Reviews

"The book is easy to read and has a strong emphasis on husbandry and pathology. Crocodilian anatomy and physiology is explained in a simple and effective manner. The work is well referenced and the enthusiasm of the author for his subject is obvious." "Fritz Huchzermeyer's long awaited book on crocodile husbandry is out, and was worth waiting for... will stand frequent consultation and years on the laboratory bench where it will be an invaluable aid to diagnosis and treatment."--Perran Ross -Fritz Huchzermeyer's long awaited book on crocodile husbandry is out, and was worth waiting for... will stand frequent consultation and years on the laboratory bench where it will be an invaluable aid to diagnosis and treatment.---Perran Ross
