520    With his artist's eye, scientist's precision, and 
       explorer's free spirit, Dinets, a Russian immigrant and 
       Louisiana State University professor, is no ordinary 
       zoologist. Here, he leads readers on an intense and joyous
       global pursuit of the mating customs of crocodiles (as 
       well as his own), chronicling the adventures in fieldwork 
       that would inform his graduate thesis.
