Bindi and Chandler Meet Three Curious Lemur Brothers! | Wild Times

– For him, this is kind of like a sprint, like this is very very
fast for a tortoise, so he’s really going. – I can’t protect you with leaves. – [Together] We’re the Irwins. – [Bindy] And this is Australia Zoo. – [Robert] Our dad, Steve, built this zoo to protect our world’s wildlife. Today, we strive to carry on his mission. – [Bindi] So come with
us, this is Wild Times. (upbeat music) (upbeat music) (both laughing)
– G’day guys, I’m Bindi and this is my lovely boyfriend, – G’day.
– Chandler. And we are with our adorable black and whiter ruffed lemurs. (upbeat music) They are hilarious. – They are hilarious. – You can see that they
are extremely fluffy, extremely hungry and unbelievably cute. We have three brothers. And the three brothers
are only a year old. – So we have Andro, Maro and Telo. And they are just loving it here. – And there’s a lot of your fluff in my face at the moment. – [Bindi] They’re like giant pillows. – They feed on mainly fruit and nectar. And having this thick coat of fur, the pollen sticks to
their fur really nicely. So as they travel through the trees, they are pollinating the entire forest. So they are the largest
pollinators in the world. – Now, they’re one of
very few known lemurs to actually build nests for their young. – Yeah, so their young, they’re born a little more underdeveloped
than most lemurs. So these guys put their young in nests while the mothers go and forage. – Hi (laughs) – And then after a few weeks, they’ll be old enough to
venture out with their mother. – They have like human hands. They have little
fingernails, really soft pads and they, you never know
when one’s gonna jump down and land on your hand. Hi, how’s it’s going? You’re very sweet. And they’re extremely gentle. So when anyone comes to visit them, they love to get fed and they’ll use those little hands to grab pieces of fruits and vegetables. They hang by their feet,
which is really interesting. A lot of people think that
they’ll hold on by their tail but they actually hold on by their feet. And what’s fascinating is when they run through the forest, through those trees, it’s like they velcro onto the trees. – It’s amazing.
– So when they’re moving at a great pace, they just suction onto
the trees and keep going. It’s the coolest thing.
– It’s incredible. – One of my favorite things about these black and white ruffed lemurs, is those massive orange eyes. They guys are critically endangered and that’s why we are so lucky to have them here at Australia Zoo. Because they need all
the love and protection that they can get.
– Definitely. – They’re so cute. (both laughing) (quizzical music) (upbeat music) (gentle, happy music) – This is Jarvis. And we’re in our awesome tortoise area. He’s an incredible Aldabra tortoise, isn’t he just massive? He’s so cool. And a little bit grumpy. (chuckles) So, Jarvis is only aoout 43 at the moment and he’s got a beautiful
little girl in with him, and she’s actually 66, and I know that does sound quite old. But these tortoises are some of the oldest living creatures on the planet. They will live up and
over a hundred years. Oh, he’s a little bit feisty too. But once they’ve got up to this size, they’ve pretty much got no
threats at all in the wild, cause they are massive. – He loves to eat sweet potato,
carrots, hibiscus leaves. These are some of his favorite things. But right now, it’s kind of mating season, so, he’s a little bit, – He’s very feisty but you can see he loves his carrots. But you’ve got to be quite
careful of your fingers because these tortoises, as you can see, they have that kind of beak shaped mouth. So, they have a really
strong bite as well. So, he would be capable of
biting down really, really hard. – The great carapace is
different in every animal. So they’ve got slight variations and they’re recognizable
by their carapace, kind of the way people are
all a little bit different. – Yup, I love their feet,
have a look at that. You think of sea turtles
and fresh water turtles and they have those kind of flippers, that sort of webbed feet. Whereas he has feet like an elephant. It’s incredible. So that really helps him to traverse that really harsh terrain and just plow through anything. They are the largest tortoise species and as their name suggests, they occur in the Aldabra islands, kind of off the coast of Eastern Africa. They’re really, really special creatures. The nice thing about tortoises is, they’re not like crocodiles, and you never have to
worry about them striking and getting you cause–
– I don’t know. – They’re not extremely quick. But for him, this is
kind of like a sprint, like this is very, very
fast for a tortoise, so he’s really going. – [Terri] I can’t protect you with leaves. (upbeat music) – The largest sand island
in the entire world is right here in Australia. It’s over 70 miles long. (upbeat music) (camera clicks) – This is probably one of the most amazing photography expeditions
that I’ve ever been on. And I would say one of the
most breathtaking experience I’ve ever had with any animal. In this image, this is
a huge humpback whale. You can actually see me,
this little tiny speck. And you can really see
that size comparison. That’s me, photographing this whale. And so the story behind this image, I was actually out on
the Great Barrier Reef. And then all of a sudden, out of nowhere, these two giant, kind of
ominous looking shapes just started rising up
out of the deep water. I didn’t know what it was at first. And then I realized, those are whales. And, oh, I didn’t even know what to think. They all of a sudden
were right up next to us. I was just, floating in the water, looking, just completely stunned. And then I went oh, I should
probably be photographing this. And so I got my camera
and started taking photos. And it was such a moving experience. Because these are some of the most powerful creatures on the planet. Some of the largest creatures as well. And yet, they were so gentle. And it was definitely an experience that I will never forget. – [Announcer] Next week, on wild times. – [Bindi] These guys love walking all throughout Australia Zoo. And then we always bring
a wheelbarrow with us in case they get tired. They have little tiny legs. (upbeat music)

  1. If I ever make it over there. This will b my first stop. Its on my bucket list. Steve your babies have grown up so beautiful. Terri so happy for u and this amazing zoo. I hope someday to meet yall.

  2. Seems like yesterday when I first started watching Steve and Terri. I just can't believe he's gone and his kids are already grown up and taking over.

  3. Bindi reminds me so much of your mom. But I still see a lot of your father in you as well. But not as much as I see of your dad in your brother Robert.

  4. This is an extraordinary moment @3:30 for Terri: Steve returns for a few seconds through her son's voice, and gestures. She looks at him with adoration. I LOVE THIS FAMILY so much !

  5. I can't even. Please tell me I'm not the only one who almost bursts into happy tears when they see basically anything about the Irwin Family?

  6. Wow Robert … what an amazing experience you have had with humpbacks. Can only imagine what that must be like. Just l o v e  your photography.

  7. I‘m from germany and I made my dream come true to visit australia. I‘m currently in Sydney but will travel up the eastcoast up to brisbane to visit Australia zoo. I already feel like I‘m 10 years old, sitting in front of the TV and watching the crocodile hunter, my childhood hero. My dream would be to talk to Robert for just aminute. Wish me luck guys😍

  8. ive said this almost every video, but every video I am one step closer to heading out to Australia to work/volunteer at the Zoo! Every week i have one more tool to help me achieve my goal of becoming a Wildlife conservationist! Thank You Animal Planet for sharing these amazing videos with us!

  9. People really need to start watching Wild Times more. And basically all shows that talk about conservation of animals. We can't ignore the depletion of animals forever and these shows are really inspirational and it's just sad that people choose to watch Logan Paul and others over these.

  10. I was born in the Seychelles Islands. I grew up around Aldabra Tortoises! I had 2 in my backyard. Such great animals 💚💙

  11. god, I love Bindi. I remember watching her show (name?) on Discovery Kids or Animal Planet or whatever it was… Either way i've loved learning from her and watching her work for a long time

  12. jarvis is so passive aggressive lol he’s just like Robert i’m gonna get you if you don’t move out my property. The lemurs are so cute.The whales are so majestic coming from the depths that we struggle to even go ourselves without submarines,even with submarines we humans can’t go so deep without risking death. it’s james cameron and the two trieste scientists who’ve been to the deepest part of the ocean it’s incredible and frightening how massive the oceans specifically the Pacific ocean is.

  14. Sounds like Bindi has been losing her Aussie accent, I kind of find it funny how after all these years Terri still has a really strong American accent, I remember Bindi when she was a kid she sounded way more American than Australian… Robert was always just full on Aussie though, lol. He definitely amps it up quite a bit on Jimmy Fallon.

  15. The tortoise looked like it wanted to take a bite out of Robert.
    The animals are amazing. I have a dream of going to Australia and seeing the animals. I think I will have to visit Australia zoo.

  16. I had a blue tongue skink as a pet for over 25 years. . .what a cool creature. Wild Blueberry thanks for all the awesome memories!

  17. My favorite animals are Lemurs, Red pandas And Chihuahuas
    I couldn't leave my dog out 😁❤

  18. How fitting would it be if they had a kid named Joey? Not only is it an Australian animal but Joey and Chandler from friends

  19. The alternative to plastic is hemp products for it makes over 26,000 different things. It has even been proven to be 10 times stronger than steel and 30% lighter stronger and lighter than concrete stronger and lighter than brick far more versatile making the design possibilities practically limitless, at the same time being easier to work with on-site' equally as amazing 1 acre of hemp! Can produce enough bile fossil fuel to fuel 10,000 vehicles for a year at about a dollar per gallon. One of the major differences is hemp bile fossil fuel only releases the same amount of carbon dioxide on oxygenated air per mile as a person does when the exhale versus coal oil gas. Which release tens of millions of years worth of petrified death per mile. The real sales pitch" is 1 acre of hemp! Produces 3 to 4 times the amount of oxygen as a acre of trees + it sucks in 3 to 4 times the amount of carbon dioxide un oxygenated air as a acre of trees plus it rejuvenates and replenishes the soil back to Garden of paradise type quality after every harvest even if the landscape has been previously stripped robbed depleted from overharvesting things such as cotton and corn that has been marinating in petroleum-based fertilizer. Not to mention it has the same nutritional value as rice corn wheat barley and milk. So we can easily deal with people being over fed and undernourished In layman's terms we can rebuild faster much more efficiently at a fraction of the cost in half the time of what we are doing today without leaving any excess poison is toxic waste behind. In layman's terms we can manufacture mass-produce distribute products that every country city continent is going to be happy to spend top dollar. Example hemp! Clothing distributes moisture across the body more efficiently than any other material leaving a person feeling smelling and smiling their best even under the most extreme circumstances plus it promotes good respiratory function so if a person has asthma allergies or other breathing complications just by wearing its clothing you will alleviate those symptoms with the potential of diminishing them all together. Hemp! has even been successfully grown on radiative soil. So in theory if we grow hemp along the shores of our rivers and lakes we will greatly improve upon the quality of that water. Nonetheless we definitely will improve upon and maintain the quality of our air water foods landscapes working living environment every day home products by producing 3 to 4 times more oxygen per acre than we do currently. At the same time sucking in 3 to 4 times the amount of carbon dioxide un oxygenated air per acre as we do currently, as a added bonus everywhere we grow it we will be rejuvenating replenishing the soil back to Garden of paradise type quality. Keep in mind America has about 800,000 acres of available farming land. So again we have the manpower technology resources capability technology to create clean high-paying jobs from coast-to-coast that will improve upon and maintain the quality of life in such a way. That will naturally allow each person's generation to become stronger smarter healthier happier better off physically mentally financially possibly spiritually then the previous generation. With that type of leadership loyalty devotion to one's self and country People may start finally having jobs products power sources that will allow them to be healthy and wealthy enough to live enjoy their life all the way through out retirement. You can't do that would dirty low-paying jobs. That come from outdated power sources inferior materials poisonous toxic substances pesticides chemicals that never change their killing composition which means whether it's solid liquid or burnt off to our airways atmosphere as a vapor is always going to be poisonous debilitating deadly to the body at the same time polluting corrupting devastating to mother Earth and all the various different forms of life that live within this world. The bottom line you cannot promote life by doing business with material resources substances that have been scientifically classified religiously verified as petrified death or worse. Think about this if life is not free why the hell would death be any cheaper. I guarantee it's not so would you like to know how souls and spirits have paid out are picking up the tab on the end results of dirty low-paying jobs. Would you like to know how souls and spirits have paid out are picking up the tab on a diminished quality of life. Case closed mercy forgiveness spiritual welfare are not changing these facts. You're either part of the world solutions or you are exacerbating the world's problems either way each and every one of us is being held spiritually accountable for each and every moment. laugh smile grin chuckle with confidence I say now I wish and pray for my soul and spirit to be held spiritually accountable to the statements I proclaim. I guarantee you never see hear another body man empower persons of legal religious authority leaders ever freely validate the statements they proclaim with that level of certainty. One reason could be the don't have the best interest of the majority of the population's needs at heart) another reason could be the come from a breed of cowards! One is genetic hereditary the other is simply a generic learned behavior either way it is physically mentally spiritually useless to freely live and die in such a low quality manner especially if that stupidity ignorance desperation stems from being soft lazy out of shape over fed undernourished overworked underpaid with dirty low-paying jobs. S.R.F.

  20. love how the guy tries to act like he knows what hes talking about. Let's be honest.. he just went to
    visit and got lucky. lol. he tells us what they tell him to say. Better yet he should just stay quiet because we come to here Steve's family….yes hell be family soon but he needs to learn before talking. btw… When did Bindi get bug boobs? 🤣 Hard to see her like that…seems like yest we watched her read what she wrote about her dad when he died.. Shes hands down the sweetest girl in the world. ALL girls should be like her.
