  • Short Summary

    Various zoo scenes featuring polar bears, hippopotamus, chimp and a baby elephant.

  • Description

    A polar bear at the zoo has a bath - someone off screen trains a hose on him. We then see a hippopotamus being sprayed in C/U. Chimpanzee sits on the hip of a zoo keeper. Zoo keeper feeds him with an ice cream cornet. C/U of the monkey eating the ice cream. A baby elephant does a little dance - a "shimmy." Probably an animal in distress rather than a happy elephant.
