Today on Roar, a huge male tiger has come to the park,

0:00:020:00:06

he's over three metres long,

0:00:060:00:08

weighs over 200 kilogram's and has canine teeth as long as your finger.

0:00:080:00:13

Oh, and his hair do's not bad either.

0:00:130:00:17

Hello and welcome to Roar, I'm Johny.

0:00:460:00:50

I'm Rani, and we are in the vulture aviary.

0:00:500:00:52

I thought I was going to be scared because vultures

0:00:520:00:55

are meant to be mean, scary meat-eating birds,

0:00:550:00:58

but look, they're beautiful. Hello you, want to be friends?

0:00:580:01:02

That's not a vulture, that's a vulturine guinea fowl there.

0:01:020:01:05

The vultures are actually up there.

0:01:050:01:07

Are those big, mean, scary looking things?

0:01:100:01:14

I think we should get out of here, get on with the show.

0:01:140:01:17

Coming up, the sea lions can swim at 40 kilometres per hour,

0:01:210:01:25

but we've never filmed them underwater,

0:01:250:01:28

so can the Roar team rise to the challenge?

0:01:280:01:32

Will our keeper get beat again when this lot ask some

0:01:320:01:35

bird-brained questions about the rainbow lorikeets?

0:01:350:01:38

# Beat again... #

0:01:380:01:40

# Won't beat again it's killing me... #

0:01:400:01:44

And do you know your snood from your wattle,

0:01:440:01:47

your gobble from your gizzard? Rani learns to talk turkey.

0:01:470:01:50

Close up, a bit creepy looking.

0:01:500:01:53

It's all that bobble-y stuff on his face, what is going on?

0:01:530:01:58

The production team have asked a lot of me this series.

0:02:000:02:03

They've covered me in lorikeets,

0:02:030:02:05

sent me to otter birthday parties, introduced me to mean-looking lions,

0:02:050:02:10

and have I ever once let them down?

0:02:100:02:12

No, I haven't, so now I'm going to ask something of them for a change.

0:02:120:02:17

I want to see a shot of a sea lion swimming underwater

0:02:170:02:21

and I want to know if they use their front

0:02:210:02:24

or their back flippers for swimming.

0:02:240:02:26

Is that too much to ask? Well, is it?

0:02:260:02:29

-No, Mr Pitts.

-That's more like it. It's not just this horrible lot

0:02:290:02:33

that will help me get this shot,

0:02:330:02:34

it's also head keeper Mark thankfully.

0:02:340:02:37

-How are you doing, Mark?

-All right.

0:02:370:02:39

How can we do this? How can we get a shot,

0:02:390:02:41

I'm being serious, of a sea lion underwater?

0:02:410:02:44

A waterproof camera would be helpful,

0:02:440:02:47

but probably should be quite easy

0:02:470:02:49

because they swim alongside the boats.

0:02:490:02:52

So, camera on a long pole off the side of the boat

0:02:520:02:54

and I'm sure you'd be able to get something.

0:02:540:02:57

We've not done this before, at least on Roar,

0:02:570:02:59

is it something that they'll be wary of, a big camera?

0:02:590:03:02

They're really inquisitive animals so I would have thought

0:03:020:03:05

something unusual hanging off the side of the boat

0:03:050:03:08

and they'd want to come and look.

0:03:080:03:10

So, we're going to get an underwater camera and go with the boat.

0:03:100:03:13

We don't need to leave it there then go off?

0:03:130:03:16

Probably best as the boat's going along and people

0:03:160:03:18

are feeding off the side, would probably be your best chance.

0:03:180:03:22

Have you ever seen them swimming underwater yourself?

0:03:220:03:25

-Yes, because sometimes the lake goes really clear.

-Really?

0:03:250:03:28

Certain points of the year it goes clear

0:03:280:03:30

and you can see them swimming under really nicely.

0:03:300:03:33

That's great. So kind of an obvious question,

0:03:330:03:35

but sea lions are uber swimmers then.

0:03:350:03:37

Are they specially developed for this?

0:03:370:03:39

Amazing swimmers, amazingly powerful,

0:03:390:03:42

propel through the water at up to 25 miles an hour.

0:03:420:03:45

25 miles... Wow, that's incredible.

0:03:450:03:46

-So that's about 40 kilometres per hour?

-Yes.

0:03:460:03:50

That's amazing. Who do you think would come up to the camera first.

0:03:500:03:53

Buster being the big man and the head guy,

0:03:530:03:56

would you think he'd come up to the camera first?

0:03:560:03:58

He'd probably be the last one. He's a bit of a chicken on the quiet.

0:03:580:04:02

The three girls would be more likely to come up first.

0:04:020:04:05

So anything else that we need to know

0:04:050:04:07

about capturing this amazing moment?

0:04:070:04:10

No, I think like last year when we did it with the hippos,

0:04:100:04:13

lots of cameras and a little bit of patience.

0:04:130:04:15

We've got a plan.

0:04:150:04:17

Join us later on in the show to see if we can get this amazing footage

0:04:170:04:21

-of a sea lion swimming, should be simple.

-I'm ready, Mr Pitts.

0:04:210:04:24

Although having said that, dude, seriously take a look at yourself.

0:04:240:04:27

Sorry about that, Mark.

0:04:270:04:29

We're off now up to Tiger Territory

0:04:340:04:36

because there's a new kid on the block to meet.

0:04:360:04:39

In the last series of Roar we filmed with Svetli, Shouri, and Soundari,

0:04:390:04:43

the three Siberian or Amur tigers who live here.

0:04:430:04:47

They're all females and up till now they've been enjoying

0:04:470:04:52

having the place to themselves and doing the things that

0:04:520:04:55

tigers love doing most, playing and sleeping.

0:04:550:05:00

But recently the peace and quiet of the tiger house

0:05:000:05:04

has been shattered by the arrival of a huge new male.

0:05:040:05:07

This is Turlock, he's enormous

0:05:090:05:11

and keeper Bob thinks he's fantastic.

0:05:110:05:15

If he was to stand up - are you going to stand up, mate?

0:05:150:05:18

Now I'm 6' 2" and just in here he towers above me,

0:05:180:05:23

that's not full stretch.

0:05:230:05:25

From tip of tail to tip of nose, he's got to be in the region

0:05:250:05:29

of nine-ten feet long.

0:05:290:05:30

Nine-ten feet! That's three metres long.

0:05:300:05:34

He's a big gentle giant, really.

0:05:370:05:41

I wouldn't want to go out there and walk around with him,

0:05:410:05:43

but in the house, he's a breath of fresh air.

0:05:430:05:47

It looks like you can go in and give him a big tickle

0:05:470:05:50

but you wouldn't be coming back out again.

0:05:500:05:53

Siberian tigers are the largest of all the big cats,

0:05:530:05:57

but they are critically endangered.

0:05:570:05:59

There are thought to be only around 450 left

0:05:590:06:03

living in the wilds of the far east of Russia.

0:06:030:06:07

Turlock has never been to Russia, he was born in a zoo,

0:06:070:06:11

and at 15 he's quite old in tiger years.

0:06:110:06:14

He's already mixing well with the girls,

0:06:140:06:17

but summer is arriving at the park and as the temperatures rise

0:06:170:06:20

the keepers want to make sure that all the tigers

0:06:200:06:23

can cool down if they want to.

0:06:230:06:26

So today it's Operation Tiger Pond,

0:06:260:06:30

getting the new male Turlock to have a swim.

0:06:300:06:32

The plan this morning is we're going to fill the tiger pond up,

0:06:320:06:36

I'm taking the tractor and the bowser in,

0:06:360:06:38

which is going to release gallons of water.

0:06:380:06:41

But keeping the tigers' pond topped up

0:06:410:06:43

isn't as easy as it sounds.

0:06:430:06:46

We have to get out to fill the pond up.

0:06:460:06:49

Someone has to get out of the vehicle to get the pipe off the bowser.

0:06:490:06:53

And there's another problem, Turlock's hunting instincts

0:06:530:06:57

kick in when cars or the tractor come into his territory.

0:06:570:07:02

He tends to chase vehicles now and again.

0:07:020:07:05

He doesn't actually do anything to them,

0:07:050:07:07

he runs after them and then he just stops.

0:07:070:07:09

So it causes a little bit of a problem.

0:07:090:07:14

But it's a job that has to be done.

0:07:140:07:16

You make it as safe as you can.

0:07:160:07:18

Will Turlock and the girls attack?

0:07:180:07:22

We'll join the big cat team later

0:07:220:07:24

to see how Operation Tiger Pond proceeds.

0:07:240:07:27

Big cats have big appetites.

0:07:330:07:35

An adult male tiger can eat 35-kilos of meat in one sitting.

0:07:350:07:41

That's more than 300 burgers,

0:07:410:07:43

but since a burger is fast food maybe it'd escape.

0:07:430:07:48

ALL: Now you know!

0:07:480:07:50

It's time to put our pros on the spot one more time

0:08:010:08:05

in another round of Ask The Keeper.

0:08:050:08:09

Today, answering all on the beautiful lorikeets,

0:08:090:08:12

is the beautiful Amy! Amy, how are you feeling?

0:08:120:08:15

I'm all right, I'm a little bit nervous,

0:08:150:08:17

-but I think we'll be all right.

-Yeah, you think so?

-I hope so.

0:08:170:08:20

Guys, do you think Amy looks confident or quite nervous?

0:08:200:08:24

-A bit of both.

-A bit of both!

0:08:240:08:26

All right, let's try and catch her out...

0:08:260:08:29

I mean, absorb her wonderful knowledge.

0:08:290:08:32

Who wants to go first? Go on then, Oliver.

0:08:320:08:34

What is their bill made out of?

0:08:340:08:36

It's like keratin, so it's like your nails.

0:08:360:08:39

It's a very tough beak, which obviously they use

0:08:390:08:41

to break open nuts and things.

0:08:410:08:43

But these birds mostly drink nectar

0:08:430:08:45

so they don't really need a really strong bill.

0:08:450:08:48

Can they speak like parrots?

0:08:480:08:50

That is a very good question.

0:08:500:08:52

They're not as good at copying and mimicking

0:08:520:08:56

as the macaws but they can chatter.

0:08:560:08:57

They sing songs and they do a lot of whistling,

0:08:570:09:00

but very rarely do they actually mimic words like bigger parrots.

0:09:000:09:04

Do they have a favourite artist they like to sing?

0:09:040:09:08

-Probably JLS.

-JLS, is that the kind of thing?

0:09:080:09:11

# My heart won't beat again... #

0:09:110:09:14

What's the difference between a lorikeet and a parakeet?

0:09:170:09:21

The difference between lorikeets and parakeets.

0:09:210:09:23

Parakeets are a little bit smaller than these guys,

0:09:230:09:26

and they are part of the parrot family,

0:09:260:09:29

but they're different breeds of parrots.

0:09:290:09:31

The parakeets are a lot smaller and there's different breeds.

0:09:310:09:34

How long do they live, actually?

0:09:340:09:36

They can live for about 25 to 30 years,

0:09:360:09:39

so they live quite a long time.

0:09:390:09:41

Not as long as the macaws, but they quite a long time.

0:09:410:09:43

How hot does the climate need to be for a lorikeet to live?

0:09:430:09:47

That's a very good question. Well, these guys are from Australia

0:09:470:09:51

so it is very warm, but because these have been bred in captivity

0:09:510:09:54

they can adjust to the England climate.

0:09:540:09:57

When it's cold, they can adjust and they huddle together.

0:09:570:10:00

They keep their bodies nice and warm,

0:10:000:10:03

and they get a new layer of feathers as well, which keeps them warm.

0:10:030:10:07

You lot have asked great questions,

0:10:070:10:09

but I think if the lorikeets were a bit closer,

0:10:090:10:11

do you think that'd inspire you for a few more questions?

0:10:110:10:14

Can we do that? Is it possible to get them closer?

0:10:140:10:17

Of course. Here you go,

0:10:170:10:18

just make sure you hold the pots nice and tight.

0:10:180:10:21

OK, lorikeets, let's see what you look like then up close.

0:10:210:10:26

-There you go.

-Woo-hoo, I caught me a bird.

0:10:260:10:31

I caught me a few birds!

0:10:310:10:34

Amy, you have done fantastically well answering our questions,

0:10:440:10:49

but how are you going to be with a killer question?

0:10:490:10:51

Come on then, guys,

0:10:510:10:52

so we're going to come up with another question, any ideas?

0:10:520:10:56

Hah-ha-ha.

0:10:560:10:59

Killer question, killer question.

0:11:020:11:05

Enough of the dance, let's ask the question. Amy, look scared.

0:11:050:11:08

Here it goes, rainbow lorikeets get their names

0:11:080:11:11

from their coloured coats,

0:11:110:11:13

but can you name all the colours of the rainbow?

0:11:130:11:16

Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet.

0:11:200:11:28

-Indigo!

-YES! You missed one out! So the answer is, Amy,

0:11:280:11:33

"no, I cannot name all the colours."

0:11:330:11:38

High five. Thumbs up or thumbs down for Amy?

0:11:380:11:42

ALL: Yay!

0:11:420:11:44

Hey, Oliver, what does Amy know about lorikeets?

0:11:440:11:48

Amy knows a lorra, lorra lot about lorikeets.

0:11:480:11:50

RANI LAUGHS

0:11:500:11:53

Back up in Tiger Territory and the four big cats seem to know

0:11:590:12:05

that something is up.

0:12:050:12:06

The keepers need to bring the water tanker into their enclosure

0:12:080:12:12

to top up their pond.

0:12:120:12:13

Summer's here and the keepers want to ensure

0:12:130:12:16

the tigers have somewhere to cool down.

0:12:160:12:18

It takes a long time to fill the pond up

0:12:190:12:22

so it wouldn't be fair to lock the cats away

0:12:220:12:24

whilst they did it.

0:12:240:12:25

But Bob knows that the big male, Turlock, can be a problem

0:12:250:12:29

because he likes chasing things.

0:12:290:12:32

Brian's coming in with a tractor and bowser,

0:12:340:12:37

I'm here to put the pipe into the pond.

0:12:370:12:41

We also have Stuart in here who's going to guard

0:12:410:12:45

the tractor because Turlock does generally take on after it

0:12:450:12:49

and try to attack it.

0:12:490:12:50

You can bring the bowser in now, please?

0:12:520:12:55

It's just a case of waiting now.

0:12:550:12:58

As soon as the tractor enters the enclosure,

0:13:030:13:05

Turlock starts hunting.

0:13:050:13:08

Tigers can sprint at up to 40 miles an hour for a short distance

0:13:110:13:15

so this is just a jog for Turlock.

0:13:150:13:17

He uses his long tail to balance as he runs.

0:13:210:13:24

In the wild, less than one in ten hunts

0:13:240:13:27

are successful for tigers so the tractor may still get away.

0:13:270:13:31

This is the difficult part.

0:13:330:13:35

There's Turlock just coming through there,

0:13:350:13:38

and there's a tiger just outside.

0:13:380:13:44

A third keeper, Stuart, is keeping a safety watch

0:13:440:13:48

on where all the tigers are in the park.

0:13:480:13:52

They're all round by the house, Brian.

0:13:520:13:55

I'm just going to get out now and do the pipe.

0:13:550:13:58

All we've got to do now is wait for that to empty.

0:14:050:14:10

Bob and Brian have worked with tigers for over 30 years

0:14:100:14:14

so they know what's safe and what's not.

0:14:140:14:17

They're always very careful,

0:14:170:14:20

but no visitor should ever get out of their car in a big cat reserve.

0:14:200:14:25

You've got to be able to read the animal as much as anything else

0:14:250:14:30

and these animals are as wild as wild.

0:14:300:14:32

They've got their natural instincts

0:14:320:14:34

even though they've been born in captivity,

0:14:340:14:36

every opportunity they get, they would try and get you.

0:14:360:14:40

With the pond topped up Bob now has to get the pipe back on the tractor.

0:14:400:14:45

The trouble is Turlock is a little bit too close for comfort.

0:14:450:14:48

As you can see he's right here.

0:14:480:14:49

So I'm not going to get out and get the pipe yet.

0:14:490:14:53

Just in case.

0:14:530:14:54

We do need Stuart just to push him off for safety reasons.

0:14:540:14:58

-All right?

-Yes.

0:14:580:15:01

Phew, Bob's OK.

0:15:100:15:12

Everything's now ready, so will Turlock decide to go swimming?

0:15:120:15:16

No, it seems he's more interested in chasing the tractor again.

0:15:180:15:23

Stay here.

0:15:300:15:32

Good boy. No good chasing it, is it?

0:15:320:15:35

With the pond topped up,

0:15:350:15:37

it's bath time for the biggest of the big cats.

0:15:370:15:41

Will the keepers be able to tempt the tigers to take a dip?

0:15:410:15:44

We'll be back in Tiger Territory in a short while.

0:15:440:15:47

Where do baby cows eat?

0:15:500:15:52

"Calf-eteria."

0:15:520:15:55

BOTH: Bwok-bwok-bwok. cock-a-doodle-doo.

0:15:550:15:58

Why was the cat on the desktop?

0:15:580:16:00

-why was the cat on the desktop?

-He was looking for the mouse.

0:16:000:16:03

Hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo-ha-ha-ha-ha whoo-whoo...

0:16:030:16:06

What do bees chew? "Bum-ble" gum.

0:16:060:16:10

THEY ALL LAUGH

0:16:100:16:12

Earlier on in the show,

0:16:250:16:26

I set the Roar team the challenge of getting me

0:16:260:16:29

some amazing footage of the sea lions swimming.

0:16:290:16:32

and now it's time to find out how they did.

0:16:320:16:34

-I'm here with Mark, how are you doing?

-Hi, Johny.

0:16:340:16:37

Mark, your job's safe, but am I going to have

0:16:370:16:39

to sack any members of our crew today?

0:16:390:16:41

I'm not sure, you'll have to check some of this and see what we think.

0:16:410:16:46

So this is on our small camera and it looks...

0:16:460:16:48

Oh it's quite interesting getting close to them.

0:16:480:16:53

So they're being fed here now, are they?

0:16:530:16:55

That's the thing, the sea lions associate the boats with food,

0:16:550:16:58

that's why they're all on the surface and looking upwards.

0:16:580:17:02

There's a sea lion there,

0:17:020:17:04

but we can't see anything because it's so murky.

0:17:040:17:07

Why is that water so murky, Mark?

0:17:070:17:09

That's just natural lake water, it actually looks quite clear

0:17:090:17:12

when you're above it

0:17:120:17:13

looking at it, but it's not as clear as you think.

0:17:130:17:16

I'm not that impressed, are you, Mark?

0:17:160:17:18

We couldn't see anything underneath the water.

0:17:180:17:21

Nothing to be seen, is there?

0:17:210:17:22

It's not a good start. Can the Roar team pull something out of the bag?

0:17:220:17:27

Hopefully this last bit of footage will give us what we want,

0:17:270:17:30

because I've not been that impressed so far.

0:17:300:17:33

Let's see what they've got here, this is quite interesting.

0:17:330:17:37

-Wow.

-That's more like it.

0:17:370:17:38

Now that's incredible, actually.

0:17:380:17:40

Do you know where that is, Mark?

0:17:400:17:43

Because that obviously isn't out in the lake.

0:17:430:17:46

No, that's in our holding pen in the yard.

0:17:460:17:48

You've got young Riley and Jaz was in there as well.

0:17:480:17:51

Riley was brought up for weaning, to come away from his mum

0:17:510:17:55

and be weaned onto fish, and Jaz had an injury

0:17:550:17:57

to her flipper so she was in here just while we could monitor her

0:17:570:18:02

and give her antibiotics and things.

0:18:020:18:04

But they're now both back out in the lake.

0:18:040:18:07

This amazing footage shows that Californian sea lions actually use

0:18:070:18:11

the front flippers to swim with and the smaller back flippers

0:18:110:18:15

are mainly there for steering.

0:18:150:18:17

I have to say I'm actually really impressed with this

0:18:170:18:20

because can see that the fish are coming in

0:18:200:18:22

and we've seen how they eat underneath the water.

0:18:220:18:25

-That's great, isn't it?

-How have they adapted

0:18:250:18:28

to be able to eat fish underwater, Mark, how do they do it?

0:18:280:18:32

It's a valve in their throat where they can close their throat off

0:18:320:18:36

and open their mouth to be able to grab the food.

0:18:360:18:40

Is there anything to help them eat underneath the water?

0:18:400:18:43

Well, obviously the main thing is speed and manoeuvrability

0:18:430:18:47

to be able to catch fish.

0:18:470:18:48

Obviously, fish are pretty adapted to the water too

0:18:480:18:52

and they need to be able to keep up.

0:18:520:18:54

You can see from their flippers that they've got immense manoeuvrability.

0:18:540:18:59

So how long can sea lions stay under the water for?

0:18:590:19:02

A good eight minutes if they want to, so they can stay under a while.

0:19:020:19:06

It is incredible to see footage of an animal that we only see

0:19:060:19:10

above the water despite them being under the water so often.

0:19:100:19:14

I think this is quite good

0:19:140:19:15

and I don't think we have to sack anybody just yet.

0:19:150:19:19

-We'll let them off.

-They did all right.

0:19:190:19:21

-I wouldn't mind a cup of tea.

-Yeah, me too as well.

0:19:210:19:24

Tea guys, tea quick, sharpish.

0:19:240:19:26

When you come to a safari park you expect to see lions, tigers,

0:19:330:19:37

elephants, monkeys, even parrots, but really is that a turkey?

0:19:370:19:43

Katie, are you serious, do you have a turkey here?

0:19:430:19:48

That is quite scary looking.

0:19:480:19:51

This is Terry the turkey

0:19:510:19:52

and he lives in Animal Adventure with us, he just roams free.

0:19:520:19:55

He likes to stay near the high racks to see himself in the window.

0:19:550:19:59

Really? Are you quite vain then, Terry?

0:19:590:20:01

-I've got to say close up, a bit creepy looking.

-A little bit scary.

0:20:010:20:06

It's all that kind of bobble-y stuff on his face.

0:20:060:20:09

What is going on and what's with the horn?

0:20:090:20:11

The thing on the top of his beak is called a snood.

0:20:110:20:14

It goes up and out when he's displaying and the ones underneath

0:20:140:20:17

are caruncles and he fills that with blood when he's displaying.

0:20:170:20:21

-When he fills it with blood, does it get big?

-Yes.

0:20:210:20:23

-Because we always think of turkey necks.

-Big red bulgy bits.

0:20:230:20:27

-Not very attractive at all.

-Oh, bless him.

0:20:270:20:30

OK, now I believe you've got some treats here for Terry.

0:20:300:20:33

We've got a little bit of food to try and keep him a bit more occupied.

0:20:330:20:37

Oh look, look. His nose has just flopped down.

0:20:370:20:40

Yeah, that's the little bit he fills with blood, it just flops down.

0:20:400:20:43

That's amazing.

0:20:430:20:45

The snood starts off looking like a small red horn,

0:20:450:20:48

but when it fills with blood, look what happens to it.

0:20:480:20:51

It goes long and dangly.

0:20:510:20:53

Now we've got John there, he's one of our Roar team,

0:20:530:20:56

he's just trying to keep Terry over here.

0:20:560:20:58

Has his nose flopped because John is in his way?

0:20:580:21:01

Yes, he's just saying you're in my way, I want to get over there.

0:21:010:21:04

John, you're in Terry's way and you've made his snood flop.

0:21:040:21:08

-Terry!

-Why is he displaying?

0:21:080:21:12

He's displaying for female turkeys to try and look impressive to them.

0:21:120:21:16

So he thinks John, our researcher, is a female turkey?

0:21:160:21:19

Or a threat and he's trying to make himself look scary

0:21:190:21:22

so John will go away.

0:21:220:21:24

-Now, I've got to say, his feet are quite big and impressive.

-Yes.

0:21:240:21:28

Slightly scary, are they weapons?

0:21:280:21:31

They can be, he can use them, he can give a good kick

0:21:310:21:33

and he's got spurs on the back of his feet as well,

0:21:330:21:36

which can do a bit of damage, but he doesn't really ever use his feet.

0:21:360:21:40

So what would he use, is it just a pecking action?

0:21:400:21:44

Yes, a nice good peck at somebody.

0:21:440:21:47

He's pretty nifty as well because he's a big old bird. Does he fly?

0:21:470:21:51

Not really, he can fly up a little height to get onto a perch

0:21:510:21:55

or something, but they're too heavy to fly any distance.

0:21:550:21:58

So what keeps Terry happy, some mealworms?

0:21:580:22:01

-Lots of mealworms.

-And what else?

0:22:010:22:04

He likes to rummage around in leaves, a lot of dried leaves.

0:22:040:22:07

He'll have a good scratch around in. He's very fond of his greens.

0:22:070:22:10

Likes to eat nice and healthy does our Terry.

0:22:100:22:13

Well, Terry, it's been really lovely seeing you and while your snood

0:22:130:22:17

is full of blood I think we're going to get out of here.

0:22:170:22:21

Thanks very much, Katie.

0:22:210:22:22

Right, all you gamers,

0:22:270:22:29

it's cheat code time for the Roar game on the CBBC website.

0:22:290:22:33

Type in sand3.

0:22:330:22:35

Dream of the summer holidays and see what you get. Happy gaming.

0:22:350:22:39

Back up in Tiger Territory the team have finished topping up the pond.

0:22:440:22:50

The next challenge it to try and tempt the tigers into it,

0:22:500:22:53

but how do you get a tiger to take a bath?

0:22:530:22:56

Bob has a plan.

0:22:560:22:59

I would just chuck some pieces of meat out around the pond

0:22:590:23:02

and then I'll call him up and see if he comes up to play.

0:23:020:23:05

Turlock's interested, but he's still not ready to take the plunge.

0:23:110:23:16

Just chuck this little play-thing out for him to encourage him over.

0:23:170:23:22

Come on!

0:23:220:23:24

That's done something, here he comes.

0:23:240:23:26

Most cats hate water but not tigers, they love it.

0:23:430:23:46

Cats generally try to stay away from water,

0:23:460:23:51

if it's raining my cat won't go out, but tigers love water.

0:23:510:23:55

A watering hole is an essential part of their territory and they will

0:23:550:23:59

guard that against other tigers in that area.

0:23:590:24:02

It's also a good ambush point for their prey as well.

0:24:020:24:06

Water is a key part of their territory.

0:24:060:24:10

Turlock will be able to take a bath as often as he wants now.

0:24:140:24:17

He'll visit the pond four or five times a day.

0:24:170:24:22

And it's a satisfying sight for the keepers.

0:24:220:24:26

I love seeing any animal engrossed in play,

0:24:260:24:30

whether it's with balls or amongst each other.

0:24:300:24:34

It's really nice to see that because it means they're happy here.

0:24:340:24:38

Now there are few animals here at the park that

0:24:560:24:58

bring fear to people's eyes just at the mere mention of their name.

0:24:580:25:02

We've popped over to meet one of them

0:25:020:25:04

-with their keeper Jo. Hello, Jo.

-Hi, Johny.

0:25:040:25:07

Jo, I've got to admit, I am one of those people.

0:25:070:25:10

I've never been a fan and I don't think anything you could say

0:25:100:25:14

could convince me otherwise, but try.

0:25:140:25:17

-Who've we got here?

-We will try. These are Leela and Stitch.

0:25:170:25:20

Cute names, that's a start. Which is which?

0:25:200:25:24

-This is Leela and this is Stitch.

-Is that male and female?

0:25:240:25:27

They're girls. Our boys are Bert and Ernie.

0:25:270:25:29

-These are two of our Madagascan hissing cockroaches.

-OK.

0:25:290:25:32

So you say hissing cockroaches, I'm guessing that they hiss?

0:25:320:25:37

-Yes, they can do.

-And why do they hiss?

0:25:370:25:40

The males are dominant to each other,

0:25:400:25:42

so they would hiss to warn each other off and they would hiss

0:25:420:25:45

if they're frightened, but these are used to being handled

0:25:450:25:48

so they're probably not going to do much of that today.

0:25:480:25:52

So the thing with cockroaches, that I don't like,

0:25:520:25:56

is I associate them with being dirty.

0:25:560:25:58

Are they dirty, because you're holding them?

0:25:580:26:01

There's about 4,000 species of cockroach and only 28 are pests.

0:26:010:26:04

They seem pretty chilled on you there,

0:26:040:26:06

-might I be able to hold one?

-Yes, of course you can.

0:26:060:26:09

I can't believe I'm actually saying this, but they seem so relaxed.

0:26:090:26:14

-There you go.

-That's actually not that bad at all, you know?

0:26:140:26:17

In fact, once they're on you,

0:26:170:26:19

this might sound weird, but they're quite cute.

0:26:190:26:21

They're very gentle. Look at their little heads.

0:26:210:26:25

Those antennae things that are flicking around,

0:26:250:26:29

is that because they've got rubbish eyesight or bad smell?

0:26:290:26:33

-Why do they do it?

-They can't see well,

0:26:330:26:35

they need to feel where they're going.

0:26:350:26:37

You're trying to convince us that cockroaches are great,

0:26:370:26:40

-tell me one good thing about them.

-They recycle, very good at recycling.

0:26:400:26:45

They are nature's recyclers, they will eat all the rotten fruit

0:26:450:26:48

and the rotten litter off of the floor in the forests.

0:26:480:26:51

Anyone who likes recycling is good by me, pass her over.

0:26:510:26:55

All right, well that's all we've got time for on today's show.

0:26:550:26:58

-Check out what's coming up on the next episode of Roar!

-Bye-bye.

0:26:580:27:02

The lion cubs must have their last injections.

0:27:040:27:07

They may look cute, but they have teeth and claws like knives,

0:27:070:27:11

so will the keepers escape unharmed?

0:27:110:27:13

Hello, is that King Kong?

0:27:160:27:18

Oh, it's only the marmosets.

0:27:180:27:20

Our Roar rangers are monkey keepers,

0:27:200:27:22

but there's always one show-off who'll do anything to get on telly.

0:27:220:27:27

And we meet the two baby oryx who are vital for the survival

0:27:290:27:33

of the species because they are now extinct in the wild.
