  • -I know. That was incredible.

  • [ Cheers and applause ] 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.

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • And you're smart. You know what you're talking about.

  • -[ Laughs ] 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 of him. -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.

  • [ Laughs ]

  • -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."

  • -[ Laughs ] 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.

  • [ Laughs ] 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 -- [ Laughs ] 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.

  • -[ Laughs ] -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 -- [ Laughs ] This one is D-9.

  • -Kind of sounds like a rapper. -D-9? Yeah, it does.

  • [ Laughs ]

  • -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.

  • [ Laughs ] 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!

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • [ Laughs ] 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 -- [ Laughs ]

  • 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. [ Laughter ]

  • And you can tell the difference...

  • [ Laughter and applause ]

  • -I'm an idiot.

  • -You can tell the -- Whoa. [ Chuckles ]

  • 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.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • -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.

  • [ Laughter and applause ]

  • 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 -- [ Chuckles ] 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. [ Chuckles ] -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. [ Cheers and applause ]

  • -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.

  • [ Audience awws ] -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... [ Laughter ]

  • ...the way that they get introduced to other things...

  • [ Laughter and applause ]

  • ...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?
