    "Meet one of the Zoo's latest arrivals - one who will never look down in the mouth."

    L/S of giraffes in a zoo enclosure. There is an adult giraffe and a baby. C/U of the cage showing the young giraffe beside the wire. C/U of the baby giraffe who is very cute indeed. It licks its lips. Low angle shot of the adult giraffe accentuating its height. MS of the baby giraffe who is sitting in straw. Various shots of the mother and the baby. The mother nuzzles the child.

    American narrator talks of the baby growing up to be a "pain in the neck" and makes other gentle jokes. I think that the giraffe is referred to as "Geoffrey Junior" (sound problem on this Steenbeck).

    Note: there is no main Pathe title sequence on this issue.
