Broad-snouted Caiman

There are 24 different species of crocodile currently in existence. The broad-snouted caiman belongs to those
that can be found both in freshwater and in salt water. Our individual is the oldest resident of the Gdańsk Zoo and the only representative of this species in all of Poland. It was brought to Oliwa in 1956 as a gift from the M/S Walter sailors.

  • Latin name: Caiman latirostris
