Cuban Freshwater Crocodile – Crocodylus rhombifer- Extirpated in the Cayman Islands – (Grand Cayman)
No fossil remains found so far on Cayman Brac or Little Cayman. It seems that this crocodile was once common on Grand Cayman. Bones have been found at the Botanic Park and on farmland in Lower Valley. There is speculation that these were the “caimans” for which the islands were named. The species is still found in the remote wetlands in Cuba.
