    Titles read: '"The Invasion of '33" - Not exactly a war menace, but a real one to the Queensland fruit growers - the flying fox.'

    Queensland, Australia.

    Various shots of 'Flying Foxes' - large bats - flying about some trees in a wood. Some men are seen walking through the forest. A large flying fox is stretched out before the camera; we then see it climbing up a tree, using its wings and foot claws to get up the trunk!
