A pot-pourri of humorous animal anecdotes concocted by the famous wildlife lover, leading conservationist and award-winning author, Gerald Durrell. Hectic, hilarious days at his Jersey zoo and forays to various corners of the earth to rescue animal species in danger of extinction provide a series of wonderful stories that are wry, witty and wonderful. Apes get loose, tigers get pregnant and women fall by the droves for a handsome zoo keeper. Endearingly funny, occasionally outrageous, Catch me a Colobus is classic Gerald Durrell.

Gerald Durrell was one of Britain’s best-loved naturalists, whose books, including My Family and Other Animals, continue to entertain and amuse generations of children and adults alike. Fifteen of his classic titles have now been republished by Bello.

5.0 out of 5 stars More amusing animal anecdotes 23 April 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Gerald Durrell describes more amusing, informative and sometimes even tragic adventures with animals. The first part of the book covers the establishment of Jersey zoo (and therefore repeats a little of the earlier book 'Menagerie Manor') then moves on to an animal collecting expedition in Sierra Leone - a real gem in the Durrell corpus. The book then returns to the zoo and catches up with some of the animals from the first section. Finally, Durrell recounts his expedition to Mexico in search of Volcano rabbits. This book is, therefore, a bit of a mish-mash of stories but, as ever, it is a well-written and witty collection of delightful vignettes where the animals with their all-too-human characteristics are the stars of the show.
