|Type of animal:||Caiman|
|Length:||2.5 m/8 ft 2 in|
|What it looks like:||A crocodile with glasses|
|Location:||Cortica River, Midstream (EO2)|
"Its name comes from the ridges between its eyes that makes it look as if it's wearing glasses.
It lays several dozen eggs at a time in a single nest, and the mother stays nearby to look after the hatched young."
Hatchlings give out a high-pitched cry as soon as they break out of their eggs. When the mother hears them, she runs to the nest and digs to help them get out. If the hatchlings cry out when threatened by a predator, their mother will come to their defence immediately and fight ferociously.
Not only will other spectacled caiman nearby react in the same way, but even different species have been known to help protect the young.

They slowly swim around but some are dangerous. The ones on land lay down and respond to petting and feeding.
- These swim around the two islands in the middle of the stream and also appear on one of the two islands you can surface (the Westernmost one. Giant Otters are on the Easternmost one).
- Those with young (in water) are dangerous, but the ones alone are not.
- They can be found day and night
