Jonathan Cranston – Raworths Harrogate Literature Festival


October 20, 2018


Jonathan Cranston isn’t just your everyday vet, he’s an international veterinary practitioner, author and wait for it – veterinary film consultant. When Jonathan watched the first Jurassic World movie as a teenager, never in a million years did he expect he’ll be involved in one of the sequels. Swapping dogs for dinosaurs, Jonathan advised on Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom, helping to bring the animatronic dinosaurs to life. He got the gig thanks to his experience working with African wildlife. From pets to pandas, he’s travelled across five continents, and in his new book he brings the animal kingdom to life exploring the world’s most iconic animals, and the human relationships involved.
