Hi Animal Wonderers.  We're back at Animal Wonders and today, we're going to to do something kinda silly.  We mostly do educational videos on this channel, but sometimes, it's nice just to have a good time with the animals because it's fun.  Fun for us and fun for them.  Today, we're gonna have a food eating contest and see how many bananas Kemosabe can eat in one sitting.


Alright, here we are with Kemosabe.  Hi buddy.  Are you hungry?  Yeah, I know, you're gonna get bananas in just a second, I promise.  Normally, we limit their diet to a varied but specific ratio of foods to optimize their nutrition but today, we're going to let Kemosabe indulge to his heart's content.  Here we go.  It's your favorite, it's a banana.  Here, let me help.  I know, I know, it's coming.  Here, here.  Oh.  Is that good?  Num num.  I wonder how many you're going to eat.  You're going kind of slow.  Are you gonna tire out before you can eat as much as you possibly can?  Nice shot.  I feel like your one tooth is limiting your ability to eat this faster. 

Kemosabe is due for a tooth trim.  He only has one top incisor and it's ever-growing so every couple months, we have to file that down to make sure it doesn't get too long.  Right now, we have a vet scheduled to come out next week and trim that sucker down so we have a very interesting phenomenon going on right now.  I think he is a master food contest eater and so he is making more room in his stomach by evacuating stuff out one end while banana's going in the other end.  Huh, you're gonna try--well, that basket is just full of your own poop.  Yeah, you put that poop in there.  Okay, come on, come on down here and get some more banana.  There you go.  Yeah, here.  Here you go.  

Kemosabe, I see someone watching you.  Do you want some banana, too, Sera?  Seraphina the red fox.  Do you think she'd eat banana?  They're omnivores.  Should we make it a competition, bud?  Yeah?  I don't know, I think she could eat it faster than him and he's pretty slow, but I don't know if she could eat more.  Heyyy.  One down, good job, Kemosabe.  Do you want some more?  Come on, look.  Ohh, more banana.  Let's give it to you.  Here you go.  Alright.  Well you work on this one, let's go check in with Seraphina and see how many bananas she can eat.

Alright, I have three bananas left.  Do you think Seraphina can eat them all?  Come on, do you want a banana?  What do you think?  Oh, that's super exciting.  Here, come on up here.  Yeah.  Alright.  I have to make it even.  Have to make it fair.   There.  Oh.  She's definitely eating it faster, but does she have the same stomach space?  Come on up here.  Oh man.  Already slowing down.  Is that all you can stomach, a half a banana?  Really?  I think Seraphina's banana'd out.  So Seraphina has already eaten breakfast, so that could be a deciding factor in it.  That's all you have left.  You can do one.  You can do one.  Oh, slippery banana.  I don't know if we're even going to get one.  You tried your best.  I don't blame ya.  A whole banana is pretty good to eat.  Nice work.

So we got almost one banana for Seraphina.  Let's go check back in with Kemosabe.  Alright, so Kemosabe already finished his one banana.  We gave him a second banana and he made it halfway through and then this one fell and he couldn't find it.   So I'm gonna hand it back to him and see if he can finish off his second banana.  Here you go.  He is making a face that tells me no, but he did eat one and a half bananas, which is more than Seraphina's almost one banana, so Kemosabe is the winner, wooo!  

Alright, I hope you guys enjoyed hanging out with these guys and having fun with bananas.  Thank you, Kemosabe.  Thank you, Seraphina and I guess thank you, bananas, for being so delicious, and to celebrate Kemosabe's love of bananas, we have a brand new t-shirt right here.  It's up for pre-order on our website.  The link is in the description.  I hope that you guys love it as much as I do.  If you'd like to go on an adventure with us every week, subscribe to our YouTube channel.  If you have any questions for me, leave them in the comments below and we'll see you next week.


So I decided to see how the pigeon mother would react to him directly and it was a perfect adoption.  She started feeding him along with her other two chicks.  Within a week, Willow was mimicking her--
