  • Short Summary

    A little girl presents strange pets to the camera - an Indian Sloth bear and pigmy marmoset monkeys.

  • Description

    "Pets - queer and quaint - the first "Teddy", a little Indian Sloth bear."

    M/S of a little girl holding a Sloth on a lead. Very cute. The bear is accompanied by a little dog (possibly a Jack Russell). C/U of the bear nibbling at the grass. "But, the cutest were two little pigmy marmoset monkeys." C/U of little girl holding two glasses which contain tiny monkeys. She kisses the monkeys then tries to get them to kiss each other.

    C/U of one of the monkeys. The girl turns the glass around so we can see its face. The monkey is taken out of the glass and the girl holds it in her hands. The monkey climbs onto the girl's shoulder, she smiles.
