Artist's Description

Dwarf Caiman. The Cuvier’s Dwarf Caiman (Paleosuchus palpebrosus)

“Danger Reflected” has been featured by the group “Reptiles and Amphibians” 6/08.

The Dwarf Caiman is a crocodilian reptile from northern South America. It is found in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Paraguay, Peru, Surinam and Venezuela. It lives primarily near fast stretches of stream, but also lives in nutrient-deficient waters.

It is also the smallest species of the alligatoridae family reaching up to 1.5 meters of length. Juvenile dwarf caimans eat invertebrates, while adult caimans eat both fish and invertebrates. It uses burrows as shelter during the day. It lays eggs on a mounded nest which hatch in about three months.

Retrieved from “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cuvier%27s_Dwarf_C...

This caiman is about 4 feet long. They eat many yummy things like fish and crustaceans such as minnows, crabs, mollusks, shrimps,etc. In captivity they also may eat live pinkie mice, crickets, superworms, crayfish, earthworms, turtle pellets or krill.
