Overview for A Handbook of Indian Crocodiles

In all, 25 species of crocodiles are present in the world, of which 3 species represent in India, viz., Gavialis gangeticus (Gharial), Crocodilus porosus (Saltwater crocodile), and Crocodilus palustris (Mugger crocodile).

The population of crocodiles has dwindled because of their exploitation at alarming rates. Their commercially valuable skin, meat, eggs and oil made them vulnerable. Fear of spoiling the nets and vast consumption of fish, have made them enemies of fishermen. But with their protection under Indian Wildlife (Protection) Act, 1972 and special projects launched for their management and conservation enabled to protect them. Establishment of sanctuaries and special captive breeding centers at various places, their populations have now been restored in some places.

The book introduces the types of Indian crocodiles, their habits, biology, breeding, economic importance, status and distribution, their management and conservation and steps taken for their protection throughout the World and are presented in different chapters.
