This is a collection articles, stories and poems by the famous naturalist Zai Whitaker. Most are about reptiles, though a few birds and tigers have managed to wriggle in as well. Her adventures and experiences are unique, and often stranger than fiction. Told with her trademark brand of humour, these pieces are also full of fascinating information about animals, places and people. Through her stories, we are taken to places like Papua New Guinea and the Western Ghats, where we meet out-of-way characters such as taipans and king cobras. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in natural history. Or for anyone who enjoys good writing, anecdotes and an occasional laugh.
