Herr Randow and his wife went to Ceylon to collect wild animals for Hagenbeck's Zoo in Hamburg. In this book, he gives a full, fascinating account of his adventurous life there, in which he seems to have encountered every kind of wild creature on the island.

The teeming variety of these jungle creatures, and the almost incredible strangeness of many of them, make every chapter of this book a wonderful new story. Not only are there the thrills of danger as Herr Randow encounters the most savage tigers, bears and crocodiles. There are also the thrills of discovery as he comes cross giant lizards, minute turtles, rare snakes, fantastic insect5s, and fish that climb trees!

Condition: Very Good with Very Good dustjacket. The book is clean, with only minor foxing. The dustjacket has a few minor tears and wear, but is exceptionally good for its age. (Click on image above for close-up of cover).
