Description

The local naturalist said that this crocodile (out of range) has been at the Marina area for a month. He identified it as a Cuban Crocodile. It is a very unusual location. My photo is not definitive.

The very first sighting on my very first game drive. To make up for the screen capture, it gave me the real deal! Sorry we couldn't see the head. Except . . . I'll post another view.

Description from Wikipedia

Crocodylidae is a family of crocodylians that includes the true crocodiles which are the members of the subfamily Crocodylinae and the Tomistoma. Currently, the family includes two subfamilies; Crocodylinae and Tomistominae, with the latter being a subject of controversy whether it is a crocodile or belonging to the family, Gavialidae. Further genetic analysis has to be done to come to a final conclusion.
