    Titles read: "CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    Brief shot of young boys looking at tropical fish and creatures in tanks at a zoo aquarium. Tortoises and a large tropical fish are seen. (Location of zoo is unspecified.)

    In Durban, South Africa, we see various shots of a huge 9,000 lb basking shark, lying dead and bound while onlookers stare at it. It has been brought back to the harbour after being caught by fishermen.

    In Zululand, South Africa, we see good shots of a large swarm of locusts flying about and settling on foliage in fields. Great but unpleasant shot from a car as we drive through the swarm - yeuch!
