American AlligatorBook - 2017
Scientists believe American alligators have been around for nearly 150 million years, but they came close to going extinct. This book explores the alligator's key role in its habitat, how hunting and habitat changes almost led to its extinction, and how efforts such as egg collection and controlled hunting help to preserve the species.
