A very, very still Dwarf Caiman (Paleosuchus palpebrosus) at the National Aquarium in Baltimore’s spectacular Amazon River Forest exhibit. The exhibit was just being misted by automatic foggers which gave the background an even more realistic feel.

The Dwarf Caiman is also known as Cuvier’s Dwarf Caiman or the Musky Caiman, and hails from northern and central South America. A relatively small crocodilian with a total length ranging from 4 to 5 feet, the Dwarf Caiman lives near fast stretches of stream, and in nutrient-deficient waters. It’s diet consists of fish and invertebrates. It uses burrows as shelter during the day, and lays eggs on a mounded nest which hatch in about three months.

Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Chordata
Class: Sauropsida
Order: Crocodilia
Family: Alligatoridae
Genus: Paleosuchus
