Summary
With his artist's eye, scientist's precision, and explorer's free spirit, Dinets, a Russian immigrant and Louisiana State University professor, is no ordinary zoologist. Here, he leads readers on an intense and joyous global pursuit of the mating customs of crocodiles (as well as his own), chronicling the adventures in fieldwork that would inform his graduate thesis
