Spectacled Caiman

The spectacled caiman (Caiman crocodilus), also known as the white caiman or common caiman, is a crocodilian reptile found in much of Central and South America. It lives in a range of lowland wetland and riverine habitat types, and can tolerate salt water, as well as fresh; due in part to this adaptability, it is the most common of all crocodilian species.

안경카이만악어 (眼鏡-鰐魚 Caiman crocodilus)

악어목 앨리게이터과의 악어. 전체길이 1.5∼2.5m. 눈 앞쪽에 있는 융조(隆條)가 안경을 낀 것처럼 보이기 때문에 이 이름이 붙었다. 먹이는 어류·갑각류·양서류 등이고, 자라면서 물가에 오는 작은 포유류도 잡아먹는다. 4∼7월 무렵 물가의 식물 조각을 모아서 집을 만들며 18∼40개 정도의 알을 낳는다. 알은 2개월 정도면 부화하고 새끼는 애완용으로 사육된다. 성질은 온순하며 사람을 잘 따르나 자라면 물기도 한다. 남아메리카 북부의 민물에 분포한다.
