0:01:280:01:30

# Let's go! #

0:01:300:01:32

-Hi, I'm Faria.

-And I'm Magnus.

0:01:350:01:39

-Today, we are going to be helping an alpaca farm.

-Let's go!

0:01:390:01:44

This is Bob and he looks after alpacas.

0:01:490:01:52

-Hi, Bob!

-Hi, Bob!

-Hello, Let's Goers!

0:01:520:01:56

This is Eureka and this is Calvin.

0:01:560:01:58

They're different types, can you spot the difference?

0:01:580:02:01

-The fur's different.

-Yes, the fur's called fleece. Have a closer look.

0:02:010:02:06

Eureka's fur is short and Calvin's fur is long.

0:02:060:02:11

Eureka is a Huacaya alpaca,

0:02:110:02:13

and his fur grows out the way and becomes bushy.

0:02:130:02:17

Calvin is a Suri and his hair grows long.

0:02:170:02:20

Calvin is a Suri and Eureka is a Huacaya.

0:02:200:02:25

-Huacaya!

-Suri!

0:02:250:02:27

-Huacaya!

-Suri!

-Huacaya!

-Suri!

0:02:270:02:30

So, when the fleece is sheared off the animal, it's called fibre

0:02:300:02:34

and it looks like that.

0:02:340:02:36

And then it's spun into yarn,

0:02:360:02:40

and it looks like that.

0:02:400:02:41

And then, it's knitted into garments like these gloves or this scarf.

0:02:410:02:48

-Or this?

-Now, it's time to clear out the alpaca shelter.

0:02:480:02:51

-Will you two give me a hand? BOTH:

-Let's go!

0:02:510:02:54

We are picking up the poo so the alpacas don't get poorly.

0:02:590:03:05

Now, it's time to fill up the hay.

0:03:080:03:11

Well done.

0:03:110:03:13

Is it time to feed the alpacas?

0:03:140:03:18

-It certainly is, are you ready?

-Yes.

0:03:180:03:21

We're feeding the alpacas hay and grass pellet.

0:03:210:03:26

They also like eating grass outside.

0:03:260:03:30

Alpacas are from South America.

0:03:300:03:34

These ones live here in Scotland.

0:03:340:03:37

So they're a long way from home.

0:03:370:03:41

Come on, alpacas. Eat up!

0:03:410:03:44

Now, we have another job to do.

0:03:440:03:47

That looks like a big toothpaste tube.

0:03:470:03:50

It does, but it's filled with vitamins and minerals

0:03:500:03:53

and I need your help to give it to the alpacas.

0:03:530:03:56

Alpacas need extra vitamins and minerals,

0:03:560:04:02

because they can't get everything they need from their food here.

0:04:020:04:08

I've got another alpaca, Archie, who has a bit of a sore foot.

0:04:080:04:12

I think he needs some cream on it.

0:04:120:04:14

Well done, Magnus.

0:04:180:04:20

Now we're going to learn how to catch a head collar on a rope.

0:04:220:04:27

So we can take them out for a walk.

0:04:270:04:30

So we'll put it on.

0:04:300:04:32

All right. Now, if you come round here,

0:04:330:04:36

we pull, put that through.

0:04:360:04:38

And as tight as you can. Pull it tight, that's it. Well done.

0:04:380:04:43

It's very important to do this properly

0:04:430:04:48

because alpacas can only breathe through their nose.

0:04:480:04:53

We had a great time making friends with the alpacas, Bob, thank you.

0:05:070:05:13

-You're welcome.

-Now it's time to go for a little walk. Goodbye!

0:05:130:05:17

Have a lovely walk, Faria and Magnus,

0:05:270:05:29

and I love Apollo the alpaca's hairdo. What a looker!

0:05:290:05:33

Now, it's Cool Move time.

0:05:330:05:34

So spread your wings and shake your tail feathers.

0:05:340:05:38

This move is called the Funky Chicken and it goes a little like this.

0:05:380:05:42

Funky chicken, funky chicken,

0:05:420:05:44

funky chicken! Let's do it!

0:05:440:05:48

So we start by moving our feet side to side, like this.

0:05:480:05:52

You got that?

0:05:520:05:53

Next, we move our bodies up and then down.

0:05:530:05:58

Up and down.

0:05:580:05:59

And up, and down.

0:05:590:06:02

Now, while we're doing that, we move our arms up and down as well.

0:06:030:06:07

Up, and down. And up, and down.

0:06:070:06:12

When you come up, you pull your hands up to your waist

0:06:120:06:15

so they look like wings.

0:06:150:06:17

Let's put it all together.

0:06:170:06:19

Funky chicken, funky chicken, funky chicken!

0:06:190:06:23

And that's your Cool Move done.

0:06:230:06:25

If you'd like to see the Funky Chicken again, head to the website.

0:06:250:06:29

You can try out this move when we do the club dance!

0:06:290:06:32

Did you know that if you travel way back in time,

0:06:320:06:35

chickens are related to dinosaurs?

0:06:350:06:38

Imagine having one of those eggs for breakfast!

0:06:380:06:41

It's time for some big dinosaur facts.

0:06:410:06:43

First up, nobody knows exactly what colour dinosaurs were.

0:06:480:06:52

I di-know! Haha!

0:06:520:06:54

Dinosaur remains have been found in rocks called fossils.

0:06:540:06:58

But their colour didn't keep

0:06:580:07:00

after being buried in rocks for millions of years.

0:07:000:07:04

People weren't alive at the same time as dinosaurs,

0:07:040:07:07

so no-one can take a photo to remember their colours.

0:07:070:07:10

Maybe there was a stripe-eratops, or a spotty-osaurus?

0:07:100:07:15

Next, some dinosaurs had skulls that were as long as a car.

0:07:160:07:20

What a honking fact!

0:07:200:07:23

But even though they were such huge creatures,

0:07:230:07:26

most dinosaurs had tiny brains.

0:07:260:07:29

Like the stegosaurus, who was the size of a bus,

0:07:290:07:32

but had a brain no bigger than a lemon.

0:07:320:07:35

Definitely not a brainy-osaurus!

0:07:350:07:40

And finally, dinosaurs were one of the first creatures to use toilets!

0:07:400:07:45

Let's flush out the truth. Millions of years ago,

0:07:450:07:49

dinosaurs shared the spot where they did their business.

0:07:490:07:52

They pooped in the same place to mark out land

0:07:520:07:55

and keep other dinosaurs away.

0:07:550:07:58

Researchers know this because they found lots and lots of dino dung

0:07:580:08:02

clung together in fossils in South America.

0:08:020:08:06

The collection of poop was so large that it was deposited in a museum.

0:08:060:08:11

A POOseum! Fact!

0:08:110:08:14

We have got two very special guests with us,

0:08:200:08:23

we've got my buddy from My Pet And Me, Ferne, and Let's Goer Kitty.

0:08:230:08:27

Kitty has brought a brilliant pet in. Who's this?

0:08:270:08:30

This is Lexi, the leopard gecko.

0:08:300:08:33

Amazing, and what kind of food do you feed to Lexi?

0:08:330:08:36

We feed her waxworms, mealworms, grubs and locusts.

0:08:360:08:41

She's on the same diet as me! That sounds amazing.

0:08:410:08:44

Can you tell us a little bit more about Lexi?

0:08:440:08:48

Well, she stores food in her tail,

0:08:480:08:51

-and that's why she's got a really fat tail.

-She does, doesn't she?

0:08:510:08:55

But it looks great. Ferne, anything else about Lexi we should know?

0:08:550:08:59

-Yes, there's loads. Can I please hold her?

-Yeah.

-Here we go.

0:08:590:09:03

She's beautiful.

0:09:030:09:05

-Look at that tail!

-You can see that she stores all her food here,

0:09:050:09:09

it's nice and chubby.

0:09:090:09:10

Leopard geckos are one of the only lizard species

0:09:100:09:13

-that can blink their eyes, can't they?

-Yeah.

0:09:130:09:16

How do other lizard species clean their eyes?

0:09:160:09:19

-They do something funny.

-They just lick them.

-Ugh! Do they?

0:09:190:09:22

-I didn't know that.

-Lexi doesn't need to do that.

0:09:220:09:26

If you look on the side of her head,

0:09:260:09:28

-she's got these little holes and those are her ears.

-Oh, right!

0:09:280:09:32

-They're like little secret ears.

-Yeah.

0:09:320:09:34

What I love about leopard geckos is that

0:09:340:09:36

they always look like they're smiling. She is very happy.

0:09:360:09:40

Kitty, can you tell us about your other animals?

0:09:400:09:43

The other animals in the tank are called fire-bellied newts.

0:09:430:09:46

-They always have to have their skin wet.

-Where do they live at home?

0:09:460:09:51

-In a massive tank.

-And what's in the tank?

0:09:510:09:54

A piece of floating wood and mainly water.

0:09:540:09:59

-They love swimming, don't they?

-Yeah.

0:09:590:10:02

And why is that, why do they always need to be damp?

0:10:020:10:05

-Because they're amphibians.

-That is right.

0:10:050:10:08

Can you tell us the difference between amphibians,

0:10:080:10:11

like your newts, and reptiles?

0:10:110:10:13

Well, reptiles are always dry and newts have to be a little bit damp.

0:10:130:10:20

-That's right, perfect.

-I didn't know any of that. This is so cool.

0:10:200:10:24

Pretty cool, isn't it?

0:10:240:10:26

Lots of people think that newts and reptiles make good pets

0:10:260:10:30

and they can be really fun.

0:10:300:10:31

But like Lexi, some of them can live for a very long time

0:10:310:10:35

-so they need a lot of care.

-Yeah.

0:10:350:10:37

So make sure that you know loads about them

0:10:370:10:40

before you consider getting one

0:10:400:10:42

and maybe adopt one from a rescue centre, that's nice!

0:10:420:10:46

Are any of your friends and family not too sure about them?

0:10:460:10:49

They think that they're very cool.

0:10:490:10:52

And I'm the only one in my whole entire school

0:10:520:10:55

that has newts and a lizard.

0:10:550:10:56

-You're the only one in your entire school?

-Yeah.

0:10:560:11:00

Well, I think they're really cool.

0:11:000:11:02

It's important that you wash your hands

0:11:020:11:04

-after you touch the animals, isn't it?

-Yeah.

0:11:040:11:07

Ferne, thank you for coming in, and, Kitty,

0:11:070:11:10

thanks for showing us your brilliant animals.

0:11:100:11:12

Do you have an amazing pet? Why don't you get in touch?

0:11:120:11:16

We'd love to hear from you.

0:11:160:11:17

Just grab a grown-up, go to the CBeebies website

0:11:170:11:20

and click on The Let's Go Club to find out how you can get in touch.

0:11:200:11:24

And why don't you find out how you can swap

0:11:240:11:27

your club wristband for one of these? A Blue Peter badge!

0:11:270:11:31

That reminds me, it's Club Reporters time.

0:11:310:11:33

Today, Zaiba and Aidan are helping out in the Blue Peter garden.

0:11:330:11:38

-I'm Zaiba.

-I'm Aidan.

0:11:420:11:45

-And we're reporting from the Blue Peter garden.

-Let's go!

0:11:450:11:49

Planting things in summer will make the garden look colourful.

0:11:570:12:01

Today, we're helping George the gardener.

0:12:070:12:10

-I can see George, what is he digging?

-Let's go and have a look.

0:12:100:12:15

-Ah, hello.

-Hello, George, what are you doing?

0:12:150:12:18

-So, I'm digging a hole to put a fruit in.

-What fruit is going to grow?

0:12:180:12:22

-These are strawberries so you'll get a lovely, red, sweet berry.

-OK!

0:12:220:12:27

We're making a pea wigwam.

0:12:300:12:33

The wigwam is made from sticks and string.

0:12:350:12:39

The wigwam will turn green as the peas grow.

0:12:390:12:42

What's your favourite thing to do in gardening?

0:12:460:12:49

Well, I like it, it brings me close to nature.

0:12:490:12:52

Also, you can make delicious things with things you grow,

0:12:520:12:56

like these lovely smoothies.

0:12:560:12:58

That was our report from the Blue Peter garden.

0:13:050:13:08

Now back to the clubhouse!

0:13:080:13:09

-Oh, I love the Blue Peter garden.

-Me too, I really DIG gardening.

0:13:170:13:21

Ohhh! Martin, honestly.

0:13:210:13:23

Perfect. We're all ready for the Club Dance.

0:13:230:13:26

I hope you're ready. Come on, join in at home.

0:13:260:13:29

Don't forget to throw in your cool moves.

0:13:290:13:31

0:14:420:14:45

and click on The Let's Go Club.

0:14:450:14:47

And find out how, if you're six or over,

0:14:470:14:49

you can swap one of these, for one of these!

0:14:490:14:53

We are the club that never closes.

0:14:530:14:55

Bye!

0:14:570:14:59

Today in the clubhouse we're going wild about animals!

Let's Goers Magnus and Faria meet some super-furry alpacas, then help muck out their shelter, give them some vitamins and take them for a walk. Club reporters Aiden and Zaiba catch up with our CBBC friend George the Gardener, then help him plant strawberries and peas in the Blue Peter garden. And there are prehistoric animated facts about roar-some dinosaurs.

Our CBeebies friend Ferne from My Pet And Me visits the clubhouse to meet Let's Goer Kitty and Lexi the lizard. And Kirsten has a brand new, beak-pecking Cool Move - the Funky Chicken!

Plus everyone's favourite singing and dancing with the high-energy Get Set, Let's Go! song and the boogie-brilliant Club Dance.
