to know what it's like to prowl the
wilds of Taiwan to photograph
and other wild critters? This book tells it all! In A Cobra Hijacked My Camera Bag!, Hans Breuer searches for a new pet ratsnake in
Taipei restaurants, loses a coral snake in his living room,
confronts a cobra in complete darkness, and assumes
unorthodox yogic postures to photograph kraits, habus, and
bamboo vipers. Between the tree ferns of Taiwan's lush,
rugged mountains, Hans draws us along to experience a
fantastic variety of snakes, along with turtles, civets,
pangolins, and other representatives of the island's immense
biodiversity. During his constant search for reptiles and
amphibians, Hans introduces the best of Taiwan with quirky
humor, while educating the reader in remarkable detail.
Twenty-two years on the island, and fluency in Mandarin
Chinese, has given Hans a broad experience with all facets
of Taiwan life, complementing his herpetological
observations. We learn about family relations, food and
drinking customs, dealing with curious police officers, and
the aboriginal relationship to Taiwan's rich animal life.
With this book in hand, you don't need a plane ticket to
enjoy the thrill of herping Taiwan, but after reading Hans'
adventures, you might just book your next vacation there!
