  • This film has a few shots of the Florida crocodile, scenes of gators in the wild and shots of a man with a gator skull. There is a great sequence of a game warden handling a nuisance gator in which the warden's thumb is bitten and the gator's jaws are pried apart to free the thumb. The gator is hog-tied, muzzled with thick rope, strapped to the hood of a jeep and released into a river. Loggerhead turtles are shown swimming and laying eggs. Viewers also see their eggs hatching and their young heading for the water.
