This short subject visits three animal parks in Miami, Florida, all of which still operate today. At the time of filming, these attractions were considered to be in the outskirts of the city. The first stop is the Rare Bird Farm, where many rare chickens, cranes, and other birds are on display. Then it's off to the Monkey Jungle, where the visitors are caged and the simian inhabitants roam in freedom. The last stop is the Parrot Jungle. Written by

Warner short goes to a couple farms in Florida that features rare birds and beasts like monkeys. This documentary short might entertain young kids but I found it pretty boring throughout its ten-minute running time. We get to learn about flamingos, peacocks and others birds but the narration is so bland that it's hard to get excited about what you're watching. Another problem is that the narration tries to tell jokes throughout the film and most of them come off very lame. The monkey sequence is a lot better as we get to see the famous Bubbles in action. This is about the only interesting thing in this forgotten short.
