What’s your weirdest caiman-related story?
CaimanHunter would like to know.
Send us your stories, videos
& pictures; and let us know
how we can help.
CaimanHunter has been rescuing caiman since 2002. With over
25 years of combined reptile experience, CaimanHunter has become the
logical choice for people from around the country to find caring and
knowledgeable herpetologists, for the giving and receiving of rescued
caiman and the humane removal of problem caiman.
We do not charge for our service.
Our purpose includes educating the public to the importance of caiman
as a keystone species, the role of caiman in an eco-system, creating
an ecologically friendly home for all of our rescues, and to create
an atmosphere conducive to educating K-12's and college 'herp' students.
Rescues have been received, or removals have been effected, from the
Texas Parks & Wildlife Department, Anne Arundel Maryland Police
Department, Williamson County Animal Control, Bayou Beasts and many
other reputable and respectable organizations.
If there should ever be a time when you need to remove a problem caiman,
we would be happy to provide that service. And we would be happy to
take possession of any caiman that you need to house or re-home; ensuring
that it is treated correctly, kept in a way that is optimum for its
continued well-being and does not become a non-native species introduced
to any local environments.
Caiman are considered the third nastiest crocodilian species, behind
the Nile Crocodile and the Saltwater Crocodile – and that’s
probably due to it being 3 to 12 feet or more shorter than its meaner
cousins. With that in mind, we know that you'd rather have us take care
of that problem than ask your neighbor or roommate.
The majority of our rescues are nursed back to health and are re-homed.
Those that we decided to keep, for various reasons, are now housed at
a local aquarium.
Along with rescuing, re-homing and removing caiman, for a very limited
time we did a little captive breeding. This is a very rare occurrence
and is not available at this time. To keep abreast of what we
have or when we have something, please check out this
page on a regular basis.
CaimanHunter has been able to raise spectacled caiman in an eco-system
that closely resembles an environment that they would be found in naturally.
Water temperature, diet, land-to-water ratio and all other optimum conditions
are strictly adhered to.
For more information on rescues, donating,
contacting us for any reason, acquiring
or learning more about your caiman, the
links and pages on this site should be able to answer most of your questions.
