Photo of the Day: Dwarf Caiman

24 03 2007

I love getting water-level shots of crocodilians; here’s one of a dwarf caiman at the Bronx Zoo.

Dearf Caiman

Although it’s neat to see all the different snakes and turtles, I’ve always been a little ambivalent about Reptile Houses in general. There typically isn’t much space, so lots of snakes and lizards and caimans are cramped into small displays. Granted, some things are content just to sit under their heat lamp and not do very much and during the winter the animals have to be inside, but I wish there was a way to give them a bit more space.
