I hope that people reading this book have as much fun as I did writing it. I was inspired by Douglas Botting’s biography of my hero Gerald Durrell. It told the story of the great man’s life with wit and aplomb and was not afraid to reveal all the facets of his remarkable life – warts and all.
My life and achievements are miniscule compared to Durrell’s, but after fourteen years of running the world’s largest cryptozoological research group I thought it was time its story was told – warts and all! And, golly! There are some warts!!
