Cuban crocodile (Crocodylus rhombifer) can only be found in Cuba's Zapata swamps and in la cienaga de Lanier, isle of Youth, it is critically endangered. This is a small to mid-sized crocodilian, that picture was taken in the criadero de crocodilos, a breeding center for the Rhombifier and the Acutus (caiman), and a sanctuary for sixteen species of endangered reptiles.

A beautiful creature, I have never seen a croc with these colors, it is like a cross between a crocodile and a leopard. Fantastic animal. And as beautiful as it is, I hope you didn't get too close to it! Love how you have presented it here in its natural surroundings.

Hi Miguel, A very helpful data you gave in your note about this Cuban Crocodile. I was in Cuba twice and I was in the city area not the remote area of the city. Great composition and colours. The water in the swamp I expected it is muddy to see, actually it is quite clear. Thank very much for sharing

That looks like one chubby crocodile. It's a very nice photo from 1999. Is it scanned or originally digital?

Very nice presentation of the crocodile in its natural environment . These animals are masters of camouflage and this one has remarkable markings on it. Nice clarity and lighting and I especially like the reflections on the lake. Very nice.

It looks a bit more with brown color, Miguel, sure a diff. specie from the Florida and African cousins.
Endangered dangerous creature. Camouflage with the green grass well seen.

I might have tried tighter framing or a crop excluding most of the grassy fg but this is still fine as is. Excellent sharpness and superb reflections in the pool. Don't be fooled by the sluggish appearance of these giant dinosaur lizards. They can move lightning fast when they want to! Tfs!
