"A joy to read. Kent Vliet is truly one of the world's most informed experts on virtually every aspect of the biology and conservation of the American alligator. Every chapter presents something new about alligators that I didn't know, and I've been teaching about them for twenty-five years! I think it will inspire many people, young and old, to study alligators and appreciate them."

"Dr. Vliet is the quintessential biologist. His entire career has been focused on learning everything about alligators and, as he demonstrates within his book, he has attained a level of knowledge few people could hope to gain."

"Alligators is a stirring and vivid portrayal of the iconic monarch of the southern wetlands. Packed with anecdotes and close encounters from Kent A. Vliet's years in the field, and beautifully illustrated with stunning photos by Wayne Lynch, this is a must-read for all biologists, herpetologists, and crocodile enthusiasts."

"Vliet, the foremost expert on the American alligator and a recognized world authority on crocodilians, has created the best book on the American alligator ever published. His personal observations in the field are written in such a way that makes you feel like you are there, along with the author, and will make the book appeal to any naturalists, conservation enthusiasts, and professional biologists."
