Did you know?!

Caimans are better at swimming than walking.

Kaaiman Close Up

Broad-snouted caiman

His short mouth has 68-78 sharp teeth with which he can crack snails easily. Larger caimans can even bite through a turtle shell. The water snails they eat often transmit parasites to cattle. Due to the decrease in the number of caimans, the number of infections in cattle has increased.
