Publisher's Summary

There comes a time in every man's life when he says to himself, "Holy shit! I'm about to be eaten by a bear!"   

Tony James Slater went to Ecuador determined to become a man. It never occurred to him that "or die trying" might be an option....   

The trouble with volunteering in a South American animal refuge is that everything wants a piece of you. And the trouble with being Tony is that most of them got one.   

Just how do you "look after" something that's trying its damnedest to kill you and eat you? And how do you find love when you A.) don't speak the language and B.) are constantly covered in excrement and entrails? 

If only he'd had some relevant experience other than owning a pet rabbit when he was nine. And if only he'd bought some travel insurance....  

That Bear Ate My Pants! is the hilarious tale of one man's quest to better himself. Whether losing a machete fight with a tree, picking dead tarantulas out of a tank of live ones, or sewing the head back onto a partially decapitated crocodile, Tony's misadventures are ridiculous, unbelievable, and always entertaining.   

Long before Sky One got involved, there were already plenty of idiots abroad. This is the story of one of them....   

This audiobook is now the first in a series following Tony's adventures through the UK and Thailand in Don't Need the Whole Dog! and around Australia in Kamikaze Kangaroos! They can be listened to separately or together just as easily.
