A 2-8 NF Reviewed by Annette Van Wagenen Sharp-toothed, stealthy, and scaly, alligators and crocodiles have been among the most feared of predators. These giant reptiles were probably the source for fables of fire-breathing dragons and huge serpents. This book captures the wealth of “serpent” secrets by renowned science writer Seymour Simon. Discover information about the types of crocodiles and alligators and how to tell them apart. Twenty full-color photographs show such things as sharp teeth in powerful jaws, fierce mouths alert to prey, and eyes watching for a kill. Learn how these reptiles can eat their food without chewing or how an animal’s habitat may affect how long it lives. Most importantly, share the wealth of knowledge of the important role that alligators and crocodiles play in their natural surroundings.
