    An animal which is half lion and half tiger is the subject of this zoo story.

    M/S of two of the beasts walking around their enclosure. A zoo keeper feeds them pieces of meat. "The cameraman doesn't seem to mind - much, but then they're only playful - and one-and-a-half year-olders!" M/S of the cameraman turning the handle with the big cats and the zoo keeper just in front of him. C/U of one of the cats. Various shots of the animals moving around. M/S of the keeper brushing the coat of one of the cats.
