Alligators, Sharks & Panthers takes a hard look at the complex and often strained
relationship between mankind and our fellow predators. Worldwide, over one hundred
million sharks are killed annually while less than a dozen people are killed by sharks
during that same time period. The American alligator was only removed from the
endangered species list in 1987 and the Florida panther struggles to survive on an
ever more crowded peninsula. In a fascinating twist, this book also takes a sobering
look at the future of the world's top predator - Man!
Since 1948 there have been more than four hundred alligator attacks in Florida. Ponce de
Leon's fabled "La Florida" leads the world in unprovoked shark attacks, recording more than
500 since 1882. Although extremely rare, panther attacks in the Sunshine State have been
historically authenticated. For the first time ever, discover the real true life stories behind
the newspaper headlines on over two dozen fatal alligator and shark attacks that have
happened across Florida. Learn how these dangerous predators behave and how you
can avoid becoming the next statistic.
