[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The caymans does not have any tongues. It was something new, that I learnt during my short visit to the Amazon area recently. There is just a pink "ball" with an opening, inside the mouth. I do not know whether it is the same with alligators and crocodiles. Have never had a close look at their mouths.

So you've been visiting the Amazon Monica...
This is interesting to know. And what sharp teeth he has too. Is a Cayman a smaller type of crocodile? I know nothing about them
Good to see you again
Janice

very cool shot. It's scary that the cayman doesn't have his mouth taped. Great details and great action shot.
