The plot "What Monkeys Can Do" tells about the intelligent activity of monkeys. Scientists of the Institute of Physiology of the USSR Academy of Sciences named after I.P. Pavlova set up a number of experiments with macaques and orangutans in natural conditions of the Pskov region. The newsreel includes the following footage: Lake, trees on the shore, forest glade. Dawn, a swan floats on the lake. Two ducks stand on the shore. Monkeys jump on tree branches, play in the meadow, pick flowers, perform tasks of scientists. Bees fly near the nest among the stones on the shore of the lake. The rabbit runs away from the monkeys into the forest. The viper is crawling on the grass.
