Dwarf crocodile?

Crocodile Nursery. Unsigned, but after discussion with a friend I believe it could be a dwarf crocodile (but not necessarily West African).

      Seeing the full photo brightened up that's definitely a caiman :p sorry for the misdirect

      A Spectacled Caiman, to be precise.

      I didn’t think it looked like a crocodile, but went off of Thylo’s advice. Guess I won’t do that in the future :p

      Thanks for the confirmation on species, Chli.

      Easy hint for Spectacled Caiman - they are named for the bridge across the snout, likened to the bridge of a pair of spectacles.

      To be fair you sent me a much, much darker photo with only the neck and head showing- and I've never claimed to be a croc expert ;)
