Imagine that you notice some squinty eyes and a snout poking out of the water—it is a crocodile waiting for his next meal! Beware of the Crocodile is an informational book that discusses the sharp teeth, eating patterns, and care of baby crocodiles. The gruesome details of how a crocodile eats are not included, but descriptive verbs like lunge, splash, and thrash give the reader an idea of what meal time is like. Learning that crocodiles can go weeks without food if they have a large meal is fascinating. Additionally, intriguing facts about how a mother crocodile cares for its babies are sure to warm the heart of any animal lover.
