The Northern Caiman Lizard is a species of lizard found in northeastern South America. The caiman lizard is large and powerfully built. It can grow up to 4 ft. long and is one of the larger American lizards. Its body is covered in rough, horny scales and its tail is flattened and helps it swim. The northern caiman lizard spends most of its time in or near water. At night, it hides in trees and bushes. It feeds almost entirely on snails. It takes the snail in the jaws, raises its head up so that the prey will slide into the back of the mouth, then crushes it with its back teeth. It then spits out the pieces of shell. This species can be found in the countries of Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Guyana. It lives in swampy habitats and other wooded areas which are usually flooded. It is very aquatic.
