Durrell soon found himself beginning a new career with the discovery (in the person of a large and ill-tempered male named Albert) that not all lions are noble, and that almost everything written about them is untrue. He then goes on to make the acquaintance of a remarkably friendly tiger named Paul, a polar bear whose paw needs doctoring, a raccoon-like dog, a wombat named Peter, Pere Davids deer... and many more.
