Narrator: (Jumping back in alarm) Wow! I didn’t see you fly in!
Komodo Dragon: (Patiently) That’s because I didn’t! I’m a Komodo dragon from South East Asia. And, just for the record, I neither fly nor breathe fire!
Narrator: But you look pretty fearsome, for all that!
Komodo Dragon: Well, I am the world’s largest lizard and I do have some pretty unpleasant poison and bacteria in my saliva!
Narrator: Ugh! Not a nice way to die! I think we’ll have you just sitting nice and quietly back here, where you came from!
(Narrator leads dragon back to his place)
Music 4 Chariots of Fire
(Enter Ostrich, running gracefully in time to the music)
(Narrator holds up hand for ostrich to stop)
Narrator: Er excuse me! I hate to interrupt your morning exercise
Ostrich: Oh, I can go way faster than that! I’m just warming up! Apart from being the world’s biggest bird, I am also the fastest runner – for a bird, that is! Seventy km an hour!
Narrator: Wow! That’s fast (pauses) considering your size!
Ostrich: I also lay the largest eggs and have the biggest eyes to watch over them!
(Enter Goliath bird-eater spider – whole cast shrieks and cowers in fright)
Goliath Bird-Eater Spider: Just as well you don’t live anywhere near me!
Ostrich: (Haughtily) South America is a long way from my African home (pauses) but seriously? One stamp from me and you’re history!
*I may shortly produce an Animal Alphabet script for younger children.
