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.

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.
