This is a collection of articles, stories and poems by the well-known naturalist Zai Whitaker.
Most are about reptiles, though a few birds and tigers have managed to wiggle in as well! Zai Whitaker’s 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.
She takes us to places such as Papua New Guinea, the Andaman Islands and the Western Ghats where we meet out-of-the-way characters such as taipans and king cobras.
