The early years of an exotic animal veterinarian. An enthralling, fascinating, hilarious, wonderful story. One thing that impressed me was how much a pioneer Taylor was – no anaesthetic dart guns, no zoo or exotic animals classes in vet school back in the '40s and '50s – yet Taylor made it work. I loved his assessment of Christian outlooks on animals, the drug-dealing Arab episode and especially his anecdotes about the chimps. They certainly are a lot smarter than we think!
DAVID TAYLOR has written for Smithsonian, the Washington Post, the Christian Science Monitor, and elsewhere. His documentary work has appeared on the Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, the Learning Channel, PBS, and National Geographic. He lives in Alexandria, Virginia.More about David Taylor...
