"It started with gunshots. And screaming..." THE TRAGIC PAST WAS THEIR UNDOING
After a long and difficult debate, Mark and Tatiana decide to share their discovery of Ally and her species. Enlisting the aid of one of the local university’s biology professors, Dr. Henry Sanders, the young couple start compiling research to get protective status for the crocodiles, which Tatiana officially names “singing crocodiles”. They develop a deeper friendship with Ally, and despite the language barrier, find ways of communicating through music.
Even as they make progress on finding the best balance between the crocodiles’ safety and advancing human knowledge, Mark faces other problems. His shaky relationship with his family suffers a new blow when his parents file for porce, and his inner turmoil strains his relationship with Tatiana. The uncertainty of their futures past high school makes Mark wonder if he is prepared for a large change in his life.
In a further complication, Mark’s historical research finds a wealth of information from a recently uncovered diary. From that, he learns about the first known contact between these crocodiles and humans—in the words of a young Spanish settler 400 years in the past. Her story reveals a shocking twist in the chronicles of Fontel’s people. The pressure of keeping their findings secret is increased by old wounds carrying centuries of resentment between crocodiles and humans.

EXCERPT "BY the way, what do you plan on doing with those recordings? Besides for just us, I mean. We've been doing all this research, and making these recordings, but there was that thing your dad said..." he trailed off, reluctant to bring up whatever harshness she held over that meeting.
Lowering the digital recorder, Tatiana knelt by the mp3 player and started fiddling with the setup. With her head turned away, she said, "I know. I've been thinking a lot about that. I just... I really don't know, at this point. Part of me wants to follow what he said and not tell anyone. He seemed so scared. But it's hard to tell. So many things I remember about him seemed so genuine too, but those just ended up being things that only existed in his mind."
She started trembling so much she had to put down the electronics and fold her hands over her knees. Crouching beside her, Mark rested a tender palm between her shoulder blades. With a shuddering breath, she continued. "But part of me is just dying to tell the world everything. This is an enormous discovery, like, like..." she looked up at him, eyes smelting through a glaze of unspilled tears. "Like discovering a completely new planet, right under our feet. How can we keep that to ourselves forever? How can we keep something-someone-as awesome as Ally to ourselves?"
