Profile of a cuban crocodile. The Cuban crocodile has the smallest range of any crocodile. It can be found only in Cuba in the Zapata Swamp in the northwest and in the Lanier Swamp on Isla de Juventud. The historical range also included the Cayman and Bahama islands. Cuban crocodiles prefer freshwater marshes or swamps similar to those of the Everglades. They rarely swim in saltwater. The Cuban crocodile is endangered and listed on CITES Appendix I. It is one of the most threatened New World crocodilian species, primarily because it has such a small and restricted distribution. The Cuban crocodile?s main threat is humans, who have hunted the crocodile extensively and have largely encroached upon their habitats. Today, 3,000 to 6,000 Cuban crocodiles are estimated to live in the wild
