Chaotic attractors containing Shilnikov's saddle-focus homoclinic orbits have been observed in many physical systems. Past and current researches of this type of Shilnikov homoclinic phenomena have focused on the orbit and nearby structures only. In this paper we will look at the role such orbits play in a type of attractor, which arises from one-dimensional return maps at the singular limits of some singularly perturbed systems. Results on symbolic dynamics, natural measures, and Lyapunov exponents are obtained for a sequence of a one-parameter caricature family of such attractors.
