Sound running. When you are ready... Oh, well, the zoos are very important to animals They're a bit like homes... like nursing homes and... for poor animals and... erm... people, like old people. And there's old animals which are... dead... and people in the wild who have... don't have much to eat so they have to kill their own people to have something to eat. Oh, it's very, very good. Very good. Very comfortable, you know? We're well looked after and it's in a nice position. They try to make you comfortable, they try to put you in... in... in... in a quite nice situation with... uh... it's then the food that look like... look... look ... more like a ... dog food than food proper for wild animals, alright? Well, erm, most of the cages are a bit small and rather grotty and everything But the terrapins seem to get a good site. They've got.. er.. they've got a big waterfall, big pools to play around in and ... there's lots of them there, they looked really happy. Yeah, well, it's reasonably comfortable, I suppose, this place but... er... er... I mean... I've been in more comfortable rooms, yes. If you try to compare the situations and the environment that you live in here with the environment of... that you live in Brazil, there is a big difference. Here you live in a very small ... place with all the technological advances possible. You have everything sorted out, double glazing, you know, your... your heating and everything. In Brazil-- But you don't have space. In Brazil you have space although you don't have all this technological you know, double glazing, things like that and... er... you know and... but you have space! And, er, we need space to live we need space to feel that we are part of the world and not a kind of piece of object in a box. My room is a bit too small, really and I've got so much stuff in it that I can't get anything new. There's just nowhere to put it. Well, sometimes you can't... you can't get out and about as much as you would like to. You're stuck in for some reason like I'm stuck in today. And... then... then, yes, you get bored and you get fed up with looking at the same four walls. I try to spend as little time in here as possible but... er... I can't actually get out and about I... usually escape into books and things. I feel very secure and well looked after very well looked after. And I'm I'm not worried about anything. I know whatever happens they'll look after me and put put me where I ought to be. I think they... they'd like it in the wild if they were in the wild, but I think it's much better to be.... in... bars because, like I've said, they get fed, whereas some animals they go for days without food. Because animals that's in the circus have to... uhm... get on boxes and balls but animals in the zoo they... they don't have to do anything. They can do their own thing like drinking and eating. I miss a lot the food I miss the fresh meat. You know, because in Brazil we are predominantly carnivores. We're not, you know, vegetarian and... er... we don't like potatoes we like MEAT! And we like fresh MEAT! My favourite food is, I'm afraid to say, steak. I... er... I'd go a long way to go and get a nice steak. Uh.. do you like lions as well then? Do you like steaks and chips with lions with it? Not with lions, Andrew, no. I don't like lion steak. I... I prefer the ordinary steak. I'd like to live somewhere a bit hotter. I don't like getting rained on and I don't like being cold and I find that here I often get rained on and I'm often cold. Where I would like to live and to spend most of my life in a hot country! You know, in a hot country that I have a good weather and that I have SPACE and that I have TREES, you know, that I don't have only grass with pollen that give me hayfever every day. I need a space with blue skies, without-- That I can see the sun every day, alright? That I have nice weather, that I can just have nice... water, you know, to dive, do swimming, It means a tropical country! Not on an island! ... a cold one. It's easy: any part of the world but HOT. Name it and I'll go.
