Ryan's dad, Samson, and his friends, Benny the squirrel, Nigel the koala, Bridgette the giraffe and Larry the snake hide in a garbage truck headed to New York. They make it to a shipyard and see the crate on a ship. They hijack a boat and follow. They all end up on an island where the animals are being rescued due to a volcano. Samson is able to find Ryan.
However, a herd of wildebeasts tired of being at the bottom of the food chain decide become carnivores and they attack Samson and Ryan. Samson falls off a cliff and Ryan is taken captive.
