Panama

Despite their small size and little renown outside of Panama, the mangrove-fringed islands of the Bocas Del Toro archipelago are home to some of the most extensive rainforest in Central America. Whilst working on a TV production on one of its larger islands Isla Bastimentos, I spent my free time tracking down its colourful animal inhabitants. 

One of my favourite finds was a pair of Caiman who lived behind the production office and with whom I became very well acquainted over the course of my stay. Most mornings before breakfast I would try to get a few minutes with them, and one morning I was rewarded with the unforgettable sight of 7 hatchlings taking their first swim. I have decided to share these Caiman photos in a gallery below, separate from my other wildlife photos.
