Yesterday our summer reading program, "G'day for Reading," kicked off with a well-attended registration party (see pictures here). Australia is this year's theme, but what besides kangaroos do you think of when the word "Australia" is mentioned? Crocodile Dundee? The Crocodile Hunter? Crocodiles? Yes!
So, in honor of our summer reading program, I'd like to mention a few items for adults to look at to get them in the crocodilly spirit:
Crocodile Dundee. [DVD CRO] "When a fearless Australian crocodile hunter arrives in New York under the guidance of a beautiful and tenacious reporter, it's culture shock all around."
The Crocodile Hunter. [650 CRO] This set of VHS tapes features the late Steve Irwin in three episodes of his Animal Planet program, "Steve's Story," "Steve's Most Dangerous Adventures," and "Greatest Crocodile Captures."
Irwin, Steve, and Terri Irwin. The Crocodile Hunter: The Incredible Life of Steve and Terri Irwin. [920 IRW]
Rue, Leonard Lee, III. Alligators and Crocodiles: A Portrait of the Animal World. [597.98 RUE] "A photographic celebration of alligators and crocodiles, providing information about the characteristic differences between the two species, their feeding and breeding traits, and the truth about crocodilians as maneaters."
Just this week, I read an article about crocodile hatchlings that you won't want to miss--especially the photos!
