phylum Chordata The black caiman is a large crocodilian and the biggest extant member of the family Alligatoridae. It is a carnivorous reptile that lives along slow-moving rivers, lakes, seasonally flooded savannas of the Amazon basin, and in other freshwater habitats of South America. It is a quite large species, growing to sizes of at least 5 m (16 ft) and possibly up to 6 m (20 ft) in length. As their name implies, the black caiman has a dark coloration, as an adult. In some individuals the dark coloration can appear almost black. However they have gray to brown banding on the lower jaw.
