Description

ALLIGATORS & CROCODILES offers a colorful look at the best-known survivors of the dinosaur age, the crocodilians. Alligators and crocodiles have an ancient ancestry reaching back some 200 million years, to the heart of the Age of Reptiles. Today, there are many varieties of crocodilians existing in coastal, tropical zones the world over. ALLIGATORS & CROCODILES discusses the differences between alligators and crocodiles, the feeding and breeding traits of each species, and the truth about crocodilians as man-eaters. A demand for these reptiles as food and even as pets, as well as the value of their skin for leather products, has led to the hunting of many species. Currently, however, regulations are in effect that protect these unique creatures. Illuminating in both words and remarkable pictures, ALLIGATORS & CROCODILES is just one title in the acclaimed Creatures of the Ocean series. For those who want to delve into the amazing and sometimes mysterious world of ocean life, these books are a wonderful resource filled with scientific fact and beautiful photography.
