- Author BiographyNorbert Smith, or Doc Gator as his university students called him, has spent most of his life studying alligators and other wild animals. He has written nearly 200 scientific articles, books and magazine articles. He was the first scientist to study the heart rates of animals when they are frightened. He discovered their hearts slowed when they have a safe place to hide from danger. Scientists that study reptiles and amphibians are called herpetologists. Like many of his herpetologist friends, he kept several reptiles and amphibians as pets as a child. He had a beautiful tiger salamander for 13 years. He gave it to a science teacher when he joined the Air Force after high school. He had a pet boa constrictor for 23 years. When the snake became too large to keep as a pet, he gave it to the Oklahoma City zoo so other people could enjoy it. After his honorable discharge from the Air Force, he worked in electronics for three years and wrote articles for electronic magazines such as Popular Electronics and Electrical Design News. He also wrote stories about animals for the children's magazines Highlights and Ranger Rick.
