There have been several incarnations of the Doctor Dolittle story – the man who could talk to animals. Allan Dixon is living his life in th spirit of Doctor Dolittle, but instead of talking to animals he takes selfies with them. Check out his fantastic collection here.

So how does the travelling Irishman convince a menagerie of animals to smile for the camera?

LISTEN to Allan Dixon in conversation with Bryan Crump.

Allan Dixon will speak at TEDxQueenstown on 17 April.
