Caiman, a four-legged reptile of the alligator family. Caimans closely resemble alligators in appearance, with long, thick, tapering tails and elongated snouts. Caimans are generally somewhat smaller, averaging about four to six feet (1.2 to 1.8m) in length. Their bodies are covered with bony plates and are blackish or brownish with various lighter markings. Females lay 20 to 30 eggs in a mound-shaped nest.
Caimans are native to tropical regions of Central and South America, where they live along rivers, streams, and lakes. Spectacled caimans are also found in southern Florida. Once sold as pets there, many were released into the wild when they became too large to keep. The black caiman, which is the largest caiman and also one of South America's largest animals, grows to a length of 20 feet (6 m). It is endangered because of destruction of its habitat.
Caimans are of the genera Caiman, Melanosuchus, or Paleosuchus of the family Alligatoridae. The spectacled caiman is Caiman crocodilus; the black caiman, Melanosuchus niger.
