  • And ah, she's really enjoying that.

  • She loves those sweet potato.

  • Sweet potato is like chocolate for wombats.

  • We're the Irwins.

  • And this is Australia Zoo.

  • Our dad Steve built this zoo

  • to protect our world'S wildlife.

  • Today we strive to carry on his mission.

  • So come with us, this is Wild Times.

  • This is Acco.

  • He is the largest saltwater crocodile at Australia Zoo

  • and at 16 feet in length and nearly half a ton,

  • he is a spectacular animal.

  • Crocs have been on the planet for over 200 million years.

  • They are dinosaurs.

  • If you look at him, he's built like a torpedo,

  • not like a greyhound.

  • So he's got these little legs, gigantic body,

  • he's not designed as a terrestrial predator.

  • He's designed for in the water and at the water's edge.

  • Top speed, half his body is tail,

  • he can go nearly as fast as a dolphin.

  • Acco's got a really big head

  • and these crocs can have over 3,000 pounds per square inch

  • of closing jaw pressure, so that means anything they catch

  • basically just explodes on impact.

  • When they hatch, they're seven inches long.

  • They're tiny.

  • When you're a little crocodile,

  • everything would want to eat you,

  • but once they get up to this size,

  • the only real threat that they would have

  • would be from other big male crocodiles.

  • They are just the ultimate hunting machine

  • and I just love them.

  • Crocodiles could probably live

  • well up and over 60, 70 years.

  • He's probably a really old crocodile

  • and he's probably seen a lot in his day.

  • Oh yeah, you think it's gonna hit?

  • This rain?

  • (Stella whining)

  • Hey Robert, how's it goin'?

  • Oh, I'm doin' great, thanks.

  • I'm just walking Stella, who's deciding to go this way.

  • Oh, do you have a minute

  • to answer some questions?

  • Yeah, I think so.

  • What do you think Stella?

  • What's the first animal

  • you fell in love with?

  • I think the first animal that I fell in love with was

  • Jenny, the Burmese python.

  • What's one misconception

  • people have about reptiles?

  • They're not all trying to eat you.

  • What's your favorite band?

  • I like Ed Sheeran.

  • Nice, what's your favorite snack?

  • Ooh, I like rice, a bit of vegetables.

  • What do people not know about Australia?

  • It's closer than you think.

  • Yeah, it looks like

  • the rain's getting worse.

  • Who got you into photography?

  • My dad.

  • Do you have a favorite photo

  • you've ever taken?

  • Well, it was really unfortunate, Sudan,

  • the last male northern white rhino,

  • unfortunately passed away

  • but it was a real privilege to photograph him.

  • That was probably my favorite photo.

  • Do you have a favorite camera?

  • I shoot Canon so the 1D X--

  • (thunder booming)

  • Okay, we gotta stop.

  • Come on guys!

  • (Stella whining)

  • Guess we only got to eight.

  • I love him, oh, these guys are so cute.

  • (mumbles) animal, he's chosen you.

  • (jazzy upbeat music)

  • We're here with another adorable Australian animal.

  • We'd like you to meet, Kato.

  • Hi Kato.

  • - We love Kato. - Hi Kato.

  • Kato is a wombat.

  • We absolutely love her.

  • She is so cute.

  • And Kato is currently about 14 years old at the moment.

  • For a wild wombat that's pretty much as old as they get,

  • 14, 15 years, but in captivity

  • they could live well over 20 years.

  • Yeah.

  • So, they're beautiful animals

  • and ah, she's really enjoying that.

  • She loves those sweet potato.

  • Sweet potato is like chocolate for wombats,

  • which is hilarious.

  • But wombats are really interesting

  • because they're great diggers.

  • They actually dig their very own burrows in the wild.

  • So Kato here is really sandy.

  • She has sand all through that thick tough fur

  • and she is really, really cute.

  • I think that's quite unusual with these guys,

  • that you definitely wouldn't expect,

  • is they can actually run at 25 miles per hour.

  • Isn't that amazing?

  • So this little kind of,

  • looks like a giant guinea pig almost--

  • She's like a square with legs.

  • But they can run really, really fast.

  • It's amazing and you can see this really hard,

  • it's kinda like this hard plate there,

  • that's right on their bottom

  • and what that is, that sort

  • of acts as a shield for predators.

  • So what they would do if a predator were chasing them,

  • they'd burrow down into their little burrow

  • and then they can actually press this up

  • and it would definitely be a pretty good deterrent for a predator.

  • There is no way to get through that.

  • It's just this big wall.

  • - Wall. - Yeah, exactly.

  • And these guys love walking

  • all throughout Australia Zoo.

  • We kinda let them do their own thing,

  • so they can go and meet our visitors

  • and they can have a look around the zoo

  • and they have little tiny legs

  • so if they get tired at any point

  • we wheelbarrow them back to their homes.

  • We're really lucky to spend time with Kato.

  • She'll be right.

  • What does she'll be right mean?

  • She'll be right.

  • She'll be right.

  • Well, it means pretty much what it says,

  • she'll be right, everything's gonna be okay.

  • Yes.

  • All is well.

  • If she is everything, it means just what it says.

  • She is everything.

  • Woman's empowerment.

  • The rhino is charging at me.

  • She'll be right.

  • She'll be right.

  • Next week on Wild Times.

  • Now we are joined by a very beautiful friend.

  • Robert, who have we got?

  • This is Queto, and Queto, hey mate,

  • he's a gorgeous blue and gold macaw.

  • Isn't he amazing?

  • (jazzy upbeat music)

And ah, she's really enjoying that.
