HOWLING Guys, nonsense? You have to stop, you're


scaring the animals. Not to mention everybody at home. We're talking


wolf. You boys can speak wolf? Big time. Don't do it again. Well, one


of them's a little peckish, but the general consensus is... It's time to


go Wild. Hello and a huge welcome to Wild. We


are back! APPLAUSE


I'm Naomi Wilkinson. I'm Tim. I'm Radzi. This is the show that aims to


get you off the sofa and get active. Radzi, tell the good people where we


are, using the Wild map. We are about here in Dartmoor Zoo. We are


indeed. We have a quiver of guests here and we'll start with the man, a


wheelie good guest. It's unicycling champion Kevin Callaby, everybody.


We have the MBE stunt team for BMX who are warming up there. There they


are. Awesome. You've heard them already, it's our Wild audience.


CHEERING That sounds like a lot. That's not


the half of it. We get up close and personal with two tigers at


breakfast time. Our Wild things find out what it's like when you turn the


light out in a cave. Radzi and I feel the need for speed, when we


race at street luge. Find out who's victorious later on. It was me. It


was me. I'll give you a clue t was me You can find out later on. We are


on the screens until Ten O'Clockam. A whole hour with live TV. Who knows


what will happen? We are at Dartmoor Zoo and I found my favourite animal.


Look at this guy. Are you all right? He drew blood. As you can see, we


are surrounded by extraordinary animals, so we'll look at all of


them. Dartmoor Zoo is home to many animals, all hidden here, from small


Erez dents like the baby meerkats, to bigger ones, like the bears.


There's also a three species of big cat, including a playful cheetah and


check out these characters, their coati, members of the racoon family.


Plus there are capybara and a clever bird of prey who we'll see more of


later. Can you believe this, I'm going to learn to speak with the


animal that frightened Little Red Riding Hood. Bashful, Doc, Sleepy.


There is an animal. One of the three bears, daddy bear. I don't think


you're supposed to be here. I don't know why I'm going that way. Let


down your hair. Just before I meet the woflds, we'll see what life is


like for them out in the wild. There are many different species


of wolves, from Iberian to Timber, And, at one time,


they were even found Grey wolves are


the world's largest wild canine, and are highly social creatures that


live in packs that do everything They are carnivores that eat big


game, such as elk and moose, and use their keen sense of smell,


hearing and eyesight to track their prey with a pack sometimes


walking 30 miles a day! And with jaws so powerful that they


can crush the bones of their catch. Yes, here we are in front of the


enclosure. We have three grey wolves and this is Shaun Ellis. Lovely to


have you with us. You don't just look after wolves, you consider


yourself to be part of the pack? Yeah. The research that we do and


the education is very important for us to become part of their family.


This is very unusual. You and your wife actually go into the enclosure


with them. We can see you interacting with them. If I were to


go in like this, the reaction would be very different? Yeah. It's quite


the opposite to what people imagine. The wolves are more afraid of you


than you should be of them. They will move away from you. You're not


afraid? You've built up a bond? We have different roles, me and Kim and


male and female and then there is the calm and energy within the pack


and my favourite is looking after the pups like a nanny. Lovely. What


an incredible job you do. We have some of our Wild audience up here.


You have a question. Yeah. How different are the wolves to our


normal pet dogs? Really good question. They look resimilar. We


think there's a very close connection. Kim and I work closely


with their behaviour and connected to the wolves, so we think there's a


strong connection. You have been teaching me and these guys how to do


a wolf howl, so we're going to give it a go and see if the wolves


respond to us at all. Are you all ready? Here we go. Three, two, one.


HOWLS Keep going. Keep going. They're


coming over. HOWLING


It's actually working. It's working. What are they saying? We briefed the


guys earlier and they've got their own signature howls. Everybody is an


individual and we give them locating howls. So we don't give their howls,


but they're howling to all the other packs. I don't know if you can pick


it up, but the wolves all over the zoo have started howling back. It's


like picking up the phone and calling a friend. What is your


question? How many wolves are in a pack? Really good question. Can you


hear us over the howling? About eight or nine. European wolves,


which are our native wolf, about four to five. Not so many? No. Over


to you Ashley. Why are the wolves the bad guys in stories? Good


question. Much of it is based on the sound you heard. It's every horror


movie that children ever see. They are the most maligned creature. They


have got high cultures. This is incredible. We have set them off all


around the zoo. It's eerie. Good job. You started that off. You are


working so closely with them. Are you still finding new things out


about them all the time? Every moment of every day, the guys teach


us something knew and we need to help them in the wild. Your job is


so interesting. We think so. Brilliant. Thank you.


We are delighted to know that loads of you have been going completely


wild over your summer holidays and wild over your summer holidays and


someone who knows all about that is Radzi. Brand new for series two, is


this, our Wild Wall, which by the end of the series will be


this, our Wild Wall, which by the all of your photographs of you


getting up and going wild. Like Abbey and Amelia, who are body


boarding. We have Tessa and Abbey. They are white-water rafting in


Nepal. They are the happiest people of all time. Benedict's walking


among the caves and the man who is king of the castle is Cameron. He's


climbing that rock. Everyone does look happy. Most of the people do


these and look like they're having the time of their life and we want


to fill the wall. If you've been doing something


to fill the wall. If you've been and send it to us here.


You might have spotted it. This. You might have seen it on the website.


You might have spotted it. This. You It's all part of our Wild Challenge.


You've been sending in your guesses. Maybe Tim in the bath before he has


his make-up done. A few thought it might be Hacker or Dodge. I think it


might be Tim after the make-up. Some of you think it might be a pelican


and pandas. It could be a sea lion. If you have a guess, let us know by


leaving your comment at the website. Radzi. How did this picture of Kim


get on our Wild wall? I think I know the answer. He has gone and put it


there. Always wild and meeting lots of wild people. Just like this lot.


BMX, using bumps for jumps. Leo and the team specialise in freestyle


using ramps to throw down impressive tricks. They are here in the flesh.


We have got the MBE team and you are watching Connor. Beautiful turndown.


You see that. All cranked up in the air. We have three of the UK's


finest professional BMXers. Leo there. Proper moto-style on that.


This is Jay. Another nice turn. We'll get Leo Forte over here.


They've set this up. It came in the track and all folded down. Leo


Forte. Round of applause. You are a professional BMXer. I would think of


worse jobs. If there are kids out there that want to get into it, how


do they go about it? There are loads of skate parks and tracks all over


the country, so the best thing to do is find your local one and get


involved. It doesn't have to be a setup like this, concrete or even a


racetrack? That's where you started? Yeah. The tracks are good platforms


to start on, but whether it's a skate park, pump track, anything,


you have to start somewhere, so best thing is to get down and get


involved. There you are. We want to see a little more from you. You look


very, shall we say, competent on your bike, so we'll have another


look. Nice and silky smooth. Yes. Massive on that quarter pipe at the


end. Here's Liam. Let's get Connor over. This is Connor Hellier, the


Lewis Hamilton of UK and BMXing. You are the world record holder for the


highest indoors. Yes. 6.8 metres. It's like me jumping over the roof


of my house? Yes. Were you scared? Pretty much. You don't need latest


fancy BMX. If you want to get out there, how do you go about it? Get a


bike and helmet and start having fun. There you go. Safety doesn't


take a day off. Remember the helmet. You have a camera up there so get up


there and we'll see your point of view. It might even be working


actually, but it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. You can see Connor


here. He finishing with a backflip. How amazing is that? Earn your money


here. Fantastic stuff. Just incredible. Big round of applause


for MBE. From one pack of animals that are fearless and like leaping,


but these guys aren't so good on bikes.


Tigers are the world's largest cats, and are found in a variety


of places, from tropical forest to grass jungles.


Although, due to hunting and loss of habitat, their numbers have been


Their stripes provide vital camouflage in the wild,


and are as individual to a tiger as fingerprints are to you and me.


And, unlike your regular house cat, they love water,


They are powerful hunters, and can travel many miles to find


their prey that they sneak up on and attack with a final fatal pounce!


You can see we are in front of the tiger enclosure. And it is empty.


That is about to change, because we are going to let them out. Please,


release the Tigers! Are they coming straight out? Colin, you are their


keeper, what a special job. This is Stripe, she is a female. And, just


coming out now, her brother. They have gone straight for the food. How


often does this happen? We feed them every other day.


They are massive. It does look like their skin does not fit them.


The only feed every three, four, or five days. When they do, they gorge


themselves, so they need a bit of expansion to fill up.


Some of our audience would like to ask you some questions.


How strong are their jaws? They are extremely strong. If you


imagine biting into a big leg bone. Which is what he is doing right now.


Good grief! You can see, he is demonstrating how


strong he is. If you did that, you would break


your teeth. When he does that, he breaks the bone.


As your question? How high can a Tiger leap?


Four meters. How high is the cage? The fence is five metres.


There is an overhang to keep them in.


You can see how tall he is, eating that food. Incredible creature.


Charlie? Who would win in a battle, a line or a Tiger?


Who do you think? I'm not sure, a line is a mighty


predator, but a Tiger has the element of surprise.


Because they are camouflaged? What is the answer?


My answer would be a Tiger. Why is that?


Lions hunt in a pride, one animal captures the prey, the others rely


on it. A Tiger works alone. It has to be


super efficient at killing. Straight for the kill, no messing.


They are beautiful, their patent firm is beautiful. You said


something quite fascinating. If you shaved it off, to their skin,


they are still striped. A fantastic fact. Thank you for


speaking to us. Lovely to meet you.


And next, we have another group of totally Wild Things who

Here on Wild, we hunt high and low to bring you the best


This time, we are in beautiful County Fermanagh


Reika is 10 years old and loves the great outdoors.


And now, she wants to get her friends involved.


She's probably one of the shyest out of all four of us.


But I think she's going to have to keep a little torch on or something,


she is not fond of sleeping in the dark.


It is certainly going to be dark where our team are heading.


Part of the Marble Arch Caves Geopark, a massive network of

It's also really important to go with someone who


Enter expert Pam who is taking our Wild Things


Into the cave, explore it, find a campsite, nice and flat.


Cook tea, get into your sleeping bags


They may be leaving daylight behind, but there is still plenty


We are starting to see stuff, look over there.


Do you know what those are from the roof?


They are really special, we are lucky to see them.


Sleeping overnight isn't usually allowed in these caves.


Our Wild Things have been given special permission.


It looks like they have found the perfect place to set up camp and get


It's the first time I've been so deep in a cave.


It's really exciting having dinner in a cave.


That is base camp and dinner sorted, so what is next?


The last thing we are going to do is explore the cave.


Megan, do you want to go first and find a good way through?


The caves here at Marble Arch have taken millions of years to form,


but our Wild Things have only one night to explore as much of them


Remember, help each other if it is a scramble.


Have you ever been anywhere where there has been no light at all?


Do you think we could try turning our lights


The girls may not be able to see anything,


but luckily our crew has a night vision camera to follow the action.


Don't forget, for our Wild Things, this is all happening


A bit scary because you have no idea where you are going,


Let's turn our lights on, and see how far we got.


All the way from the far end, right up to the main passage.


Exploration over, it is time to bed down for the night.


At least, I think it is night, hard to tell down here.


I feel like a caterpillar in my sleeping bag.


With no sunrise, it is going to be very hard to know


But, after eight hours fast asleep underground,


It was nice, you could hear all the echoes.


There is just time for a spot of brekkie, before they pack up


And there is even a shower for a quick freshen-up.


It was so much fun, it may sound scary but we get in


and used to the dark, it is so much more fun than it seems.


We went wild! enjoyed it, I know they did.


Hats off to you, that took serious guts. We were impressed.


We all love animals and their Wild ways.


Some may have more appeal than others.


Some get a bad name and plenty push the laws of nature to its limits!


So, this series, we're putting a different animal on trial each week.


Our Critter Court will be presided over by the


jury made up of a dozen honorable audience members.


You look awesome! You do look amazing.


Each animal will be accused of a crime, and we will examine


At the end of each trial, the jury will consider


Should there be a hung jury, it will be decided by the Right Honourable


Judge Radzi. He will deliver the verdict,


and the critter Mrs Cuckoo,


you stand before us today charged with being a home wrecker,


a petty thief and... A murderer. Would you please outline the case?


Absolutely. My case notes are here. Mrs Cuckoo,


I put it to you that you're lazy On the 13th April of this year,


you are accused of deliberately lying in wait near this nest


of reed warblers in Suffolk. Ready to sneak in once the female


left the nest, to lay your own egg. And, what's more, you even went to


the trouble of making it look like a reed warbler egg, to trick the


returning mother who didn't notice! I have some evidence, here.


Where is my evidence? Scrambled eggs, anyone!


Actually, that's not devious, it's common sense.


Why bother to build a nest when you can take advantage


And, let's face it, there are plenty of warblers.


But cuckoo numbers have been crashing.


My client was able to lay 20 eggs this spring all over the place,


far more than she could have squeezed into a single nest!


I would like to bring in a witness, if I made?


Bring in the witness. This is a barn owl, a very wise barn


owl. Like the cuckoo, the barn owl does not build its own nest. Rather


than taking the nest, this takes advantage of hollows in which to


make its nest, a wise move from a white owl.


Come on, seriously, you making me look stupid. This is a silent


witness, my Lord. Don't leave me hanging. Sorry. Cheers. Any more


points? I've just screwed up that. ProechSism. Let me speak. You didn't


stop there, did you, because actually I have more evidence,


because once your egg had hatched the chick threw out all of the other


reed warbler chicks. Then it proceeded to gobble up all the food


for his self that the parents brought along. Yes, yes. Look at the


size of it. It grew bigger than the nest itself. It's bigger than the


parents. It's supersized on all the food. Objection. How could this bird


do that? There's no room for anyone else and this chick needs its energy


and space and I'll tell you why - because they have to fly thousands


of miles to spend the winter in Africa and Asia and I put it to you


that those reed warbler parents weren't streeSed. They were too


stupid to notice what happened right under their beaks. Objection, my


Lord, she has no evidence to back that up. Sustained. You can only


refer to references you can actually proof. Like the stuff we've just


seen on the telly. The cuckoo is important because of its sound and


the animal heralds the start of spring. That's good. Although the


African cuckoo doesn't say cuckoo, it says pooh-pooh. Spring has


sprung, pooh-pooh. Pooh-pooh. Pooh-pooh. I mean order, order. It's


so unprofessional. You've described the cuckoo to be a bird that heralds


the start of spring and is vital in clocks so should be admired and


protected. Whilst, you have described the bird to be vindictive


cruel and a murderer. So jury, it is over to you. Do you believe the


cuckoo in question to be guilty or not guilty? Raise your paddles now.


It's a landslide. The cuckoo, I declare, has been innocent and not


guilty. Are you mad? Are you mad? I can only apologise. Justice has been


served. This court is closed. can only apologise. Justice has been


taking the batteries out of my clock now. You might have lost that


challenge, but will you lose this challenge when you and I went both


went wild. We'll let you be the judge.


We're in mid-Wales and I have a surprise in store. Look at that


Welsh countryside. How nice is that? But where is Tim? He said me to come


here to meet him. I've got everything I could possibly need.


Where is he? Tim? No, that's everything I could possibly need.


What are you wearing? Why aren't you ready? What for? We're having a go


at street luge. If I were you, I would wear something more


aerodynamic like me. Street luge is a gravity-powered extreme sport that


involves travelling down specialised courses, lying flat on a board with


six wheels. It's now an international phenomenon, and Will


Stevenson is the current British champion. Will, Tim, how do you do.


This is Radzi. What is that holding? It's 80mph downhill action.


There's no engine and holding? It's 80mph downhill action.


these. You said no brakes? There's a bit. You put your feet on the floor


to slow down. If you want to slow down. Wicked. I'm ready. Get the


helmet on and proper kit. That will tear apart in a second and you'll be


down to your skin and bone in no time. We'll get learges. --


leathers. With all the gear and no idea, Will teaches us all the basics


of street luge. How to brake. How to corner. And most importantly, how to


crash safely. I'm alive. What's next? We're going to take you boys


down the big hill now. Yes. Yes. We're going down. With the course


clear, Will introduces us to the racetrack, the Silverstone of street


luge. I'm coming off. No, I'm not! Corner. Oh, dear. That was awesome!


I'm going a million miles an hour. I think you're ready for a challenge.


I think it's a good time for you guys would be 30 seconds. You need


to get as close to that as you can. Up for it? I think I learned a bit


in training. I think whoever crashes is out. It will be you. Three times.


It might as well be four. You go first anyway. No, no, no. How will


we decide this? Stone, paper existors. One, two, three show. Here


we go. Yes, yes. Radzi's lost. Set the time


and I'll knock it straight out of the park. Race time, here we go.


Bring it on! On the starting grid today we have weighing the same as


two Welsh sheep he has momentum on his side but will the go-fast


stripes burn him out race ace Radzi has a strategy for speed, but will


his after troe aerodynamics hold him back? -- after fro airio dynamics


hold -- aerodynamics hold him back? I've got butterflies in my stomach.


He actually went pretty quick. That's the quickest he's gone off


the start here. And he's come out of the bottom pretty good. That looked


fast. The pressure's on me. Oh, no! That was intense. Fingers crossed


I've got close to that 30-second mark. The pressure's on. Radzi has


put down a clean run and all of a sudden, I wish I'd gone first.


He's going in fast. It's all about that second corner. Will he get the


correct line coming into that final left? It's the final sprint. Over


the line. How did we do? Fantastic. The amount of progress you did. I


was so impressed. Well done. Thank you very much. We have looked every


minute. Put us out of our misery. Radzi, 28.1. Sub-30. I'll take that.


Tim, you did it in 28. .52 That was so tight. 0.4 of a second.


That was rapid. To be honest... Did I lose that? I'm trying to compute


that in my head. You did, lose, mate, but to be honest. I'm


devastated. You know what, plenty of light left


in the day. Come on, best of three. Fine. Best of seven? Best of...


Let's just keep doing it. I can't believe you beat me. The boys wanted


me to tell you that that felt a whole lot faster than it looked, so


if you would like to have a go and who wouldn't, because it looks like


loads of fun, get in touch with your local expert, because it's crucial


that you do that safely, but between you and me Tim is really bitter


about losing that one. David, welcome to Wild. We're about to meet


this lovely biRleed, who wants to come out and say hello. She's


getting excited. She's quite vocal. Who's this? Wendy. Wendy is? She's a


caracara. He's a bird of prey. You can see her. She is trotting along


here on the ground. She's on the rail and it's unusual. Why is she


running along the rail? Because it's the way that they get a lot of their


food in the wild. They live in the Falklands and apart from anything


else, there are no trees there, so they'll spend their time among the


rocks, stones and the beach and little caves. They go all over the


place finding food. They'll eat just about anything. I can tell she's got


a mischievous personality, because she has raced on up ahead. We do


rehearse, so I think she's already learnt... She has gone to the beach.


We have created this mini beach and look, she has already got it. Her


personality is knowsy? Very. It's interesting how we know that birds


of prey sometimes are very specialised. We are the peregrine


falcon that flies at 150mph. This one, she is not specialised, but


knowsy and makes her living by being prepared to eat almost anything and


anywhere. She is looking anywhere and dragging things out of the way?


Yeah. Out in the wild in the Falklands she would be looking for


crabs under stones. All sorts of introvert greats. I think you've got


the best bits. She can use her feet, but she can fly too? Tremendous. She


is not agile, because there aren't trees. She doesn't need to be like a


hawk, but she's powerful. Conditions in the Falklands are extremely


tough. She has to go from one island to another, over large expanses of


open water. A bit of a scarf jeR. -- scanenger. It's got keys on. She is


a character though. What does she need to do? There we are. He knows


to pull the keys out and she has run off with the necklace. Thank you so


much, David. She's so entertaining. Wendy has shown us how to explore


the great outdoors and we are looking for new ways to do that.


Here's another one. Kevin has been riding unicycles


since the age of nine, but not content with flat ground, he uses


them to explore the great outdoors. Guys, this is so difficult. I didn't


think I would be... Why would you do that? Why do that? I can't unicycle,


but we are joined by a man who can, Kevin Callaby, everybody. Good


morning. APPLAUSE


It's nice to see you dry. You didn't hurt yourself, did you? No. Listen,


quick question - why one wheel and not two? Because that would be just


too easy. I like what you did there. How do you get into this? A long


time ago a saw a couple of guys riding on the news on the street and


playing hockey and I wanted one and my dad said what do you want for


Christmas and I said a unicycle. I've been riding ever since. Great


advert for pestering your parents for present. Did you hear that, if


you pester you'll get it? You take it everywhere. You are not content


with the roads. Absolutely anywhere. Anywhere you can stand. Forest,


paths, rivers, sandy cliffs, dust trails, anywhere. Stairs, skate


parks. Amazing. We have a selection of different unicycles. You are


going to be using this one today. This is more of a skate park, urban


free ride ands this one is for doing crazy, long distances on the road. I


don't think we'll want long distances or speed. Who wants to see


Kevin? Kevin makes this


indeed, as you would expect from a professional. Just look at that, the


balance on display. Oh! Wow! He is of! It just goes to show how hard


this is. He is backed up, though. And he is down!


this is. He is backed up, though. say it, you did that every single


time before. say it, you did that every single


I think I need to have a go. I have recruited some help because I


am not going to look silly on my own.


Go on, Radzi. I am doing this on my own!


I have talked Kevin everything he knows about a unicycle!


Thanks! This is hard.


Let me have a go. What is the key to this?


You need other people to hold onto! this?


Balance your hips forward, you said.


Nice and straight. Go on! I'm all right!


Ladies and gentlemen, Kevin Callaby! Come on over to the Wild Wall.


Thank you so much if you sent us a picture for our Wild Wall, we want


to cover it with your mouth activities. Send your pictures to


our website, www.bbc.co.uk/cbbc. Good on you!


This one is equally as fun, feeding a gear. Naomi, who are these


rascals? That is Tim and his fate. They


reckon they are the Ultimate Masters of Bushcraft!


We are the Ultimate Masters of Bushcraft!


Hi, welcome to Ultimate Masters of Bushcraft.


This is the show where we teach you how to master the outdoors, just


like us. how to master the outdoors, just


In this episode, we are going to teach you how to find shelter.


Yes! Honestly, they are not very good. To


see more of that, head to our website.


I just don't think they are masters, they are really not.


Not masters? Judge that when you look for yourself.


Are these pockets supposed to have something in them so you are


prepared? What is this animal here? It is an


Alsatian! No, it is not. We have had 200


comments. Lots of you have got it right.


Well done, shall we reveal the answer?


Colin, here we have a Capybara, like a giant guinea pig.


Essentially, that is what it is. It is the world's biggest rodent.


Like a rat. Do they have similarities?


They do, like a guinea pig, long, pointed teeth. They need to keep


those chewing on bark or sticks. I don't think it will let me show you.


There's teeth are growing all the time, they need to be constantly


worn down. They are eating fruit and veg. Tim


is feeding them. Are you getting on all right, good fun?


How cool is this? I can't figure out if they like me or if it is the


food. Do they have any differences?


Size is huge. If you look closely at the feet...


They are webbed! That is to help them swim, they are


extremely good. And to play. What sort of thing would they need


to escape from? Anaconda or Jaguar, one of their


defence mechanisms is to dive into the water. They would use it to


escape. And to hide under the surface.


And they have a face.


On the bridge of their nose, a shiny patch, which they use to mark their


territory on trees. And that is how they communicate


with each other. Thank you very much. I have met the


world Ness largest living rodent. Fantastic.


We've seen a few wild birds on today's show.


And now, I'm going to show you an inspiring and quite wild bird


feeder you can make out of ordinary things you can find in your kitchen.


You each get two minutes, a pile of sieves and ladles,


and some helping hands from our audience to make your own.


Come this way. The premise of a bird feeder is it contains bird food.


I have a ladle with water. Different types of measuring tens.


Apples. You can use nesting material.


This has different feed. The greater the variety, the greater the variety


of birds which will visit your garden. Which is what you want.


Tim? You are pouring tea. There is pure panic.


I have a plan. This is time to say there is also a forfeit for the


loser. And it is really scary, that is the glue.


We are halfway through. Naomi? It is filling up quickly.


I used a colander which is perfect to keep squirrels at bay. The holes


mean you can put string through. And look at the top. It is connected


to a branch. You can use fencing, what ever you have at your disposal.


It can be spread -- simple or more decorative.


Ten seconds left. Stop! Naomi, let us have a look at


yours? Lots of different food, different


utensils. That will feed a lot of birds.


And on your hands! Tim.


It is one ladle. I know what you're thinking. We have had a good idea.


When you have the pick and mix in a shop and you can't decide. Birds


will be confused, my birds get one choice!

Time for the part of the show where we meet someone who is passionate


about something. I'm 12 years old and I like all


kinds of wildlife, dead or alive. I've got all sorts of bones from


animals from all over the world. And I like doing it


because I think bones are unique, Quite a lot of people think


bones are morbid and about death. They say how the animal lived


its life, a healthy life, This probably looks like dead grass


but it's the quills from a hedgehog. I need to wear gloves for picking


up some bones, because it can be gruesome sometimes, they have not


fully decomposed to clean bones. This is the femur, the bone


attached from the hip to the knee. Come this way,


I have something to show you. The only reason you can tell


it is young because the back Usually it will have a big bit


on the end, this, when it is adult. Since it was


a child it is not fused. In another year it would have


fused on and not fall off. When I first find a skeleton,


I get really excited. The first thing I want to do is put


it in a bag, This is what it looks like


before it is cleaned. When I finish cleaning it, this


is what I want it to look like. I use a toothbrush to get


off the small bits of dirt. I put it in compost,


that helps rot the body. This is the baby seal I got


about a year ago. I'm currently working


on re-articulating it. Re-articulation is where you turn


a box of bones into a full Very sharp teeth.

to finish off a skeleton that I've Much more interesting to have


a full skeleton. I'm going to clear these bones


from the table. See if you can try


and guess what it is. Roger is


a red deer stag. I would love to re-articulate him,


but he's far too big at the moment. Bones and skeletons can not only


tell you how big an animal was, A great film, thank you. I never


knew you could learn so much from a pile of old bones.


All you have to do is have a nice sit down on this chair,


Let us see where Leo is at the top. Leo is a professional rider can he


knows what he's doing. He be flying down and knock the hat from his head


with his bike. How are you feeling about that?


Fine, bring it on. Why not even have a hat!


Leo was great in the demo. I must remind you, this is a highly skilled


trick, and should only be carried out by professional writers.


Take the wind into consideration! Leo, take it away.


Goodness! He had done it! He touched it.


Shall we give it another go, have we got time?


Shall we give it another go? We will all say a very big thank you


to everyone here at Dartmoor Zoo, thanked you for having us.


We are going again, go on, Leo! O!


I am alive! Thank you to all of our guests.


We must give an enormous thank you to Dartmoor


Kevin Callaby for entertaining us on one wheel.


And not forgetting our brilliant audience, both here,


Here's a taster of what's on Wild next Saturday, at 9am, CBBC.


And do not forget, if these guys want to learn about getting into the


outdoors, go to the website to see more Ultimate Masters of Bushcraft.


And send us more photos for our Wild Wall.


So, until we see you next week, get up, get out and go wild!


Next Saturday, our Wild Things put on their wet suits and learn to ride


some waves. We meet Emily who has an obsession


with some wobbly tentacled creatures.


And I find that there is more than just seaweed when I go snorkelling


with blue sharks. Don't miss it, it is going to be wild!


O, my
