    Abstract

    The forensic science identification of crocodilian hides and products is an immense task that requires the efforts of the forensic science examiner. Positive identifications of reptilian species must be made for use in litigation against traffickers in hides and products of protected species. Two example cases of identification and litigation are presented, and methods of identification are enumerated.
