American Crocodiles
Crocodylus acutus


Rio Tárcoles Bridge, Costa Rica




Despite being one of the most contaminated rivers in Costa Rica, these crocodiles thrive here. American Crocodiles occur from South Florida to the northern parts of South America -- many people don't know that we have native crocodiles in the Americas, but in Florida, about 2,000 of these crocs share space with American alligators!
