Crocodiles & Alligators


American Alligator (Alligator Mississippiensis)
A member of the crocodile family, alligators are living fossils that can be traced back 230 million years.
First listed as an endangered species in 1967, the American alligator was removed from the endangered species list in 1987 after the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service pronounced a complete recovery of the species. Population: Once on the brink of extinction, well over a million alligators can be found today in Florida, Louisiana, Texas, and Georgia. Threats: Once hunted for their hides, alligators today are threatened mainly by habitat loss and encounters with people. Survival: Alligators can live 35 to 50 years in the wild. In captivity, 60 to 80 years.

Spectacled Caiman (Caiman crocodilus)

The caiman is small in comparison to other lizard species. It has a short tail and a short, smooth head with a high skull and upturned snout. They also have a pronounced overbite. Their irises are generally brown but can take on greenish tinge. Juveniles are brown with banding; adults have chocolate brown heads, and their jaws are flecked with white bands. Caimans closely resemble alligators except for the small bony scales embedded in the skin of their belly.
