Crocodiles and alligators have always been one of humankind's most feared predators. Around since the days of the dinosaurs, they are probably the source of myths about ferocious serpents and man-eating dragons. All tall tales aside, these reptiles remain fascinating creatures.

Renowned science writer Seymour Simon's accessible text, and full-color photos, provide a stellar introduction to these reptile wonders.
