Riassunto: Alligators are reptiles with one thing on their minds: meat. These cold-blooded animals make horrible pets. That doesn't stop some people from trying to make them pets though. Often the alligators get too big to care for and their owners release them into the wild. Readers will find out why some states don't even allow people to feed alligators and what is being done to control the alligator population.
From Booklist: Young readers who pick up this volume in the When Pets Attack! series expecting a great deal of gory excitement may be disappointed to learn that only four pages directly address the dangers of alligators. However, the book is loaded with fascinating facts about alligators. For example, they are found only in China and the southeastern U.S.; the jaw holds the key to telling the difference between an alligator and a crocodile; and they can run up to 11 miles per hour in pursuit of prey. The photos—of alligator handlers, baby gators popping through eggs, and so on—are intrinsically interesting though sometimes presented without sufficient context. Still, this is effective enough to draw in reluctant readers and give anyone curious a basic alligator overview. Grades 3-5. --Connie Fletcher
