Chris's dream has come true. He has successfully bred 15 tiger quolls. Always keen to educate kids about this endangered species, Chris decides to adopt two quoll joeys to hand rear and take into classrooms. The dingo pups have grown up and now need to be socialised before appearing in public. The emu chicks have also grown up. Out in the wild they are predator and prey, but for now the dingoes and emus get up to all sorts of antics.
This week at the zoo, Xavier notices something is wrong in the wallaby enclosure. A joey has been killed overnight by predatory owls. Chris rescues the remaining joey, saving it from a similar fate. With lots of care, Nova the Masked Owl, has grown dramatically.
This week at the zoo it's a long weekend, and the Humfreys head north again, this time to Nymboida in NSW for a short break. But any sort of holiday for Chris always involves animals and this time it's turtles in the river, frogs in the toilet, and snakes in the living room.
Last week, Chris and Nicole auditioned two new presenters to join their team. But before they are allowed out to do shows at schools, Chris needs to ensure they are up to scratch in their animal handling skills. So he has designed some challenges involving some of the zoo's more dangerous animals.
Chris's zoo looks after the most secretive owl species in Australia the Masked Owl. And this season, two of them have become first time parents. But Chris is worried their inexperience means the owls won't be capable of looking after their young. He's going to have to take over the care of the newborn chicks if they are to survive the next few days.
This week Chris's so called holiday continues. The Humfreys head north towards Darwin. Chris doesn't exactly pick the tourist hotspots. He can't resist stopping at an outback dump, where amongst the garbage, lies a treasure trove of hidden animals.
This week at the zoo Chris is suffering from eye troubles attributed to stress, so following doctor's orders, heads to the Western McDonnell Ranges, in central Australia, for a week's break. But if Nicole and the kids were expecting a relaxing vacation, they're going to be disappointed.
This week at the zoo Chris wants to breed quolls to help increase their numbers in captivity. Last year's attempt to breed failed this year Chris is determined to succeed.
This week at the zoo we find out that the breeding of wild animals in captivity is a very specialised job, and Chris calls for the help of Australia's dingo expert when he needs some new dingo pups for his classroom animal shows. New recruit Danielle is ready and enthusiastic for her first ever show, so why has she gone missing in action?
If humans have a sore back, the answer is often a chiropractor. But what to do for a snake? Chris takes the unusual step of calling in a very brave chiropractor for a very large python.
In this episode we meet Danielle, a very enthusiastic volunteer who is desperate to get a full time job as a wildlife presenter. And all she has to do to get it is to impress Chris, and some very cranky animals.
In tonight's show when a presenter on Chris's wildlife shows walks out at the start of the busy season, Chris is forced to fast track another staff member. Darren has been presenting with the team for a while, and while he's a unique combination of snake catcher, theatrical actor and comedian, he's petrified of water. So when Chris takes him snorkelling to collect species for the marine show, the challenge for Darren is not just impressing the boss and hopefully landing the new presenting job, but also in conquering his fears.
Meet Chris Humfrey, a zoologist who lives with his young family and their REALLY big dog in an idyllic bush haven in country Victoria. But the Humfreys also share their home with a few other pets more than 2000 and each one of them needs care and attention 24/7.
