Swimming With Piranhas at Feeding Time
My Life Doing Dumb Stuff With AnimalsBook - 2009
Award-winning nature writer Richard Conniff takes the reader on a thrilling journey deep in to the domains of strange--and often dangerous--animals. His many ill-advised forays include: pulling a huge snapping turtle out of a Louisiana bayou, tracking leopards with iKung San hunters in the Namibian desert, and flinging chicken carcasses into piranha-infested waters to check how quickly they disappear before diving in himself.
