Hello, I'm Andy and I work here at Pickles' Animal Park.
At the moment, lots of the animals are having babies,
so I'm just checking to see if they're all right.
Did you hear that? Sounds like a dog, doesn't it? In a way, it is.
They're called prairie dogs.
In the wild, these cute little creatures live in North America.
They dig really long tunnels with lots of different rooms in them.
They've also got a nursery for their young, a bit like us, really.
-Everything all right there, guys?
-Yes, everything's fine and dandy!
Good, glad to hear it.
Now that we know that the prairie dogs are OK, I've come here
to check these guys out. They're called pelicans.
They have a very different way of nesting.
Instead of digging tunnels and building nurseries,
they build their nests out of piles of twigs
which they carry in their mouth, and boy, what a mouth!
I love fish!
Right, I think you've had enough now, Patricia. I'm off.
See you soon.
-'Come in, Andy.'
Hello, Mr Pickles. Andy receiving loud and clear, over.
'I've just visited the warthog area
'and some of them don't have enough mud to roll in.
'You know how much they love their mud.
'Could you mix some up for them when you've got a moment? Over.'
No problem, Mr Pickles. I'm on my tea break at the moment,
but I'll get straight to it afterwards, over.
-Right, I wonder what Kip's up to.
-Thinking about going surfing, are we?
What? Oh, this. No, this isn't a surfboard, Andy.
This is my latest fantastic invention.
My marvellously motorised mini mud skipper.
You just press the button on the back and off it goes.
It looks amazing, Kip. What's it used for?
Oh, it's for gardening on wet days, so I can get around
my vegetable patch without getting my paws too dirty.
Now all I need to do is test it. What have you been doing, Andy?
-I've just been to see the pelicans and the prairie dogs, Kip.
Just to make sure that everything's OK for when they have their young.
Dogs, in here? Where?
No, Kip. Not real dogs, prairie dogs.
They're called dogs because, well, they make the same sound, like this.
Oh, well, that sounds quite cute, actually.
To keep their babies safe, they build these huge tunnels
under the ground with lots and lots of rooms.
It's like a big maze,
but they're not the only animals
that want to keep their babies as safe as possible.
There are penguins that lay their eggs on cliff-tops.
There are turtles that lay their eggs under the ground,
and there's this one animal, the pink flamingo.
It has a pink body and long, thin legs,
and to keep its chicks safe from harm, it lays its eggs
in the middle of a big, muddy lake,
to make sure that no animals can get to them.
Wow! I'd love to see that.
You know what this sounds like, don't you, Kip?
BOTH: Time to go on a wild adventure!
We get to see flamingos on their nests.
And we can test my marvellously motorised mini mud skipper!
What are we waiting for, Kip? Let's go!
-One, gadget pack.
Three, my marvellously motorised mini mud skipper. Just in case we need it.
-And last but not least, the Kipmobile!
Hit it, Kip.
-Woo-hoo-hoo! We're in space!
-Ha-ha. Where to, Andy?
-Kenya in Africa.
-The flamingos live on the lakes there.
-Well, Kenya it is.
Go, cat nav, go!
I can't wait until we find the... flamingos!
Well, not long now.
-No, Kip, there they are. Just below us.
-Wow, there's so many of them.
That's nothing. Wait until you see where they're going.
Andy, what's that?
It looks like someone's spilled a load of pink custard in the water.
That's not pink custard, Kip!
That's more than a million flamingos, all pink
and all gathering in the shallow waters of that lake down there.
Come on, let's land.
Hmm, they're surprisingly big, aren't they?
Not that I'm scared or anything.
I just think maybe I should stay here, just in case.
Just in case...the Kipmobile starts to sink in the mud.
Besides, they don't look too happy to me.
That's just the shape of their beak, Kip.
They need it that shape to eat the tiny shrimps that live in the water.
Look, there's one doing it now.
It's using its beak like a sieve to get the pink shrimps
out of the water, and that's what makes the feathers turn pink.
The pinker they are, the prettier they are to the other flamingos.
But that's not the only way to get the other flamingos to like them.
Why, what else do they do?
They dance, Kip!
Size of a flamingo.
Perfect. Now it's time for a little bird ballet.
By lifting their heads and ruffling their feathers,
they're trying to be as tall and as pink as they possibly can,
which is exactly what the other flamingos
are looking for in a partner.
Hello. Looking very pretty there.
-Thank you, thank you very much.
-That was amazing, Andy.
-Ah, well, thanks, Kip.
Can we have a look at their nests now?
We sure can, but first, I need to find some mud.
OK, while you do that
I've got something very important to get on with.
OK, then, Kip. Speak soon.
Pink custard. My favourite!
Perfect. Lots and lots of mud.
While most animals would sink in the mud,
flamingos have these long, thin legs like stilts,
which are great for getting through the thick mud.
See? But they don't come here to play in the mud.
They come here to build their nests in the mud. Hey, Kip.
Guess what - I've found the flamingos' nests.
Take a look at this.
-Wow, it looks like they're sitting on mini mountains.
-It does, doesn't it?
The reason why they build them like that is because this whole area
sometimes gets flooded and they need to keep their eggs safe.
I'd love to get a closer look,
but I don't really want to get stuck in all that yucky mud.
Still, I guess that's why they build the nests here,
because the other animals don't want to get stuck in the mud either.
-Aren't you forgetting something, Andy?
My marvellously motorised mini mud skipper, of course!
Of course! Well done, Kip! Right.
I don't want to scare the birds in their nests,
so I'm going to shrink myself down.
Even smaller. Size of a baby flamingo.
Brilliant! Right, now to get across this mud.
This is brilliant! Yeah!
Ooh, whoa! Ooh, ah!
Oh, wow, look! She's just hatched. And can you see?
She's still white and not pink.
That's because she hasn't eaten any pink shrimp yet.
Uh-oh. This isn't good. I'm stuck in the mud! Oh, no.
Kip! Kip, hello? I'm going to need your help now.
-OK! Andy, upload.
-See you later, flamingos. Wherever you are.
-Thanks, Kip. Got a bit stuck in the mud for a second there.
-So I see.
-Now, just don't get it on the seat, yeah?
-OK, I'll try, I'll try.
Oh, there's my hat. Ah, there's the gadget pack.
Hang on a minute, where's the mud skipper?
Over here. There we go. Tell you what, Kip. This worked a real treat.
Good. Then let's head home.
-'Come in, Andy. Andy, come in.'
It's Mr Pickles. No.
Hello, Mr Pickles. Andy here, over.
'Where have you been, Andy?
'I've been trying to get hold of you, over.'
I've just been collecting some mud for the warthogs, over.
'Superb, just what we need. Pickles out.'
See you next time. Right, where's Kip?
