A personal view of the natural world 'I dare say my mind would wander over a range of animals remarkable for the extravagance of their reproductive techniques, - Sir David Attenborough, when asked which animal he would like to be if he returned to Earth. This fantasy reincarnation was reserved only when in ,racy, company, said the distinguished wildlife broadcaster. But in more sober company, he would go for a sloth, which hangs upside-down all day. The sloth is Sir David,s first essay in this collection of his own personal insight into the natural world around us. He also talks about his first ever pet, a salamander, and his favourite animal - the bird of paradise, as well as living fossils, flying dinosaurs, dragons and the strange antics of the duck-billed platypus. This is Sir David looking at the wildlife that has captured his imagination and enthusiasm over his distinguished career in TV, then wildlife TV. It is a fascinating trip around the world in search of extraordinary plants and animals, in the company of this wonderful communicator.
