Featured Photo – American Crocodile

The American Crocodile or Crocodylus acutus is a large reptile that can be found in and around mangrove swamps and marshes primarily along the south coast of Jamaica as well as in smaller populations in uninhabited areas on some northern parishes like Trelawny. Although often mistakenly referred to an alligator there are no alligators in Jamaica and it is against the law to capture or kill a crocodile in Jamaica.
