|Cuban Crocodile (Crocodylus rhombifer)
| Zapata Swamp, Cuba
These photos were taken at the Crocodile Farm in the Zapata Swamp where there was healthy looking fencing between me and the crocodiles.
These crocodiles are endemic to the Zapata Swamp in Cuba and their numbers are declining. With less than 6,000 in the wild, they are classified as Endangered.
|One of the significant features of this crocodile is the bony ridge behind the eyes.
