Baby American crocodiles make first appearance at zoo in Lima Updated: 2021-05-18 09:58:43 KST

Baby crocodiles made an appearance, at a Peruvian zoo, exploring all corners of their enclosure.
Zookeepers at the zoo in the capital city Lima were excited as two endangered baby American crocodiles were presented to the public for the first time.

''These animals are currently in danger of extinction. Their population in the wild has been reduced due to the pollution of their natural habitat."

The pair of baby crocs were born at the zoo in February via artificial insemination.
After the crocodile eggs were incubated for 90 days, only two out of a total of 24 eggs survived.
This species can be found in the southern U.S., Mexico and Venezuela, but is critically endangered in Peru and Ecuador.
