About this title


Introduces alligators, describing their physical characteristics, habitat, behavior, discussing why these animals are unsuitable as pets, and state laws pertaining to owning and feeding them.

From Booklist:

Young readers who pick up this volume in the When Pets Attack! series expecting a great deal of gory excitement may be disappointed to learn that only four pages directly address the dangers of alligators. However, the book is loaded with fascinating facts about alligators. For example, they are found only in China and the southeastern U.S.; the jaw holds the key to telling the difference between an alligator and a crocodile; and they can run up to 11 miles per hour in pursuit of prey. The photos—of alligator handlers, baby gators popping through eggs, and so on—are intrinsically interesting though sometimes presented without sufficient context. Still, this is effective enough to draw in reluctant readers and give anyone curious a basic alligator overview. Grades 3-5. --Connie Fletcher
