One of the best science books of its kind. A superb reference book that is still packed with biological and behavioral details about the remaining large reptiles on Erath. Sadly, it is out of print today. Worth purchasing for your reference library.

Do not have time to get into a review now. In fact, I am revising an alligator article right now. I am a Wildlife Biologist of 40 years. I never knew Wilfed Neill. But his book is fascinating, and belongs alongside E.L. McElhenny's Life History of American Alligator. More later.

I bought this book sometime in the early 1980s. The author adds nothing new to the field of herpetology. The book contains numerous assertions that previous authors were wrong and yet the fact is that recent studies concerning crocodilians have found that it is the author, Wilfred Neill, who is stupidly wrong. This book is an example of academic arrogance. A blatant example is on page 370 concerning the Nile crocodile. "Herodotus said that the female crocodile exercises some kind of supervision over her young. This is the origin of the assertion, still to be found in the scientific literature, that the female of the Nile crocodile (and of various other crocodilians) cares for her brood." "Man, in whom the mammalian care of young reaches its highest development, is quick to imagine some parent-young interaction when he sees young organisms with an adult of their own kind." The fact is that it is now well documented that crocodilians do care for their brood. Nile crocodile mothers have been filmed carrying their hatching young in their mouths to the water. A further example is on page 439 were the author discounts the adult gharial's nose appendage. He states it "...existed only in the imagination of early writers." This further demonstrates the author's ignorance and arrogance.

If you seek knowledge of crocodilians, do not buy this book. If you seek an example of ivory tower arrogance, this is a great piece of fiction.
