Since his honourable discharge from the army, Major Apus has been exploring. He specialises in large, unusual creatures and is showing off his latest find: two giant albino peacocks. He is quite a big softy so rather than kill and stuff his prizes, he shows them off and encourages conservation. He has traded his blunder bus for a giant net and says, "It creates a lot less mess, don't you know, what!". Although he is a seasoned explorer, he has got lost in Kew gardens once or twice!
