Alligator or Crocodile? A Compare and Contrast Book
bookpage.php?id=AlligatorCroc
Some of the most often confused reptiles are alligators and crocodiles. While both are crocodilians and, in some cases, may even inhabit the same areas, they are quite different. Readers learn what they have in common and how to tell them apart. Both spend time on land and in water. One eats small animals but the other preys on animals larger than they are! One tends to have wide snouts and the other has v-shaped snouts. Explore fascinating facts about these large (and scary) animals in this latest installment of the Compare and Contrast Book series.
