This film shows a family visiting the Jacksonville Zoo. It shows animals in concrete and chicken wire enclosures, elephants eating cotton candy from the visitors, and monkeys playing on their playground equipment. The narrator makes many cutesy comments as the animals are shown. The family has lunch and the film shows the snack bar with burgers, fries, corn dogs and snow cones being made. The zoo also features rides, including a merry-go-round, a roller coaster and a miniature train. Then, the zoo director and a city commissioner are seen and an animal "beauty contest" is shown. Produced by Russell-Barton Film Co.
