What are scutes? How do people count alligators when they hide in wetlands? How did the American alligator become endangered and then increase its population? There are not many success stories in conservation, but in Alligator you will read about one. The American alligator has gone from the brink of extinction to hanging around golf courses because there are so many of them trying to fit into the available wetlands. It is a mean-looking animal, but the females are one of the few reptiles to care for their babies. Get a close look at these scary and fascinating animals in Alligator.
