Gadget pack? Check. Gizmo? Check. Kipmobile? Check. Andy and Kip could hardly miss their flying vehicle; it’s the biggest thing in the workshop at Pickles Animal Park. In the second of a new series, they strap in for a visit to the Galapagos Islands in South America, where Andy is on the lookout for giant tortoises and their almost-constant companions, finches.

About this programme

Andy Day and Kip the cat go all around the world in search of weird and wonderful animals. Andy and Kip head to the Galapagos Islands in South America for a wild adventure in search of giant tortoises. These reptiles can live up to 150 years old, weighing as much as four Andys put together. Along the way, Andy discovers the tortoises have a special relationship with a tiny bird called a Galapagos finch, which keeps the tortoises' skin clean and bug-free.
