Description

By Rom and Zai Whitaker this 152-page softcover book is about the wildlife and people of New Guinea as seen by a 'croc man' and his wife.

 A naturalist's dream, the island still hides many mysteries in her vast swamp forests, sinuous rivers and craggy young mountains. ‘Supported by vivid, black and white and colour photographs and exquisite illustrations Crocodile Fever offers a 'croc's eye view' of one of the world's last unknowns.

The authors' fascination for the dangerous and the unexplored makes this book an exciting natural history chronicle in which New Guinea with its spectacular wildlife comes alive.
