Examples of "paleosuchus_palpebrosus"
The smallest crocodilian is the Cuvier's dwarf caiman ("Paleosuchus palpebrosus") from northern and central South America. It reaches up to in length.
Cuvier's dwarf caiman was first described by the French zoologist Georges Cuvier in 1807 as "Crocodylus palpebrosus" from a type locality described as "Cayenne". Since then, it has been given a number of names by different authorities: "Crocodilus (Alligator) palpebrosus" (Merrem, 1820), "Jacaretinga moschifer" (Spix, 1825), "Champsa palpebrosa" (Wagler, 1830), "Alligator palpebrosus" (Dumeril and Bibron, 1836), "Champsa gibbiceps" (Natterer, 1841), "Caiman palpebrosus" (Gray, 1844), "Caiman (Aromosuchus) palpebrosus" (Gray, 1862) and "Jacaretinga palpebrosus" (Vaillant, 1898). Muller, in 1924, and Schmidt, in 1928, were the first to use the currently accepted name of "Paleosuchus palpebrosus". No subspecies are recognised.
Cuvier's dwarf caiman ("Paleosuchus palpebrosus") is a small crocodilian from northern and central South America in the alligator family. It is found in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Paraguay, Peru, Surinam and Venezuela. It lives in riverine forests, flooded forests near lakes, and near fast-flowing rivers and streams. It can traverse dry land to reach temporary pools and tolerates colder water than other species of alligator. Other common names for this species include the musky caiman, the dwarf caiman, Cuvier's caiman and the smooth-fronted caiman. It is sometimes kept in captivity as a pet and may be referred to as the wedge head caiman by the pet trade.
They are relatively small sized crocodilians, with an average maximum weight of depending on species, with the exception of the black caiman ("Melanosuchus niger"), which can grow more than in length and weigh up to . The black caiman is the largest caiman species in the world and is found in the slow-moving rivers and lakes that surround the Amazon basin. The smallest species is the Cuvier's dwarf caiman ("Paleosuchus palpebrosus"), which grows to long. There are six different species of caiman found throughout the watery, jungle habitats of Central and Southern America. The average length for most of the other caiman species is about 2 meters to 2.5 meters long.
The genus "Paleosuchus" contains only two members, "Paleosuchus trigonatus", commonly known as the smooth-fronted or Schneider's dwarf caiman, and "Paleosuchus palpebrosus", both from South America. "Paleosuchus" is distinguished from other caimans in the alligator subfamily Caimaninae by the absence of an inter-orbital ridge and the presence of four teeth in the premaxilla region of the jaw where other species of caiman have five. The genus name "Paleosuchus" is derived from the Greek "palaios" meaning "ancient" and "soukhos" meaning "crocodile". This refers to the belief that this crocodile comes from an ancient lineage that diverged from other species of caiman some thirty million years ago. The specific name "palpebrosus" is derived from the Latin "palpebra" meaning "eyelid" and "osus" meaning "full of". This refers to the bony plates (palpebrals) present on the upper eyelids.
The bank is home to 14 species of the 23 crocodilian species living across the world, two of which are listed by the IUCN as critically endangered and three more as threatened. The 14 crocodile species available in the bank are mugger ("Crocodylus palustris"), salt-water crocodile ("Crocodylus porosus"), gharial ("Gavialis gangeticus"), tomistoma ("Tomistoma schlegelii"), American alligator ("Alligator mississippiensis"), Morelet's crocodile ("Crocodylus Moreletii"), spectacled caiman ("Caiman crocodilus"), West African dwarf crocodile ("Osteolaemus tetraspis"), Australian fresh water crocodile ("Crocodylus Johnsoni"), African slender-snouted crocodile ("Mecistops cataphractus"), dwarf caiman ("Paleosuchus palpebrosus"), yacare caiman ("Caiman yacare"), Nile crocodile ("Crocodylus niloticus") and the endangered Siamese crocodile ("Crocodylus siamensis"). The bank currently houses over 2,400 crocodiles and also many species of turtles, snakes, and lizards which are viewable by the public. The bank houses 12 endangered species of turtles and tortoises and 5 species of snakes, including king cobra ("Ophiophagus hannah"), Asian water monitors ("Varanus salvator salvator"), two species of pythons, and albino cobras. Of the 5,000 reptiles bred at the bank, 3,000 represent the native Indian species "Crocodylus palustris", known as muggers. One of the biggest attractions of the park is a fierce salt-water crocodile known as "Jaws III". This species, believed to be the biggest in southern Asia, is long and weighs over a ton. The bank is also going to get four new species of crocodiles. These are black caimans, smooth-fronted caimans, Cuban crocodiles and broad-snouted caimans. Anacondas will also appear at the bank. Since April, 2016 four Komodo dragons - three male, one female - have been added to the list of exhibits. The dragons were acquired from Bronx Zoo in New York.
