World Wild Vet: Encounters in the Animal Kingdom
Captivated by snakes and lizards as a youth, and as the world further opens up to him, veterinarian Evan Antin finds a love for all the animals he encounters. Searching out wildlife isolated within remote habitats, he travels throughout the world filming and describing the animals he encounters. His spellbinding descriptions and enthusiastic affection for the fish, amphibians, reptiles and mammals he interacts with make a compelling read. Travel with him through Australia, the jungles of central and South America, Southeast Asia and gasp as he communicates with giant snakes, colorful vipers, massive crocodiles. Follow through to the Tahiti where he swims with humpback whales and collects their shed skin fragments for genetic studies or dives with sharks in the Bahamas. Tag along as he works with Asian elephants, African rhinos, and giraffes in efforts to protect and preserve these endangered species. Join in his efforts to inform the world of the threatened species and the need for preservation and conservation. Once started, the reader becomes entranced by this attractive and engaging animal lover who shares his respect for the dignity of all animals with the public through his appealing educational videos that try to familiarize this audience with the living creatures that share our planet. Inclusion of the animal photos together with drawings would further have enhanced this animated tale.
