0:00:270:00:34

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

0:00:390:00:44

At the moment, lots of the animals are having babies,

0:00:440:00:47

so I'm just checking to see if they're all right.

0:00:470:00:49

HIGHPITCHED BARKING

0:00:490:00:51

Did you hear that? Sounds like a dog, doesn't it? In a way, it is.

0:00:510:00:55

They're called prairie dogs.

0:00:550:00:57

In the wild, these cute little creatures live in North America.

0:00:570:01:03

They dig really long tunnels with lots of different rooms in them.

0:01:030:01:07

They've also got a nursery for their young, a bit like us, really.

0:01:070:01:10

-Everything all right there, guys?

-Yes, everything's fine and dandy!

0:01:100:01:15

Good, glad to hear it.

0:01:150:01:17

Now that we know that the prairie dogs are OK, I've come here

0:01:250:01:28

to check these guys out. They're called pelicans.

0:01:280:01:32

They have a very different way of nesting.

0:01:320:01:34

Instead of digging tunnels and building nurseries,

0:01:340:01:38

they build their nests out of piles of twigs

0:01:380:01:41

which they carry in their mouth, and boy, what a mouth!

0:01:410:01:45

I love fish!

0:01:450:01:47

Right, I think you've had enough now, Patricia. I'm off.

0:01:470:01:50

See you soon.

0:01:500:01:51

-RADIO:

-'Come in, Andy.'

0:02:050:02:07

Hello, Mr Pickles. Andy receiving loud and clear, over.

0:02:070:02:11

'Hello, Andy.

0:02:110:02:12

'I've just visited the warthog area

0:02:120:02:15

'and some of them don't have enough mud to roll in.

0:02:150:02:18

'You know how much they love their mud.

0:02:180:02:20

'Could you mix some up for them when you've got a moment? Over.'

0:02:200:02:23

No problem, Mr Pickles. I'm on my tea break at the moment,

0:02:230:02:27

but I'll get straight to it afterwards, over.

0:02:270:02:30

-'Pickles out.'

-Right, I wonder what Kip's up to.

0:02:300:02:36

-Hello, Kip.

-Hi, Andy.

-Thinking about going surfing, are we?

0:02:370:02:42

What? Oh, this. No, this isn't a surfboard, Andy.

0:02:420:02:46

This is my latest fantastic invention.

0:02:460:02:50

My marvellously motorised mini mud skipper.

0:02:500:02:54

You just press the button on the back and off it goes.

0:02:540:02:56

It looks amazing, Kip. What's it used for?

0:02:560:03:01

Oh, it's for gardening on wet days, so I can get around

0:03:010:03:04

my vegetable patch without getting my paws too dirty.

0:03:040:03:07

Now all I need to do is test it. What have you been doing, Andy?

0:03:070:03:13

-I've just been to see the pelicans and the prairie dogs, Kip.

-Dogs?

0:03:130:03:17

Just to make sure that everything's OK for when they have their young.

0:03:170:03:20

Dogs, in here? Where?

0:03:200:03:23

No, Kip. Not real dogs, prairie dogs.

0:03:230:03:26

They're called dogs because, well, they make the same sound, like this.

0:03:260:03:31

HIGH-PITCHED BARKING

0:03:310:03:34

Oh, well, that sounds quite cute, actually.

0:03:340:03:36

To keep their babies safe, they build these huge tunnels

0:03:360:03:40

under the ground with lots and lots of rooms.

0:03:400:03:42

It's like a big maze,

0:03:420:03:43

but they're not the only animals

0:03:430:03:45

that want to keep their babies as safe as possible.

0:03:450:03:48

There are penguins that lay their eggs on cliff-tops.

0:03:480:03:52

There are turtles that lay their eggs under the ground,

0:03:520:03:55

and there's this one animal, the pink flamingo.

0:03:550:03:59

It has a pink body and long, thin legs,

0:03:590:04:02

and to keep its chicks safe from harm, it lays its eggs

0:04:020:04:07

in the middle of a big, muddy lake,

0:04:070:04:09

to make sure that no animals can get to them.

0:04:090:04:13

Wow! I'd love to see that.

0:04:130:04:15

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

0:04:150:04:18

BOTH: Time to go on a wild adventure!

0:04:180:04:20

We get to see flamingos on their nests.

0:04:200:04:24

And we can test my marvellously motorised mini mud skipper!

0:04:240:04:27

What are we waiting for, Kip? Let's go!

0:04:270:04:30

-One, gadget pack.

-Check.

-Two, gizmo.

-Check.

0:04:320:04:39

Three, my marvellously motorised mini mud skipper. Just in case we need it.

0:04:390:04:46

Check.

0:04:460:04:47

-And last but not least, the Kipmobile!

-Seatbelts on.

0:04:490:04:54

Hit it, Kip.

0:04:560:04:58

Lift-off!

0:05:390:05:41

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

-Ha-ha. Where to, Andy?

-Kenya in Africa.

0:05:490:05:56

-The flamingos live on the lakes there.

-Well, Kenya it is.

0:05:560:05:59

Go, cat nav, go!

0:05:590:06:02

I can't wait until we find the... flamingos!

0:06:160:06:21

Well, not long now.

0:06:210:06:23

-No, Kip, there they are. Just below us.

-Wow, there's so many of them.

0:06:230:06:30

That's nothing. Wait until you see where they're going.

0:06:300:06:34

Andy, what's that?

0:06:340:06:37

It looks like someone's spilled a load of pink custard in the water.

0:06:370:06:41

That's not pink custard, Kip!

0:06:410:06:43

That's more than a million flamingos, all pink

0:06:430:06:46

and all gathering in the shallow waters of that lake down there.

0:06:460:06:50

Come on, let's land.

0:06:500:06:51

Hmm, they're surprisingly big, aren't they?

0:07:000:07:03

Not that I'm scared or anything.

0:07:030:07:06

I just think maybe I should stay here, just in case.

0:07:060:07:10

Just in case...the Kipmobile starts to sink in the mud.

0:07:110:07:15

Besides, they don't look too happy to me.

0:07:150:07:17

That's just the shape of their beak, Kip.

0:07:170:07:21

They need it that shape to eat the tiny shrimps that live in the water.

0:07:210:07:24

Look, there's one doing it now.

0:07:240:07:26

It's using its beak like a sieve to get the pink shrimps

0:07:260:07:29

out of the water, and that's what makes the feathers turn pink.

0:07:290:07:32

The pinker they are, the prettier they are to the other flamingos.

0:07:320:07:36

But that's not the only way to get the other flamingos to like them.

0:07:360:07:39

Why, what else do they do?

0:07:390:07:42

They dance, Kip!

0:07:420:07:44

Size of a flamingo.

0:07:460:07:48

Perfect. Now it's time for a little bird ballet.

0:07:540:08:00

By lifting their heads and ruffling their feathers,

0:08:010:08:05

they're trying to be as tall and as pink as they possibly can,

0:08:050:08:09

which is exactly what the other flamingos

0:08:090:08:12

are looking for in a partner.

0:08:120:08:14

Hello. Looking very pretty there.

0:08:160:08:19

KIP LAUGHS

0:08:330:08:34

KIP LAUGHS

0:08:390:08:42

Yay! Yay!

0:08:460:08:49

-CHEERING

-Thank you, thank you very much.

0:08:490:08:51

Thank you.

0:08:510:08:52

-That was amazing, Andy.

-Ah, well, thanks, Kip.

0:08:520:08:58

Can we have a look at their nests now?

0:08:580:09:00

We sure can, but first, I need to find some mud.

0:09:000:09:05

OK, while you do that

0:09:050:09:06

I've got something very important to get on with.

0:09:060:09:10

OK, then, Kip. Speak soon.

0:09:100:09:13

Pink custard. My favourite!

0:09:150:09:19

Perfect. Lots and lots of mud.

0:09:260:09:28

While most animals would sink in the mud,

0:09:340:09:39

flamingos have these long, thin legs like stilts,

0:09:390:09:42

which are great for getting through the thick mud.

0:09:420:09:46

See? But they don't come here to play in the mud.

0:09:460:09:49

They come here to build their nests in the mud. Hey, Kip.

0:09:490:09:55

Guess what - I've found the flamingos' nests.

0:09:550:09:57

Take a look at this.

0:09:570:10:00

-Wow, it looks like they're sitting on mini mountains.

-It does, doesn't it?

0:10:000:10:05

The reason why they build them like that is because this whole area

0:10:050:10:08

sometimes gets flooded and they need to keep their eggs safe.

0:10:080:10:13

I'd love to get a closer look,

0:10:130:10:15

but I don't really want to get stuck in all that yucky mud.

0:10:150:10:19

Still, I guess that's why they build the nests here,

0:10:190:10:21

because the other animals don't want to get stuck in the mud either.

0:10:210:10:25

-Aren't you forgetting something, Andy?

-What's that?

0:10:250:10:30

My marvellously motorised mini mud skipper, of course!

0:10:300:10:34

Of course! Well done, Kip! Right.

0:10:340:10:39

I don't want to scare the birds in their nests,

0:10:490:10:52

so I'm going to shrink myself down.

0:10:520:10:55

Even smaller. Size of a baby flamingo.

0:10:550:10:59

Brilliant! Right, now to get across this mud.

0:11:050:11:08

Whoa-ho-ho!

0:11:090:11:11

Yay!

0:11:200:11:22

This is brilliant! Yeah!

0:11:230:11:29

Ooh, whoa! Ooh, ah!

0:11:360:11:41

Oh, wow, look! She's just hatched. And can you see?

0:11:410:11:47

She's still white and not pink.

0:11:470:11:49

That's because she hasn't eaten any pink shrimp yet.

0:11:490:11:52

Oh, excellent.

0:11:520:11:55

Ooh! Aaah!

0:11:550:11:57

SPLAT!

0:11:570:11:59

Uh-oh. This isn't good. I'm stuck in the mud! Oh, no.

0:12:000:12:07

Kip! Kip, hello? I'm going to need your help now.

0:12:100:12:17

Kip! Kip!

0:12:170:12:19

COMPUTER BEEPS

0:12:190:12:21

-OK! Andy, upload.

-See you later, flamingos. Wherever you are.

0:12:210:12:27

Ah!

0:12:320:12:33

-Thanks, Kip. Got a bit stuck in the mud for a second there.

-So I see.

0:12:330:12:38

-Now, just don't get it on the seat, yeah?

-OK, I'll try, I'll try.

0:12:380:12:44

Oh, there's my hat. Ah, there's the gadget pack.

0:12:440:12:48

Hang on a minute, where's the mud skipper?

0:12:480:12:51

HE WHISTLES

0:12:510:12:52

Over here. There we go. Tell you what, Kip. This worked a real treat.

0:12:560:13:00

Good. Then let's head home.

0:13:000:13:04

-RADIO:

-'Come in, Andy. Andy, come in.'

0:13:140:13:18

It's Mr Pickles. No.

0:13:180:13:21

Hello, Mr Pickles. Andy here, over.

0:13:230:13:26

'Where have you been, Andy?

0:13:260:13:28

'I've been trying to get hold of you, over.'

0:13:280:13:31

Well...

0:13:310:13:34

I've just been collecting some mud for the warthogs, over.

0:13:340:13:39

'Superb, just what we need. Pickles out.'

0:13:390:13:42

See you next time. Right, where's Kip?

0:13:420:13:46
