A large Nile crocodile lies in the sand and listens as other animals, some of them quite tasty, pass by. Why does this hungry crocodile only listen? A monitor lizard starts scratching the sand, and we discover the reason: a nest of crocodile eggs, almost ready to hatch. Striking images portray the animals with naturalistic detail, and brief sentences describe their behavior with bursts of onomatopoeia. Plenty of good drama and art here to entertain reptile lovers (and the rest of us!) Plus a nice appendix of facts about the hatching and hunting habits of Nile crocodiles.
