    Uganda, Africa? The landscape footage may be of Africa, the rest could be anywhere as looks like a studio and a zoo.

Hand enters the picture and picks up and moves the lizard. C/U of a terrapin. Extreme C/U of his head. M/S of a brightly coloured snake - orange, black and white stripes.

    C/U of a bird - possibly a toucan or similar. The bird turns to the side - rather handsome for a bird. C/U of the bird as he opens his beak.

Another bird - pink and black feathers. M/S of a different toucan-like bird. Various shots of the birds as they move around on their perches. A black bird with an orange beak. A bird with a very long white tail - this one is in a cage. Various shots of hummingbirds (? I think). The birds hover beside a small bottle of liquid, putting their beaks inside.
