Description The Yacare Caiman (Caiman yacare. Jacaré in Portuguese) is a species of caiman found in central South America, including northeastern Argentina, eastern Boliva, central/south-west Brazil, and the rivers of Paraguay. Approximately 10 million individual Yacare Caiman exist within the Brazilian Pantanal, representing what is quite possibly the largest single crocodilian population on Earth. As a medium-small sized crocodilian, most adult individuals grow to roughly 2 or 2.5 meters in length, with the occasional 3 meter individual (there are reports of occasional 4 meter individuals within the Pantanal, but this is yet to be verified.) Their smaller size makes them a favorite prey of the jaguar and Yellow Anaconda. This species diet consists primarily of fish (especially piranha) and birds, with the occasional capybara being taken by larger adults. In general, all species of caiman(the exception being the large Black Caiman) are incapable of seriously harming or consuming humans.
