Billy Bennett gives us a comedy lecture on bats and possums.
Full titles read: "And now Pathetone presents some "Unnatural History -" by Prof. Billy Bennett - --- almost ----!" (timecode obscures title.)
London, probably Pathe Studio.
M/S of comedian Billy Bennett introducing his comedy lecture on bats.
Various shots of bats follow - most look quite uncomfortable! They are examined, have their wings stretched, and are generally poked and prodded while Billy gives us a humorous commentary. There is a horrible shot of a bat having a wing pulled off. Part of this bat sequence seems to have been cut.
Back to Billy who tells us that is all he knows about bats; for further information we should consult Mr Jack Hobbs. More patter, then another comedy lecture about possums, showing various shots of a mother possum with babies clinging to her back; other possums runs over a man's hand and a boy's head. A dog sniffs the mother possum, covered with babies; she snaps at him. The dog is seen with some baby possums on his back; he then shakes them off.
Back to Billy who says sometime we must come round and see his troupe of performing crabs. He takes a drink of water, puts a bottle of drink to his ear and spits water out of his mouth.
