Systemvoraussetzungen
It takes a lot to unsettle a vet who has been in practice for a career spanning a good few decades, but when Mike Hardwich learnt that the wattled crane from the Hlatikulu sanctuary with the badly broken wing needing his urgent attention was also the only breeding male in captivity in South Africa, and one of a highly endangered species, he knew he could not afford to make any mistakes. This and all the other stories in this the third book in his memoirs trilogy, following on from the bestselling The Lion and the Lamb and The Rhino and the Rat, makes riveting and unforgettable reading. With his infectious mix of humour and humility, and drawing on a broad range of experiences, Mike recounts in The Tiger and the Tortoise his endearing tales of treating creatures wild, wonderful and sometimes downright weird, including an encounter with an untrustworthy zebra, a llama in the Midlands who contemptuously spat in his face, and domestic pets whose owners probably needed more treatment than they did. We get to know Mike's own story along the way, as the boy who carried baby chicks in his school blazer pocket and who never got to ride his first horse, to his grandmother's talkative parrot who could command a span of oxen, and to the next generation of animal carers in his daughter Dale, whose patience and gentle skills reap multiple rewards for all.
