Carl the Misunderstood Crocodile

Carl the Misunderstood Crocodile

All Carl the crocodile wants is to have a friend.


But life as a crocodile is hard, and everyone keeps misunderstanding his intentions. When a new beast comes to the mangroves, Carl discovers who his real friends are.


This delightful, children's picture book explores the topics of conservation as well as friendship. Suitable for kids of all ages, Carl's journey gives a peek inside the real life ACES heroes on Ambergris Caye, Belize who have devoted their life to rescue, rehabilitation and education of all of the animals on this tiny island, especially the often misunderstood American Crocodile.

Although this is a book about saving animals, animal conservation and, of course, a crocodile named Carl, Carl the Misunderstood Crocodile is also a lovely children's book about friendship and how that friendship may be found in some of the most unexpected places. As an endangered species, the American Crocodile needs all of the friends it can get. So come take a literary journey to Ambergris Caye, Belize. We hope you and your child will make friends with Carl too!
