They can, on occasion, inhabit brackish waters and leave the water to warm in the sun on shores. In Puerto Rico, caimans have established in rural, suburban, and urban settings. In Manaus city, Central Amazonia, it is common and nesting along small urban polluted streams R. Da Silveira, pers.

They are highly adaptable to new environments and readily colonize newly formed waters. General impacts Caiman crocodilus is a generalist and opportunistic predator, but due their relative small size and lack of aggressive behaviour they do not in general represent a danger for humans, pets and farm animals. Uses Caiman crocodilus is a valuable species in the hide and pet trade industry. Their skins are the most popularly harvested product among crocodiles with over half a million traded legally each year.

Since they were considered commercially inferior compared to non-ossified alligator and crocodile skins in the early s, common caimans weren't hunted until the s when other crocodilian populations diminished. For this reason, caimans have since remained resilient to overhunting because of harvest regulations and due to the fact that they reproduce at a relatively small size. Most countries within its native range set harvest regulations with licensing and inspection programs. Grana, pers. Poaching for meat, and eventually for skins, is widespread throughout the Brazilian Amazonia since s Da Silveira et al.

Notes Four or five subspecies of C. Some authorities believe that C. All subspecies of C. The program includes a strict licensing and a centralized inspection agency, but independent surveys have indicated overexploitation in some areas. Such sustainable programs require substantial survey, study, and continued monitoring. In Puerto Rico, reported caimans are captured by government officials and taken to a retention center from which they are either exported or killed Ross, ; Felix Grana, pers.
Nutrition Caiman crocodilus are generalist and opportunistic, feeding upon a great variety of invertebrates and vertebrates. Juveniles consume mostly aquatic invertebrates such as insects, spiders, crustaceans and molluscs. In urban habitats of the Manaus city, the diet of the species is composed mainly of Rattus sp.
