H G Wells visits the Moscow Experimental Zoo - animal research centre.
Titles read: "Was Darwin right?"
At the Moscow Experimental Zoo we see a group of men, including H G Wells and Professor Pavlov, being shown about. An anteater comes walking out of a cage. A chimpanzee looks inside a box, illustrating that monkeys are clever enough to figure out a lock on a box and are as nosey as humans.
Another chimp is seen in a zoo cage, pouring a drink from a bottle and taking a sip. He then swings around his cage to the delight of a watching crowd (this seems to be at a different time to the above sequence).
Final shot is C/U of a chimp and a man, posing cheek to cheek for the camera.
