One of Attenborough's earlier books, Zoo Quest in Paraguay is a compelling quest to find Armadillos in the forests of Paraguay. The narrative is made all the more interesting by the tales of how the best laid plans go oft awry; their meticulously equipped boat is made useless by a pilot who refuses to navigate some rapids. Thereafter the adventure starts. The main thing I learned from this book is never to try and confine an armadillo in a hotel bathroom; I also learned that David Attenborough is an expert writer and researcher.
