Hola, mis amigos!
Bienvenidos a Barney's America Latina.
Arriva, arriva! It's show time.
Let me introduce you to a carnival of creatures,
from fabulously freaky frogs to hollering howler monkeys
to manic meat-eating plants. Es magnifico!
They are all connected to each other
in this wonderful world of wildlife by funny,
fabulous and fantastic facts.
-Get on with it!
-Oh, sorry. Tres, dos, uno...
Es la hora de Barney's Latin America.
Roll up, roll up, come and try my very special lucky dip.
-Oh, how much?
-500 Costa Rican colones.
Gracias, danke schon, por favor, hola.
Eugh! It is full of slime.
I told you it was special. What have you got?
A gooey, smelly sock. Hang on a second.
I thought you were supposed to get nice things from a lucky dip.
No, this one is different. Have another go.
What is this? A soggy loo roll?
Well, that links very nicely today's theme. Stinky, pooey, gooey.
You can't call a programme that.
You can. In Latin America, the animals and plants
do stinkiness, gooiness and pooiness just to survive.
Like the maned wolf's unique smelly perfume.
The stomach-churning meal times of these birds.
And the marine iguana, which snots out salt.
In fact, I think you might be needing that.
That is your slime protection suit.
I don't need a slime protection suit. I am not afraid of a bit of slime.
OK, don't say I didn't warn you.
Hold onto your stomachs. It is stinky, pooey, gooey.
And first up, some lovely poo.
That's disgusting. The only place for that is down the toilet.
That's where you're wrong.
Many animals can put this pile of poo to good use.
I smell something!
The dung beetle, for example.
This little creature lives and breathes the stuff.
Smells like poo. Found any poo today?
No, but I smell some somewhere!
Race you! Last one there smells like rose petals!
The beetles have an excellent sense of smell.
They can sniff out a fresh pile of poo in minutes.
I know it is round here somewhere. I can smell it a mile off.
The beetles break pieces off the dung and roll it into a ball,
then they dribble it all the way back to their nest.
It's like a game of dung football.
That beetle is called Wayne Pooney. He's a legend.
-Where's he off to now?
-He's rolling the ball back to his nest,
-where he will bury it until he's hungry.
-Until he's hungry?
-hat? He doesn't actually eat it?
That is so disgusting.
The dung is full of goodness that the monkey couldn't digest.
Baby beetles eat the solid part,
and the adult beetles suck up the liquid.
They don't need to eat or drink anything else -
because the dung provides all the nutrients the beetles need.
Wow! I can't believe they live off poo. That's amazing.
The dung beetle can bury up to 250 times
its own weight of dung in one night.
That's like me burying two massive double-decker buses. Awesome!
See? You are getting into the spirit of things now, aren't you?
Do you reckon you can find an animal
as stinky and pooey as my dung beetle?
All right, you're on.
I reckon I can beat the dung beetle and its disgusting habits
with our next creature, the capybara.
Right, girls, in you get. Everyone in the mud.
Do I have to? I had a bath yesterday.
Wow, it looks like a giant guinea pig.
Yes, the capybara is the big cousin of the guinea pig.
So big, you wouldn't want this animal as a pet.
In fact, capybaras are the largest rodents in the world.
Did you hear that?
Largest rodents in the world.
We're great, us, aren't we?
After a nice mud Jacuzzi, the capybara have worked up an appetite.
Oh, I love a bit of grass.
Their name actually means master of the grasses,
because they eat so much of the stuff.
Hang on. I thought you said these animals had a disgusting habit.
I can think of far worse things to eat than grass.
Well, giant anteaters eat squirmy termites.
Coatis eat raw eggs,
and we have just seen the dung beetles eating poo.
-What could be worse than that?
-How about eating your own poo?
Surely, the capybara, this cute, oversized guinea pig,
doesn't eat its own poo?
I don't know what the problem is. It's grass.
But, yes, it is true,
I like a little chew on the poo now and again.
Capybaras have trouble digesting their food,
and need a second opportunity
to get all the goodness out. So they eat their own poo.
Well, I hope he cleans his teeth well.
So, the capybara is linked to the dung beetle,
because they both eat poo.
Now, obviously, eating poo is pretty bad.
-But some animals prefer it more than that.
-What do you mean?
-Well, instead of living in nests or borrows, they live on poo.
Or not nice. You know what I mean.
Take the sloth moth, for example.
While the sloth is minding its own business up in the tree,
the little critters burrow into his thick fur
to hide from predators and hitch a ride.
-All aboard the bus, please.
-Got room for another little one?
Then once a week,
the sloth climbs down to do a poop on the ground.
Seems like I've only just had a poo.
He takes his passengers with him.
Hold on tight at the back.
I bet the moths have to hold their noses.
This is what they have been waiting for.
The moths take this as their cue to jump off the sloth into the poo,
where the female moth lays her eggs.
Ooh, look at that lovely poo. I have to have it!
Leave it alone, it's mine!
So the baby moths are born in a cradle of poo?
Yeah, but it's ideal.
The nutrients in the poop provide the perfect start
to life for these moth babies.
And the adults quite like it, too.
Not my idea of a balanced diet.
Me neither. But it works for these guys.
They don't let good poo go to waste.
And when they have had a good feed,
they fly off to look for another sloth to live on.
And the sloth moth is linked back to the capybara,
who also recognises the nutritional value of poo.
Gross! But fascinating.
-What are you doing?
-I thought we would do away with the poop.
So I have got some mud and some water, and I'm making a mud pie.
# Half a pound of mud in a bowl Half a pint of water
# Mix it up and make it nice... #
I can't seem to get the consistency right.
That is because you are missing two vital ingredients.
-What are they?
-I'm surprised you can't guess.
It is simple. I will let the giant otter show you.
We ain't showing you nothing!
Forget about it. We are showing you nothing.
This family of giant otters
are the real experts when it comes to making mud pies.
What, they eat mud pies for dinner every night?
They don't eat them, but they do make them.
Right outside their front door, in fact. Look.
First, they choose a muddy spot.
Oh, that looks nice and muddy.
Then they add some poo and wee, and mix it in.
Poo and wee? What is wrong with simple mud and water?
Well, the wee and poo stink really bad,
so it's what the otters use to mark their territory.
Just like the sloth moth, they don't let good poo go to waste.
It must smell like a really bad toilet.
You don't need poo and wee to make a pie.
Whatever you put in here works just fine. Let's try.
Mmm. See, it's perfect.
What did you put in here, by the way?
Tricked you! It's only chocolate mix.
Phew! From now on, let's leave the mud pie making to the otters.
They're linked to the sloth moth as they both put poo to good use.
After all that poo, I feel a nice, genteel story coming on.
Cool, I love a good story.
Once upon a time in a far-off land called Latin America,
there lived a beautiful maned wolf.
Wow, she is really pretty.
But also, an unusual-looking wolf,
covered in red fur and with long, gangly legs.
She had nicknames like...
-Red Fox On Stilts. Little Ginger.
-I hope she doesn't mind.
The name Little Ginger stuck, actually,
even though she was one of the most beautiful
and elegant wolves imaginable.
I love your red fur coat, Little Ginger.
Why, thank you.
Little Ginger loved prancing through the grasslands of her home,
singing little songs to herself all day long.
# Tra-la-la-la-la Tra-la-la-la-la. #
Wait a minute. This is all a bit happy.
I thought today's programme was all about gross things.
Hang on, I'm getting to that bit.
One day, an intruder animal came
and tried to push Little Ginger out of her homeland.
Oi, sling it!
Oh, I'm so sad! I don't know what to do.
Oh, stop crying, wolf.
She roamed around homeless for days.
-OK, it's sad, but where is the gross bit, Barney?
Until one day, Little Ginger came across a stinky skunk.
I am so smelly, and you have nothing.
The skunk gave Ginger a cunning plan to win back her territory.
What did she do?
She devised a strong smelling perfume,
which she could spray around her territory.
So that no animal would want to steal her home ever again.
Clever Little Ginger. What was her secret ingredient?
I might have to get some.
-I don't think so. It is made of wee-wee.
Yes, and to this day, Little Ginger and all the other maned wolves
spray their territories with their wee
to show other animals which is their patch.
It's a happy ending to the story.
Now, the maned wolf is linked to the giant otter
as they both use poo or wee to mark their territory.
I reckon it's time for a recap.
So, first up in our stinky, pooey, gooey show,
-it was the dung beetle.
-All right, mate?
He stores the poo of other animals, and then he eats it.
Next, our overgrown guinea pig, the capybara.
Excuse me. Just passing through.
It has trouble digesting its food,
so it poops it out and gobbles it up again.
Similar to our dung-loving dung beetle.
Then it was our sloth moth.
The adult moths lay their eggs in the sloth poo,
so the babies have a nice soft cradle and instant poo food.
Like the capybara,
they also recognise the nutritional value of poo.
Our giant otters use their smelly poo and wee to mark their territory,
just like the sloth moths they put poo to good use.
Wow, waste not, want not.
Our maned wolf makes her own waste products work for her.
She loves spraying her wee to keep other animals away,
just like the otters, to mark her territory.
After our poo and wee fest, guess what's next?
Is it something else gross?
Is it something gooey and slimy?
Yep! It's a snake, but the snake itself isn't slimy.
It has cool, dry skin.
It is called a thirst snake.
If it is thirsty, why doesn't it have a drink?
Right now, it's got something else on its mind.
Yes, the more slime, the better.
I think I have found me some slime!
The snake tastes the air with its tongue and follows
slime trails looking for slimy animals to eat like snails and slugs.
Yes, siree, it's a slime trail!
So, why do slugs and snails leave trails?
Snail trails! I am a poet and I didn't know it.
So unoriginal, Barney.
Getting back to the story, unlike the snake,
snails and slugs need oozy slime to move around on.
But it also gives this thirst snake an easy track to follow.
-Look out, snail!
-Ah, what is this?
It's got a hat on. How do you get into this one?
-Leave me alone!
A lucky escape there for the snail.
Not so sure this slug will have such a happy ending, though.
The snake is never going to be able to swallow that.
He won't let size get in his way.
He has got a special trick, a double-hinged jaw
which allows him to open his mouth really wide
so he can fit in all shapes and sizes of slugs.
When he's done, the snake yawns to click his jaw back into place.
That was delicious!
Wow, that was clever, if a little stomach-churning.
Well, the snake has got to eat something to survive.
So, the thirst snake is linked to the maned wolf,
as they both use stinky and slimy trails to their advantage.
Ah, pretty butterflies.
Not so nice, though.
Look how these butterflies are irritating the otters.
Oh, yeah. What are they doing?
They are trying to drink the salty tears from the otters' eyes.
-The otters don't look too happy.
They keep batting the butterflies away.
You wouldn't be happy if a butterfly
was trying to stick its tongue in your eye.
And not just any tongue, either. A special butterfly tongue thingy.
The tongue is a long, narrow tube called a proboscis.
Yes, that. And the butterfly uses its, um, proboscis
like a straw to suck up tasty things.
For these butterflies, nothing is tastier than salty otter tears.
Wouldn't be my choice of refreshment.
What are they doing to those turtles?
Lot of turtle tears for me, please.
Well, in fact, any tears will do. # Any tears will do... #
These turtles are easy targets
as they can't swipe the butterflies away.
The butterflies are having a drink.
I wonder why they like salt so much?
Everyone likes a bit of salt.
Especially on chips. Ooh, chips.
No, Barney, these butterflies need the sodium found in salt
to help produce pheromones,
a type of chemical which they used to attract a mate.
That makes more sense.
Gimme some, gimme some, gimme some.
Once they have had their fill of tears, it's time for pudding.
What do they have for pudding?
It can't be as bad as turtle tears.
No, it is worse. Remember the otters smeared poo outside their home?
Yeah? Oh, no, don't tell me the butterflies eat otter poo?
Look at them, getting stuck in there.
They're attracted by the smell and suck up the liquid.
That's some diet, turtle tears and otter poo.
The butterflies are linked back to the thirst snake
as they both rely on the natural products of other animals.
Our next animal is found only on the Galapagos Islands, the marine iguana.
All right, Sheila? Get your bathers on, boys, let's go surfing.
These lizards are expert surfers.
Come on, mate, let's show them how it's done.
First one to catch a wave gets seaweed. Hang ten, mate.
Look out! Here comes a big one!
Check out that dude riding the wave.
Yep, the iguanas have to be strong swimmers and divers, too.
With only one breath, they have to dive underwater
to feed on algae on the seabed.
Now, that's cool.
He can hold his breath and feed underwater at the same time?
Yes, but there's one problem.
The iguanas snort in too much salt as they're feeding.
I'm suddenly overwhelmed by a need to blow my nose.
I must go right away.
So they end up with loads of salty snot up their noses?
Anyone got a handkerchief?
These guys don't bother with hankies,
they just sneeze the salty snot straight out.
A great way of clearing the nasal passages.
Yeah, a great way.
This sea air has given me some quite salty snot.
-Barney, you've got it on your head.
Don't worry, the iguanas do, too.
When they snot out salt into the air, some of it lands back on their heads,
forming a crusty white snotty wig.
And the salty, snotty iguana is linked back
to the butterflies as they both take on board a lot of salt.
And now I give you the baby scarlet ibis.
Aw! They're really cute.
I know, but there's one small problem.
Because the baby birds can't fly or swim yet,
they can't go hunting for food,
-so the parents came up with an ingenious solution.
There must be some food around here somewhere.
Here, shrimpy, shrimpy. Here's one.
She's gobbling all the food up for herself.
I thought she was supposed to be feeding her babies?
Yeah, that's the bit coming up. Quite literally.
Rather than trying to carry the food back in her beak, she swallows it.
Then, back at base, she...
Brings it right back for her little babies.
It's known as regurgitation.
-It doesn't look very appetising.
-But it is nutritional.
Look, these other birds do it, too.
Does everything in this programme have to be so disgusting?
That's the point calling it Stinky, Pooey, Gooey.
For the scarlet ibis, and lots of other birds,
it's a great way of making sure the baby gets food directly
from the parents without anybody else stealing it.
Even if it's a clever way of feeding your babies,
I still wouldn't want to get my breakfast like that.
But anyway, the scarlet ibis is linked to the marine iguana
as they both have to bring something back up.
Right then, Gem, what's next? I can't see anything.
Hold your horses. Here she comes, slithering through the undergrowth.
What is it? It's like a giant blue earthworm.
It's not a worm, it's got a backbone, and worms don't have backbones.
-This is a caecilian.
That sounds like a type of pizza.
It's actually an amphibian related to frogs.
Second cousins once removed.
It looks like the frog things have got themselves in a tangle.
Caecilians, Barney, caecilians.
And they're not tangled, this is a mother and her babies.
Babies which are hungry. And here's the twist.
Oh, they've got teeth!
Gem, I think the babies are eating their mum!
Calm down, Barney, this is the mum's trick.
She grows a thick layer of skin
especially for her babies every three days.
It's really nutritious and the babies love it.
They gnaw away at it with their tiny teeth.
She must be a real yummy mummy.
-Yum, yum, yum.
And eating so much skin means the babies grow
up to ten times their own weight in a week.
I never knew there was so much nutritional value in eating skin.
Does biting your nails count?
Caecilians are linked to the scarlet ibis
as both parents feed gross things to their babies.
What are you doing? Is that something in your ear?
Brilliant, that'll come in handy.
-Do you want some?
Gross! You're so disgusting.
It's better than letting your skin dry out in the sun.
Ear wax doesn't protect your skin.
The waxy tree frog thinks it does.
This frog has special glands which ooze wax.
It rubs the wax all over its body to keep itself moist
and protect its skin from drying out in the heat of the sun.
Hey, chico, let's rub some of that waxy stuff in
and let's get some rays.
Sunbathing. I love a bit. Get it all over.
It's one of the only animals in the world
that can stay out for so long in the sun without burning.
-Clever. Don't forget to rub it behind your ears, boys.
-Rub it, yeah.
I can rub some into my back. I can't reach the back...
So, the waxy tree frog is linked to the caecilian
as they both have important skin.
-What's that smell?
-That'll be my next animal.
You can often smell them before you see them.
-It's like a musky, piggy smell.
Introducing the musk hog, or, more correctly, the collared peccary.
Are you sure, Gem? He looks like a big, hairy pig to me.
They are related to pigs,
but their name comes from the collar around their necks.
And you don't tend to get domestic pigs with teeth like these guys.
I know. They use their razor-sharp tusks to defend themselves.
I'm not sure anything would want to go near them anyway
with that smell in the air.
-What's that smell?
-No, wasn't me.
Hang on, it's you. I can smell it on you. It's you.
-All right, it's me.
-How very rude.
Breaking wind in public, I'd never do that.
They haven't broken wind,
that smell is their defence and communication system.
It's emitted from a special gland on their backs.
Special gland schmand, it stinks, Gem. What's the point of that?
They use the smell to warn other peccaries of danger.
-OK, like a warning stink bomb?
-Yeah, I guess so.
And they also use the smell to keep in touch with each other
and stay close when they're on the move.
-Where are they?
-I'm over here, guys. Over here.
So that's why they're rubbing their smell all over each other?
No deodorant for these guys, they love their body odour.
You would, too, if it helped you survive
in the wild of Latin America.
And the collard peccaries are linked back to the waxy tree frog
as they both coat themselves in their own natural products.
Ah, fresh flowers.
Finally a break from all those stinky, pooey, gooey animals.
What a wonderful way to end the show, Barney.
They are orchids and in Latin America
there are a load of different ones.
Some smell lovely, but others, here and worldwide,
have a rather different aroma.
Imagine the smell of sweaty socks,
or a dustbin that hasn't been emptied for a whole year.
What orchids could possibly want to smell bad?
Stinky plants like this are found all over the world,
from Latin America to Australia, Europe to Papua New Guinea,
and the smell is all part of a trick to make sure
their pollen gets transported from one plant to another.
-They all depend on flies for survival.
-What's that fly doing?
I wouldn't want to go anywhere near stinky orchid.
For this fly, the flower smells
of its most favourite thing in the world, rotting meat.
Flamin' galah. Would you look at that? A barbie!
And see the red bit in the middle?
It's designed to look like a piece of meat so the fly
is attracted to the look and the smell,
-thinking it's found a tasty meal.
So yummy! Oh, hello.
But as the fly moves, the orchid closes in.
Hello? Anyone there? I'm stuck.
Trapping the fly while the orchid attaches pollen to its back.
This is the orchid's con, and what they wanted to happen.
They rely on it for pollination.
I'm free! I won't do that again!
I bet he's learned his lesson now. He won't fall for that one again.
Well, the fly is pretty forgetful.
Just a few minutes later, it's tricked by another plant.
Oh! What's that? A barbecue? All for me?
Thank goodness I'm not a fly.
Anyone there? I'm stuck!
Hello? Anyone there?
And that's how stinky plants around the world
get pollen from place to place, on the back of a fly.
Free at last. I won't do that again.
Oh, what's that red thing over there?
The orchids are linked to the collared peccary because,
quite frankly, they both stink.
What an amazing array of smells, poo, and goo.
Let's have a look at how our Latin American animals
and plants have all put them to good use.
First up, it was the dung beetle,
who stores the poo of other animals and then eats it.
Next, the capybara who has trouble digesting its food first time round,
so it poops it out and gobbles it up again.
They obviously have the same taste as the dung beetle.
Then the sloth moth who lay their eggs in sloth dung
so the babies have a nice, soft cradle and instant food.
Another one on a pooey diet.
Then the giant otters.
They're linked back to the sloth moth as they put their poo
and wee to good use, making mud pies to mark their territory.
Next, it was the maned wolf.
Just like the giant otters, they spray their wee around
to mark their territory.
The thirst snake is attracted to gross things, slug slime.
-It can't get enough of the stuff.
It's linked to the maned wolf
as they both use stinky and slimy trails to their advantage.
Our South American butterflies have a taste salt,
particularly turtle tears.
They rely on the natural products of other animals.
The marine iguanas take on board a lot of salt,
just like the butterflies.
-But these guys have to snot some of it out again.
They aren't the only ones who bring something back up.
Linked to the marine iguanas,
these scarlet ibis parents have to throw up their food for the chicks.
And the caecilian is linked to the scarlet ibis
as it also feeds its babies something gross, its own skin!
Yum, yum, yum, yum.
The waxy tree frog is linked to the caecilian
as they both have important skin.
It uses a special wax to keep its skin moist
in the heat of the midday sun.
And the waxy tree frog is linked to the collared peccary
as they coat themselves in their own natural products.
The orchid is linked to the collared peccary
because they both stink.
And finally, the orchid is also linked all the way back
to the dung beetle as they both use smells to their advantage.
It's been great experiencing the smells, the poo, and the goo
of Latin America's animals and plants.
And I haven't had to use my slime protection suit! Ha-ha-ha!
Right, you, have it! Agh!
Well, I suppose we couldn't do a show called Stinky, Pooey, Gooey
without getting a bit of it on us, could we?
-Thanks. You missed a bit.
