From the Book jacket: Alligators and crocodiles are among the oldest, largest, and most advanced reptiles on earth. Lurid accounts of encounters between humans and crocodilians have fascinated and horrified people over the centuries, and some truly monstrous creatures exist today. John and Deborah Behler have spent more than twenty years working with reptiles, and describe the history, habits, and prospects for survival of the remaining twenty-three species of alligator, caiman, crocodile, and gharial. Here too are breathtaking pictures of these awesome creatures by some of the world's leading wildlife photographers. Discover the world's animals with the WorldLife Library series. This highly acclaimed series brings you the latest research from leading naturalists, along with stunning color photographs of your favorite animals.
