Anything by Redmond O'Hanlon. This maniac travels to the most remote harsh environments looking for mythical or rare creatures. His background is ornithology so he does write quite a bit about the fauna of his destinations. He has traveled to Indonesia (Borneo or Irian Jaya?) in search of the Hairy Rhinoceros, the Orinoco Basin, and up the Congo looking for the Mbele-Mkeke? (wild guess), a Loch Ness-type creature. His books are amusing, enlightening, and save one the trouble of traveling to these extremely inhospitable locales.
