In a zoo, the animals get hold of a fashion magazine. They read the beauty pages. Suddenly the elephant wants to get rid of her wrinkles, the panda is distressed about the shadows around his eyes and the snake is horrified to read that snakeskin is out of fashion. They try hard to “improve”, but they are surprised to finally find that the people visiting the zoo actually like them better as their natural selves. This is a fun fable about impossible beauty ideals.
