Chomp by Carl Hiaasen
Wahoo Cray's life is a zoo--literally. His father, Mickey is a professional animal wrangler, so Wahoo's backyard is crawling with gators, snakes, raccoons, monkeys, and turtles. The critters, he can handle. His dad is the unpredictable one. When Mickey Cray takes a job with a reality-TV show called Expedition Survival!, Wahoo knows he'll be doing some wrangling himself--to keep his father from strangling Derek Badger the show's outrageously inept and egotistical star. The job gets off to a harrowing start when Derek stages a near-disastrous scene with Alice, the Cray's gigantic gator.
