The Caiman latirostris spends much of its time in the water. This is where it finds food – aquatic snails, crabs, and sometimes fish and snakes. But there are times when it is necessary to head for land, especially on the nesting season. A female mounds up a nest and lays between 21 and 38 eggs.

El Yacaré pasa la mayor parte de su tiempo en el agua. Es allí donde encuentra comida – caracoles acuáticos, cangrejos y a veces peces y serpientes. Pero existen épocas donde le es necesario dirigirse a la tierra, especialmente en la temporada de incubación de huevos. Una hembra puede desovar entre 21 y 38 de ellos.
