About this book

This book focuses on the many skills that crocodilians have which have enabled their survival since the Mesozoic. Crocodylus porosus is equally at home in the sea and freshwater, and Grigg explores the physiological mechanisms that support this. As the largest surviving 'cold blooded' reptile, they provide a window on the probable body temperature of dinosaurs.
