Photo and caption by marie-josée auclair

Quiet late afternoon, walking down a trail by a pound in my neighborhood, this creature was slowly following me with one eye. This photograph was taking in the suburb of Rio de Janeiro called Recreio Dos Bandeirantes. My friendly neighbor is a alligator called Jacaré do papo amarelo or Caiman latirostris

Location: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
