Alligators, Sharks & Panthers
Deadly Encounters With Florida's Top Predator-- ManeBook - 2017
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.
