brazil’s yacare caiman was once hunted to near extinction for its valuable skin, but thanks to a global ban on the trade, its home in the pantanal — the world’s largest wetland, situated along along the paraguay river — now supports the world’s largest population of crocodiles. the caiman, however, face new threats: deforestation, dams, tourism, mining and seaport development.

photos by luciano candisani, who notes that the caiman are neither aggressive nor fearful but, for the most part, approachable - especially when busy with the shoal fish seen here in the pantanal’s shallow, murky waters.
