Yacare Caiman – Pantanal, Brazil 2016

The awesome yacare caiman.
Only recently was the caiman found in the Pantanal split off from the spectacled caiman and declared a species in its own right – the yacare or yacare caiman. Although one of the small crocodilians, the yacare caiman can reach 3m in length. They are fearsome hunters with their muscular tail, massive jaws, sharp teeth and incredible strength.
