Can you figure out what deep sea creatures are making the sounds on today's Chompers?

Where to Listen


>> Rachel: Get your flippers on, it's time to dive back into Chompers, your morning and night toothbrushing show

Start brushing on the top of your mouth on one side and brush all the way around each tooth. 

>> Kids: 3, 2 , 1 brush!

>> Rachel: Its Oceans Week, and this morning we’re playing : 


We’ll play an ocean sound for you, and you have to figure out what it is. Here’s your first one: 

(SFX long under water groans)

What was that? Here it is one more time: 

(SFX long under water groans)

So...What’s that sound? 

Find out after you switch to the other side of the top of your mouth and brush all the way to the molars in the back. 

That sound is… 

>> GROUP: A Humpback WHALE!

>> Rachel: A humpback Whale! 

Beyonce may be the biggest singing star on land, but Humpback whales are the singing stars of the ocean. Their songs can last up to 20 minutes, Scientists think that only boy whales sing … maybe because they’re trying to get the attention of girl whales.  So maybe whale songs are love songs! (SFX) 

Switch to the bottom of your mouth, and keep brushing!

Here’s your next what's that sound:

(SFX Barking sounds)

Did you know that one? Here it is one more time: 

(SFX barking sounds)

So...What's that sound? 


>> GROUP: A sea lion!

>> Rachel: A sea lion!

Sea lions aren’t much like lions. They’re more like ocean dogs!  Sea lions are really playful and their babies are even called pups. (SFX BARK BARK) 

Switch to the other side of the bottom of your mouth, and brush all the way to the molars in the back 

Sea lions may swim in the ocean like fish, but they are warm blooded mammals, just like whales (SFX) and sea otters (SFX). Sea lions are usually pretty chubby, because they need a thick layer of fat to keep them warm in the cold water of the ocean. That layer of fat is called blubber, and that blubber doesn't just keep them warm, it also makes them look super cute (SFX SEA LION)

That's it for Chompers today, but come back tomorrow for more Oceans Week! Until then,
