As some of the oldest species on the planet, alligators and crocodiles have no natural enemies. Except for man, that is. In the event of a confrontation between the two, it's not uncommon for the crocodile to be the victor. Killer Gators and Crocs describes alligator and crocodile attacks from around the world, from the most gruesome, to the most deserved. It explains what compels these reptiles to attack humans and what can be done to prevent an attack.
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.
