My Urban Safari
Gary Oliver with Wendy Bancroft

Many of the animals you see in movies are supplied by Gary Oliver. The animals come from Cinemazoo, Gary's home for exotic pets of all kinds, from 10" long millipedes to snapping turtles, alligators and hedgehogs. On set, he's their wrangler—he makes them do what they're supposed to do. But, Gary is also their protector. Virtually all of his animals have been rescued, and he's taken on a mission to help others, especially children and youth, learn about responsible ownership and species preservation. It's been a long journey to get here, and it's not over yet. This book follows Gary's adventures and misadventures on the road to Cinemazoo.
