Picture of the day: Caiman at the riverbank

When I went into the Tambopata in Madre de Dios as part of the Peruvian Amazonas last year, we got a look at this caiman.  Caiman is the smallest part of the crocodile family.  and it was just enjoying the sun. (I think they are nocturnal, so I guess it was just preserving energy for hunt)
