Wild Animals from Around the World

(audience cheering wildly) Very excited. I can’t wait to see what a wild dog looks like. You’re gonna see. Okay, I think I’ve seen them before outside. Nyah, it’s a different kind of wild dog. Okay, well, I love when our next guest stops by, he always has animals, he’s made me animal-friendly, He’s seduced me with the animal world, say hello to Dave Mizejewski! (audience clapping) Hey, Wendy (chuckling). I–
Dave– I love your fashion as always, and everybody in the audience wearing your animal, faux fur prints, I like to see that.
Yes yes, okay– So, so here’s the deal, the National Wildlife Federation, my organization, we’re partnering on that new film, “Dolittle” with Robert Downey Junior– I know, I heard! (audience clapping) Really awesome, and so the movie has a lot of CG animals voice by lots of stars, and so our message is that everybody can be a voice for wildlife. Now are you part of this movie, like in terms of advising them behind the scenes? Exactly, yeah
So you met Robert Downey Junior? I did, I just interviewed him. So watch my social media and you’ll see an interview that I do with him about wildlife conservation and what this is all about. Okay
So everybody out there, you all can be a voice for wildlife with the Nation Wildlife Federation. Google Dolittle and you’ll find out how to do that. We got lots of easy tips to save wildlife, so–
(audience clapping) Okay.
Let’s bring out our first animal
Okay, okay. So, our first animal is going to have a little bit of a dramatic entrance. Oh gosh
So And away we go.
Ryan, yeah. So this is Hyacinth Macaw, this is a South American Parrot species. You can come closer, it’s safe. You guys actually kind of match today almost. Hey, girl.
So all of the animals (audience laughs)
I’m gonna bring out have different ways of communicating, just like the animal characters in the film. So parrots, if anybody has ever owned a pet parrot, you know they communicate with their voice, they could be super loud. This is a species that also is declining rapidly in the wild. Deforestation–
I heard that the other day, I was watching it on the um, mm– It’s a big problem, deforestation. Also the pet trade, so if you’re gonna get a pet, make sure you get one that is bred in captivity. I honestly think you should stick with dogs or cats versus getting something like this, because it’s much easier for you to take care of, so–
I like your bracelet, girl. (Dave chuckles) So this Hyacinth Macaw is from the National– Was she–
National Aviary in Pittsburgh, you can go visit them, really great conservation work that these guys are doing. (audience clapping)
She’s just eating nuts and snacks.
Is that a boy or a girl, though?
This is a girl. Can I touch her? Actually we can’t touch.
Okay. with that big beak, they could chop. All right our next animal
Oh no Is another animal that you might be a little bit freaked out by because it’s a rodent, (audience oohs and ahhs)
but– They’re outside, too, oh gosh, please, really? (Dave and audience chuckle) But wait wait, I want you to look at how beautiful this animal’s– That’s a pretty rodent
Yeah, look at the beautiful–
The spotting. Shades, this is called a paca. You can gently pet on the back here. It’s kind of like a relative of the Guinea Pig, also native to South America. (Wendy groans)
These guys, they don’t make– (audience laughs)
Now look-a here, rat-face. Now let’s see–
(Dave and audience laugh) Where’s your tail?
They don’t have a tail. They don’t have a tail. They actually communicate, they make little grunting noises. And they communicate with scent, so they leave urine trails in the wild. (audience laughs)
Not on you! And so not all animals communicate with their voice, but they use their other senses. (Wendy whimpers)
And so this cute little paca is just–
How old? doing its thing out in nature. This is a full-grown adult, and they live probably five to 10 years in the wild, so — Would you advise somebody to get one — No, these are not pets.
of those for their kids? And by the way, I have this on a leash, this is for safety of the animal, this is not an animal that should be a pet. This is an animal that lives in the zoo with proper care, like all the animals that I’m bringing on today. (audience claps enthusiastically) I always look at your hands when you come here, because you never have bite marks. Well because, again, I know what I’m doing, and I’ve handled animals. This next one, though —
Oh God! might actually give me a scratch. Oh gosh.
(Dave chuckles) Really, really, really cool lizard species! (audience oohs and ahhs) So this is called a–
It’s really pretty, though. It’s called a prehensile tailed skink. Touch that tail–
I will. And it’ll curl around you a little bit, Oh no! So they use that tail as a fifth limb. Let’s see if it sticks its tongue out, that’s how–
(Wendy moans) this animal communicates. It’s one of the only social lizards out there. Most lizards, they live solitary lives, this species lives in —
Can I touch? family groups, you can pet it, yep. Ohh.
Its not slimy, right? Cold not slimy,
Yeah. So this is really, they communicate by smell, they smell each other, they can identify their family members, the mothers take care of the babies, really neat. By the way, this species is from Australia. Yeah?
This is, everyone’s heard — Oh My Gosh!
About the Australian fire — The fires have killed so many animals! So, yeah, so the climate change is fueling that. These animals —
You escaped, girl! are burning up as well as all the koalas, and everything else. The National Wildlife Federation is really focused on fighting climate change, again, we need all of your help, and all of your voices so that these animals do not burn to death,
(audience cheering) and have a horrible, yeah. So we got a few more animals, let’s bring out–
Well these are the calm animals, ’cause normally you tell my co-host, “Don’t clap,” because it scares the animals. Yeah, a lot of animals can–
Can get very spooked– What’s that, a hedgehog? Yeah, this is a–
It’s not blue! It’s not blue, in real life, hedgehogs are not blue. Oh.
This is a hedgehog, like you said, this is actually a domesticated hedgehog. So it is something that people can get as a pet, you can touch.
Oh, pointy. They’re prickly, and so, again, these animals don’t make a lot of noise, but they communicate with body language. So if a hedgehog is scared, it can roll into a ball, and all these little prickly spines will protect it. Protects them. So again with animals, a lot of it is not what they say or what noise they make, it’s what their body language is. Yeah.
And so this little guy is really comfortable– I see, he’s not ballin’ up.
Just hangin’ out here. Yeah, exactly, I wanna get to our last two animals–
Hi, Sonic. because they’re pretty amazing. So our last two animals are essentially endangered in the wild. Would this be the wild dog?
These are the wild dogs. So these are New Guinea Singing Dogs. And they are an ancient, ancient dog breed. Have you heard of a dingo, from Australia? Yes. So these guys, hey sweetie, these pups are– Are they related?
Yeah, they’re siblings, and they’re very similar to dingoes. They are an ancient domesticated breed, but that has gone back to the wild, so they look adorable, they are like puppies, but they are not domesticated dogs, and they are called singing dogs, because they sometimes howl, and they have a unique frequency to their howl, it’s how they communicate. Hi.
(puppy whines) Oh, I’m sorry–
(Wendy gasps) He doesn’t like the look of me, Aww.
But at any rate, these guys are extremely, extremely rare. Yes, you can pet, they’re very, very gentle. There ya go, see?
Hi, honey. Aww, sweetie.
{puppy yelps loudly) Oh oh, whoa, whoa
All right, Dave. You’re okay, you’re okay. You and your band of merry men. Maybe not, maybe he didn’t like your vibe, but at any rate,
(audience laughs) there we go.
‘Cause she smells the cats– It’s all better– she smells Chit Chat and My Way. It’s all better, yeah. So at any rate, everybody out there, we need for you to be a voice for wildlife, go to nwf.org/dolittle, get involved protecting these wild animals with National Wildlife Federation, And go see the movie, “Dolittle,” too. Yes, please!
(audience clapping) Dave Mizejewski, everybody! (vibrant soul music)

  2. Climate change is fueling that?! Wtf. 183 people have been arrested for starting the brush fires in Australia. Disgraceful.

  3. Here is an idea. Why not leave the wild animals in the wild…can you imagine being taken from your natural habitat by some strange looking species just to be transported for show and tell. Guess the best thing is at least they aren't put to work

  4. Wendy yo vibe of slandering people carries an unpleasant spirit even amongst the animal world! ๐Ÿ˜น๐Ÿ˜น๐Ÿ˜น๐Ÿ˜น๐Ÿ˜น

  16. I'm sorry but hedgehogs make an immense amount of noise sometime, I live in the UK and we have a fair amount of them… ours are bigger and brown to be fair but if one ever gives birth (or gets pregnant) in your garden you will think someone is murdering a toddler… here is a list of all the noises they make with examples: http://hedgehog-rescue.org.uk/sounds/noises.php
