9:02 pm
some people think it's water. animal has two eyes, two eyelids so the sand doesn't get inside their eyes, or their ear drums. for a person that have camels in the middle east, by the way, all camels are mostly domesticated. this is one hump for a dromedary camel and two humps for the camel. it's used for transportation. it's used for food if the camel dies. that fur is used for coats. they're used for knitting needles, weapons. even the dung, the poop, how are you going to cook a steak out in the woods? you take the dried feces, and
9:03 pm
you light it and cook your food. did you ride a camel? >> larry: i did. >> did your legs get sore >> larry: yes. how's things going? >> traveling to malaysia and africa. and just got back from rwanda. >> larry: did you ever think about retiring? now, we have a bush baby. >> this is a bush baby. >> larry: that mean it lives in the bush? >> on his shoulder. >> larry: okay. >> larry, is this a bush baby. we filmed the bush baby in africa. it's nocturnal. you see the eyeballs at nighttime out in the trees. they're not really big trees. they're pollenated, they defecate and pollenates is what it does.

9:07 pm
college here. larry, this is a serbo cat from africa. you don't see these cats very often. this cat was found up in egypt, if you ever watched "discovery" or "national geographic," you'll see the cat drawing on their mummies or the pyramids. it was a regal animal. it's one of the few cats in the world that can jump and catch a bird in free flight. six or eight feet in the air. isn't it magnificent? >> larry: magnificent is the right word. >> look at the back of the ears. you see those ears? those are called eye spots. this cat is eating something, a hyena or something, they would think that the cat is looking backwards. >> larry: those are built in? >> exactly. the legs are different lengths.

>> larry: we're back with jack hanna's big night here on "larry king live." our first segment was titled "africa." this is called "birds. "this is a cuckaburrow. what exactly is a cuckaburrow? >> this is from my good friend's country, australia. it's camouflage and sits on a tree. you don't ever see it. it eats snakes and frogs and that type of thing. it's got a sound. i don't know if i can get it to do this. larry, tell me -- >> larry: well, we can't top that. good night. >> larry, i'm sorry, this makes my day, it really does. i can't believe he did this perfectly. that's a perfect cuckaburrow call. when you're out back in australia and nighttime, you hear that, and you don't know what it is, let me tell you
9:12 pm
something, what is that. >> larry: you're not kidding. >> that's how they call each other. it's called a laughing cuckaburrow. >> larry: i've got birds right behind me. >> larry: that was good. >> just replay it. >> larry: these are the biggest and smallest owls, right? >> larry, i've never done this before ever. this shocked me. this is susan my wife, i thought she was going to bring an animal out. >> larry: this is your wife? >> this is my wife. >> larry: i thought you didn't know. >> i didn't know she was going to do this. this is the largest animal in the world, the largest owl in the world. what sue has is the smallest owl in the world, a screech owl. there are many different types of owls throughout the world. i'm going to ask you a question what animal is found on every
9:13 pm
continent in the world except for antarctica? >> larry: don't tell me an owl. >> an owl, exactly. let me show you something, larry. people ask, why does he turn his head that way. the eyes are so big. i was going to say if i see pretty girl, you can take your eyes without moving your head, right. the owl, he cannot do that. with his eye socket, he cannot turn his eyes. isn't that amazing. the ears are faced like this, like a cup. so this owl -- neither one of them -- this is the owl that likes the insects, too. this owl, if he's out for a mouse or rat in this room, he can hunt in that location without seeing it. that's why they call it the wise old owl because of its senses. its brain, larry, is very small. how much do you think an owl weighs? >> larry: 35 pounds. >> i'm not laughing at you. >> larry: yes, you are. what does it weigh?
9:14 pm
>> only 2 pounds. it's all feathers and hollow bones. can you imagine this. >> larry: my goodness. >> look at this, larry, it just appears inside. >> larry: okay, wise old owl. the american bird. the bird that salutes this country. you don't see many of them. i was driving in montana once with ted turner and we saw one fly, and he went nuts. a bald eagle. >> every time i see a bald eagle, they're coming back again because of the species. melanie from the beautiful farm there, the jacksons, they rescue bald eagles from not just alaska but this country. this is a big alaska bald eagle. it's larger than the bald eagles that might live in america. >> larry: the bird of america? >> exactly.
9:15 pm
a lot of eagles are shot thinking they may be a buzzard or something but they're an immature bald eagle. if that were a wild bird, larry, those talons would go through her skin, break her bones and in a second. the pressure on the arm is beyond anything you can imagine. >> i work out. >> look at that peek there. it's used for tearing. >> when he does that, what is he doing, is he refreshing herself? >> she's just getting comfortable on my arm. she's stretching out her wings like we stretch our arms. >> larry: i got to get one more. >> thank you. >> larry: and now we have a red-crested turacao. >> look at the colors on the

9:19 pm
larry. tried to have it as a were pet. you can see the legs are crumbled up. they took his animal and raised it. no one wanted it, obviously, it was almost dying. people say a monkey is a pet. that's the worst thing you can possible do. they carry disease, they bite and it's against the law. >> larry: why the term "spider?" >> look at these hands and legs here. this is deformed, okay but a real spider monkey, his arms are like a big spider. he goes around, larry, like this, see this, he can swing, they can swing, larry, like 30, 40 feet from tree to tree, like a big spider in the air. don't have one as a pet. they're not good. >> larry: we're with jack hanna. animals from the desert are in the city. we'll be back with a porcupine and a gila monster after this. ♪
