And what does that mean? -Yeah, well, beaut bonza just means amazing. -Just terrific. -Okay. -It’s the best you can be. -The best you can be? -Beaut bonza. -So I’m beaut bonza. -Yeah. Exactly. -Yeah, me too. Yeah, me too! -Well done! -Thank you very much. -You’re getting the hang of it. -I appreciate that. -Yeah. -Last time we had you on, man, oh, man, it was — It went — spread like wildfire on Facebook.54 million people watched you on — -I know. That was incredible. Thank you. -I mean — -Yeah, it was such an honor to be on the show, but then one of the friends that was traveling with us at the time, he kept going, “Look! It’s up to 10 million! Look! It’s at 20 million!” And it was just an incredible experience for me. -That’s fun, right? -Thank you so much for having me back. -Oh, no, yeah, people love you. They love you.I love you. And you’re smart. You know what you’re talking about. – Thank you! -Which is great, but, also, you look — A lot of the viewers said how much you look like your dad. -Oh, thank you so much. -And you really do. -You’re a spitting image. -Aw, thanks. -He’d be so proud. -Thank you so much. -But your mom posted a photo of your dad when he was your age and you.Look at this. You won’t believe this. -Yeah, it’s a bit wild. -I mean, that’s — That’s wild. -Yeah. -I mean, do you — do you even realize how much you look like your dad or…? -Yeah, well, when — when my mum first showed this to me, I thought it was me. -I-I can’t tell them apart. -Yeah. -And I said, “It’s me. What’s the big deal?” And until you look at Dad’s shirt, you don’t even realize that it’s two different people. -You’re like, “I wouldn’t wear that.” – Yeah. -“That’s too psychedelic for me, man.” Yeah. All right. So, you brought some animals and creatures here tonight. -Yes, we have. -Let’s bring them out. -What did you bring? What did you bring to scare me with tonight? -All right. So, first up, we have Jane. -Is that a man? Oh, no, okay, okay. -And Jane… -Okay. Oh, no, no, no. -…is a dictator scorpion. -See? Nah, nah, nah. -And Jane is absolutely amazing.And you’re welcome to come close. She’s very calm. She’s really nice. She’s actually quite friendly. -No, that’s impossible. It’s a scorpion. How could a scorpion be friendly? Well, she’s curling her tail. That means something, right? -Yeah. Well, that tail actually contains her venom. She’s got quite a bit of venom. And they actually inject that venom to kill their prey. And isn’t she just magnificent? -She’s curling it up. She’s getting it — She’s, like, balling her fist, ready to go. -Yeah, but if you look closely, see those little hairs along her little little pinchers? -Yeah. -And it’s interesting ’cause the bigger the pinchers, the less venomous they are, but if they have smaller pinchers, that means they pack a lot of venom. It’s pretty interesting, isn’t it? -I don’t know how you’re that calm.I mean, it’s real, right? That’s really moving. I don’t like that. -Yeah. Oh, yeah, definitely. -That thing frightens me. -Absolutely. -They’re so cool. They’re actually nocturnal, as well. -They hunt at night. -Oh, perfect. -Yeah. -Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah. I run into that thing at night. Get this thing out of here, please. -It’s beautiful. -Okay. No worries. -Thank you. What a beautiful creature. -Yeah, they’re gorgeous. Thank you. -Ahh. Don’t you have anything cute? -Well, this — this animal is a little bit more cute. So, how about you come around in front of the desk? -Okay.Okay. -All right. Okay. So, let’s bring out our next animal. -I want you to sit down. -Okay. -All right. Ready? -Yeah. These — These are baby black bears. -Oh, my God. -Aren’t they beautiful? Oh, don’t — don’t — don’t do that. -Don’t do that. -Ah! Ooh! Ow! -You can — You can let — You can let him go. You can let her go. There you go. -All right. This is a baby bear? -I think she’s kind of just chewing on — She’s chewing on your thumb a little bit. -Yeah, she definitely was chewing on my thumb. -Absolutely. -They’re so funny. So, these baby bears are kind of hyperactive when they’re little.They love exploring. -How old are they? -Well, these ones actually are only a couple months old. They will get quite a bit larger than this, though. Oh, sorry, sorry. Sorry about that. -Let’s not get them angry. Yeah, yeah. -They’re really special. Now, these guys are actually omnivores. So they’ll eat meat, and they’ll also eat vegetables. – -Don’t chew on the wire. -No, don’t chew that. -Do they eat — No. They’re omnivores, so they eat both vegetables -and meat, as well? -Yeah, yeah, they do. They love flowers and little berries and things like that. -No, don’t do — -He’s very cute. How big will they get? -Well, this one could actually get maybe up to about 300 pounds. So they can get quite large. -Please remember me, okay? Please. Yeah. When you get older. Oh, that is fantastic. -Oh, look at this one climbing on my back. -They’re really cute. Come here. What is that one called? -This one is — This one is D-9.-Kind of sounds like a rapper. -D-9? Yeah, it does. -D-9. Oh, hi, D-9. -Yeah. -All right. And what’s this guy’s name? -And, so, this one here — No, don’t chew Jimmy. -It’s all right. It’s okay. -All she wants to do is just chew you. -Aww. -And this one is Flo. Flo is really cute. She’s got a great name. Oh, aren’t they gorgeous? -That was the closest I ever came to a bear. This is so cool. All right. I’m going to — Yeah, I want to — -So, do you want to — -I survived this. So I’m happy about this. -All right, okay, okay. I think it’s time for you guys to head off. -Bye, guys. Thank you. -What nice bears. -Have fun. Bye, D-9. -Bye! Thank you.-Whew! -Aren’t they hilarious? -That was a big step for me. Yeah, they are cute. -They’re so funny. -All right. I love the cute animals. -Yeah, well, next up, we — we — We have another cute animal for you. -Okay, good. -And they have very cute names, as well. -This is Lulu and Fluffy. -Fluffy and Lulu, good. -Now, the — I know what you’re thinking. They’re not snakes. Don’t worry. They’re — They’re all good. They’re actually legless lizards. So, these legless lizards — -That’s not Lulu and Fluffy at all. -Yeah, Lulu and Fluffy. -I think that’s D-9. -You want to hold Fluffy? -Oh, my gosh. -You’re welcome to hold him. He loves being held. -I really don’t want to hold these things.-There you go. Oh, good job! -Oh, gosh! What are these things? They’re not — They’re snakes. -No, they’re legless lizards. And you can tell the difference… -I’m an idiot. -You can tell the — Whoa. You can tell the difference — -Legless lizards? This one’s not moving. -You can see those little ears there. He actually has ears. Snakes don’t have ears. So that’s one of the biggest reasons why — how you can actually tell the difference. They’re really special. -He — Why — It feels like he’s gonna strike or something. Why is he staring at me? -He won’t strike. It’s all good. I think he’s just trying to work out what you’re doing. It’s okay. You’ll be fine. -What — What should I be doing? -Uh. -What — I mean, I’m holding him. -Just hold still. He’s actually quite calm.-Well, I’m — -And you’ll be fine. -We’re both stiff as a board. We’re, like, freaked out right now. The heck? The heck is — -You want me to take him off you? -Yes! I want you to take him away from me. -There you go. -Gosh, that was awkward. Don’t make me do that — Don’t make me do that again. -They’re so cool, aren’t they? -No, these are the creepiest things — -They’re so much fun. They actually — -Where do they live? -They — These ones live — -In the water. They surprise you in the pool. -No, no, they live in Europe. These are the European legless Lizards. -Oh, well. -And they can grow quite large. They can get up to about 3 feet in length. -Oh, God! -And they’ll — they’ll eat little insects and little eggs and things like that. -Little insects? Yeah. -Yeah, so they’re kind of just like a lizard, but obviously don’t have any legs. -This is cool. -All right. -I had my good experience with these guys. -Awesome. -Bye, Fluffy. Fluffy and Lulu. -Yeah, Fluffy and Lulu. Thank you. -Fluffy and Lulu. -Yeah, they’re very special.-All right, already, I’m, like, freaking out. This is — This is like a stress test for me. Yeah. All right. -So, we — we’ve got another special animal coming up. -Okay. -This — Oh! This is actually a binturong. This is Orville, and he is so cute. Now come on your hands and knees, just like this, and then let him smell your head, because the way… …the way that they get introduced to other things… …they smell your head. Just — Just put your head down like this. -This is now — This is insane. -That’s how they recognize who you are. -For me, this is like sky diving, for me. -It’s all good. -I don’t — I don’t like this. Oh, no! -You’ll be fine. -Oh, no. Oh, no. Hi, Orville. -Hey there, you want to smell Jimmy’s head? -Orville? is everything cool? -Oh, wonderful. He loves you. -He does? I mean — I — -He loves you. -This toupee might be one of Orville’s family. -Now, I’m gonna give you a grape. -Okay. -He loves grapes. -Oh, it’s for Orville. -Yeah, no, not for you. -It’s like, I’m on hands and knees, and he’s feeding me grapes. This animal’s from Brooklyn, New York — he’s a talk show host. -Look, there you go. Jimmy’s got a grape for you. -Here we go. Orville. -There you go. -Hi, Orville. Over here, buddy, look. Hi. -Oh, awesome. -Hi, buddy. -Well done. -So he eats grapes? Where does he hang out? -He does.So, this one’s actually from Southeast Asia. And they love those rainforest areas, but my favorite thing about this — my favorite thing about them is that they smell like popcorn. -It’s amazing. -They do? -So if you smell him, he actually smells like popcorn. -He’s whispering — He’s whispering to me, “Please don’t tell anybody I smell like popcorn.” He’s — He does smell — -You want another grape? -He does smell like — -There you go. -Yeah, he does smell like burnt popcorn or Fritos or something. Yeah, like Fritos, exactly. -Fritos, he does, yeah. -Yeah, well done. -And does he — now — you would — where does he — Like, does he burrow in the ground? Does he climb in trees? -No, he’s up in trees.And you see this tail there. That’s called a prehensile tail. So that acts as sort of like another limb to help him climb. It’s really amazing. -Yeah, I was going to say — it looked like a — a prehensile tail. -Yeah, you would have been correct, yes. -I was gonna guess that. -Well, thank you, Orville. -Bye, Orville. -Thank you so much. -What a cute name for Orville, yeah. -Bye, Orville. -Bye, does — he know hows to get off? -See you later. Yep, there we go. -I love him. -Oh. Awesome. -All right. -All right, so… for the next animal, we’ve got a really special bird from the National Aviary. -Okay. -And I’ve invited three of The Roots to come down to give us a hand. So, how about we head down here? -Yes, we’ll head over here.-We’ve — We’ve got Kathy here, as well. -Oh, I do want to mention, the australiazoo.com — there’s a thing called “Crikey Club” that you’re starting.

So, this… -Where did that — How did that happen? That was awesome. – Isn’t this incredible? So, this is actually a green aracari.And the aracaris are a species of toucan. So, aren’t they amazing? -Oh, man. -They live in South America. -Beautiful. -They’re one of the smallest species of toucan. They’re very inquisitive. -Yeah. -But they’re amazing at picking fruit from trees. And I’m gonna display that in one second. So, would you be able to put out your hand for a second? -Do you have Froot Loops in Australia? -Ready? We do, yeah. -You do? -Look at that! Oh! You’re doing so well.Isn’t that incredible?
