Sumpin' for John White

Taken through dirty glass with little kids (NOT mine) squealing and jostling
the tripod. I wouldn't have tried, but I wanted to bring something back for
John W. :-)

Thanks for the awesome pic!
It appears to be a Cuvier's Dwarf Caiman (Paleosuchus palpebrosus), the smallest
species of crocodilian. The females of this species only reach a total length of
1.2 meters and males get to about 1.5 meters. Got to love those big, beautiful
chocolate-brown irises! :-)

Thanks again!


Best Regards,

John White
