Are They Real?
Do They Move?

These cold blooded animals are excellent hunters that have been around for around 200 million years. In order to be an excellent hunter you need patience and be very still at times. Our caimens may not seem like they do much but they are in fact conserving energy and perhaps even waiting for food. And when there is food - boy are they quick!

Hunters Are Now
Being Hunted

These amazing animals are now being poached and hunted for their skin and the pet trade. It is important for us to help protect these animals by buying faux skin or looking for the CITES non removable tag that supports sustainable harvesting. By protecting these fascinating animals we are helping preserve the incredible biodiversity of their ecosystem.
