You Belong in a Zoo!: Tales from a Lifetime Spent with Cobras, Crocs, and Other Extraordinary Creatures by Peter Brazaitis

From catching alligators in the reservoirs of New York and capturing giant crocodiles in Venezuela and giant frogs in West Africa to finding mummified human heads in a Bronx apartment, eels on a bus, cobras on the loose, and crocodiles that make changea memoir of one mans career working with exotic reptiles and other animals. After the teenage Peter Brazaitis brought home one creepy crawly creature too many, his stepmother declared, You are an animal, and you belong in a zoo! He took her at her word. He went directly from high school in Brooklyn to a job at the Reptile House at the Bronx Zoo, where he stayed for more than thirty years, eventually becoming superintendent of reptiles. He later became curator of the Central Park Zoo, and continues to work with law enforcement as a forensic specialist in the fight to stop illegal importation and slaughter of reptiles for the luxury exotic-leather industry. (His effectiveness at this would earn him the moniker The Bald-Headed Snake Keeper in the Bronx.) You Belong in a Zoo! presents the amazing experiences Brazaitis has had in more than four decades of working with wild animals. Enlightening, funny, and often outrageous, You Belong in a Zoo! is a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at zoos, animal people, and some of natures most extraordinary creatures.
