Editorial Reviews

Wildlife Activist
People have been fascinated and horrified by encounters with crocodilians for millennia. All 23 species of crocodilians from the five and one-half foot Dwarf Caimen of South America to the 23 foot Saltwater Crocodile of Australia are covered in this book. There is an especially handy section with facts and a range map for each species.
The Herald
Alligators & Crocodiles has a soft cover but is suitable for even the finest coffee tables. It contains some of the best nature photography I have ever seen.
