Alligators and Other Crocodilia Book 1962

This is a 92 page softcover book about alligators, crocodiles and other crocodilian species. The book is written from a Floridian’s perspective, with most of the photos coming from the state and its attractions.

While it states that its copyright is 1962, there are several references to dates as late as 1970. Much of the text is likely from the initial 1962 publication with some updates, especially on the subject of laws concerning alligators.

Photos in the book come from the Ross Allen Reptile Institute, St. Augustine Alligator Farm, Homosassa Springs, Weeki Wachee Springs, Gatorland (Orlando), Everglades Wonder Gardens, Musa Isle and Gatorland (Casper’s Alligator Farm – St. Augustine). That makes up the majority of the larger state attractions that featured alligators in the 1960s and 1970s.
