Alligators start their life in a small egg, but they can grow to be twelve feet long and weigh 550 pounds! Mother alligators try to keep their babies safe from birds and raccoons. Baby alligators eat bugs, frogs, and small fish; adult alligators eat snakes, turtles, and birds. Alligators eat their food whole and can live to be fifty years old! Readers will learn all this and more in Alligators Eat and Grow.
