About the author
Dan Eatherley is a British naturalist, writer and environmental consultant.
Way back in 1995, with a newly-minted first class zoology degree from Oxford University under his belt, Dan headed for Bristol, UK, the centre for natural history TV production with fantasies of filming on tropical islands.
Since then he has made a variety of documentaries for the BBC, National Geographic and the Discovery Channel, rising to the heady heights of assistant producer on two series hosted by Sir David Attenborough, Life of Mammals and Planet Earth.
He has worked in swamps, deserts and jungles around the world. He has almost been blown up by Krakatau volcano. He has encouraged a dead salmon to spawn in ice-cold water. He has (twice) provided moral support to ducklings as they leapt forty feet to the ground from a tree hole.
Dan also found time to write articles on science and environmental issues for New Scientist, Scientific American and BBC Wildlife magazines. More than 100 of them, in fact.
June 2015 saw the publication of Dan's non-fiction book, Bushmaster: Raymond Ditmars and the Hunt for the World's Largest Viper launched by Arcade (part of Skyhorse, New York City).
When not looking for giant venomous reptiles and plotting his next book Dan works as a consultant in environmental sustainability and is a senior research fellow at the University of Exeter Business School.
