    I started a new thread last week in the "TV, Movies, Books about Zoos" forum announcing the impending release of a new book about Taronga written by one of it's longest serving keepers. I thought I should link to it in this forum as well.

    Thanks for that Hix - I didn't know about it.

    I'll buy it. I'm a sucker for books like this. Also, I'm old(ish) but I refuse to die until Steve Robinson writes a book and I read it!

    Maybe you should do one too Hix. I dunno if you can write but the photos alone would make it a winner.

    Mate, I am so busy at the moment that you'll be getting a telegram from King William before I get around to writing it!:D

    Ah well, looks like I'm going to have to get up there and talk to you in person. :)
