About the Book
A fascinating look at the world's scariest reptiles from best-selling author and illustrator Gail Gibbons.

Alligators and crocodiles are the world's largest reptiles and the closest living relatives of dinosaurs. Here is information about their different physical characteristics, and how they live, mate, and raise their young. Crocodilians have been around for millions of years and are now endangered.

“Gail Gibbons has taught more preschoolers and early readers about the world than any other children’s writer-illustrator.—The Washington Post
