Book summary

This compelling book combines dramatic accounts of attacks on humans by crocodiles in Australia and intriguing information on how these creatures---cousins of the alligators that are found in our southern states---live, breed, and stalk their prey. Providing vivid reconstructions of many case histories, Hugh Edwards explores the dangers that exist in tropical and semitropical waters when humans are not aware of the presence of crocodiles or of the simple precautions to take to avoid provoking attaches. The true stories he recounts are hair-raising, and the information he imparts on crocodile behavior is fascinating. [via]
