Tony Slater (TonyJamesSlater) | 8 comments Hi folks! Thanks for checking out my thread.

'That Bear Ate My Pants!' is a crazy travel comedy, based on my misadventures whilst volunteering in an animal refuge in Ecuador.
It's the only book that answers the question: What happens when the jaguar you're carrying wakes up..?
And I'm pretty sure - not 100% mind, but close - that it's the only book where the author gets head-butted in the balls by a wild pig.

Here's the blurb:

There comes a time in every man's life when he says to himself, "Holy Sh*t! I'm about to be eaten by a bear!"

Tony James Slater went to Ecuador, determined to become a man.
It never occurred to him that 'or die trying' might be an option...

The trouble with volunteering in a South American animal refuge is that everything wants a piece of you. And the trouble with being Tony, is that most of them got one.

Just how do you 'look after' something that's trying it's damnedest to kill you and eat you?
And how do you find love when you a) don't speak the language, and b) are constantly covered in excrement and entrails?

If only he'd had some relevant experience. Other than owning a pet rabbit when he was nine. And if only he'd bought some travel insurance...

That Bear Ate My Pants is the hilarious tale of one man's quest to better himself. Whether losing a machete fight with a tree, picking dead tarantulas out of a tank of live ones or sewing the head back on to a partially decapitated crocodile, Tony's misadventures are ridiculous, unbelievable and always entertaining.

Long before Sky One got involved, there were already plenty of Idiots Abroad. This is the story of one of them...

What reviewers are saying about 'That Bear Ate My Pants!':

5 of 5 stars Freaking hilarious!
By Heather Marie Adkins
Format:Kindle Edition|Amazon Verified Purchase
Halfway through this book, my boyfriend (over breakfast) looks at me as I've laughed for the fifth time during the meal and says, "I've never seen you laugh so much at a book."
Yeah. It's that damn funny.

4.6 star average over 52 reviews (and another 56 in the UK!)

If you get chance, download the free sample - it's the first three chapters, easily enough to decide if you like my stye of humour or not. But BEWARE! It contains some stupidity. Mostly mine.
Thanks folks!
