From the Back Cover:

As some of the oldest species on the planet, alligators and crocodiles have no natural enemies. Except for humans, that is. But in the event of a confrontation between man and beast, it’s common for the crocodilian to be the victor. Killer Gators and Crocs describes alligator and crocodile attacks from around the world, including deadly encounters and miraculous escapes. Some were unavoidable tragedies, but many were the gruesome result of foolish mistakes. This book explains what compels these reptiles to attack humans and what can be done to prevent an attack.
Garlock writes in detail about attacks from Egypt, China, Africa, South America, and the United States, including details of Florida’s three most recent confrontations. The resulting stories dramatically recreate these attacks and
then examine their causes. Meticulously researched and chock-full of expert knowledge, Killer Gators and Crocs stands as a vital and important part of
our literature on nature and survival.

About the Author:

Michael Garlock has written extensively about reptiles for many national publications, including Reptile magazine, Florida Naturalist, Reptile & Amphibian Hobbyist, and Wildland Firefighter magazine. He lives in Naples, Florida.
