Caimans

In the swamps of Suriname you can now go on caiman tour. Caimans are everywhere in Suriname. Along the coastal plain of Suriname is the Mata pica swamp, on the coast of Commewijne. The Spectacled Caiman (Caiman crocodilus) comes in this area, they are named so  because there is a fleshy mound above the eyes. It looks like the Cayman has a glasses on.
The caimans mainly come forth in the evening but one can also see them during the day. If you shine a lights in the eyes of the caimans a red color of the eyes is reflected. This will also make them temporarily blind, it is then possible to get closer and to address them. The guide captures a small Caiman and you can take photo. After the photo is the Cayman is released.
