my raincoat.
Uh, Kip? Clear blue skies.
Yes, but it looks like rain to me and we cats hate rain.
-All right, well, I'll see you later, then. Bye.
Where have they gone?
-Did you hear that?
I think there must be some gorillas ahead.
It's good gorilla manners to grunt when you're close
to let them know that you're coming.
Come on. Hoo. Hoo hoo-hoo! Hoo hoo-hoo.
Wow! Here they are! (I'll whisper so that I don't startle them.)
Gorillas love being with other gorillas.
And one way of showing that love is by doing this -
getting rid of the bugs in their fur.
That's right. Take it easy there, big fella. Just relax.
Gorillas are really playful too.
The young ones like nothing more than to wrestle each other.
Oh, look! It's a baby!
And by the looks of it, it's only a few days old.
I could spend all day with these gorillas but I'll show you
how they make nests. Come on. See ya!
The forest can be so full of plants
that it can be really difficult for us to walk through.
But the more plants there are, the happier they are,
because plants are what they eat - especially bamboo.
Isn't that right, big guy? Cheers!
Ooh, don't mind me.
Andy was right.
There's no sign of rain but there are plenty of gorillas.
No leaves here, gorillas. Go that way.
No leaves. The trees are there. Yeah. Ha-ha! Over there. Ha!
Adult gorillas are too big to climb small trees
but it doesn't mean that they can't teach the young ones to do it.
Look at that one over there.
Aw, he doesn't have his dad to help him so he's practising on his own.
Go on, buddy! You can do t!
Oops! Oh... Are you all right?
That's it! Don't give up! And try not to get too dizzy there either.
Ooof! Gorillas climb trees to get the freshest,
most delicious leaves that they can, all the way up at the top.
But they also climb trees to build nests. Oh...
And I think I can see one in the distance.
Come on, let's go.
Finally, I've made it!
Oh... Ah. Ha-ha. Look!
-KIP ON RADIO:
How's it going? Is everything all right?
Hi, Kip. Everything is great.
I've finally found what I was looking for -
a gorilla climbing to the top of a tree to build a nest.
Take a look. The only problem is,
how will I get up there?
Oh, I know! Use my really rapid reversing rope ladder! Ha!
Good idea, Kip. That's exactly what I'll do. Nice one.
CLUNKING AND FIZZING
Phew! Oh... Wow!
This is amazing!
This little guy builds a new nest every night,
making sure that he has plenty of room so that he doesn't roll out.
Each young gorilla makes its own nest. Look how many there are.
It's like sleeping in a bed made of your favourite food!
He just looks up at the stars, relaxes and falls to sleep.
Oh, no! I know I said wanted to hang out with the gorillas
but I didn't mean really hang out.
Kip! Kip, are you there? Kip?
Oh, Kip, well done. I knew I could count on you. Phew.
-Great timing, Kip.
That's what I'm here for.
I think I've had enough of being upside down for one day.
Hold tight, Andy. Let's head home. Ha!
RADIO: 'Come in, Andy. Are you receiving? Over.'
Uh-oh, that'll be the boss.
Mr Pickles. Andy here. Receiving loud and clear. Over.
'Where have you been? I've been trying to get you. Over.'
Um, I've just been getting some... er...
I've just been getting some...
I've been getting leaves for the crowned crane. Over.
'Ah, marvellous. Just what we need. Pickles out.'
We'll see you next time.
