There are spectacled caimans, Caiman crocodylus in relativity common.

You're right Rubén, they were common in Manu river at the time we were there. Funny enough, a German couple travelling with us said they absolutely wanted to swim in the river. Well, after we saw about thirty or forty of these fellows, they suddenly lost their will for swimming...

Very good shot! These are the black caimans no? For anybody, take the time for doing this trip! It's worth it!

Thanks jdegoffau for the compliment and your visit! These were either black or white caimans, I don't know if they are the same species as Mr. Pittman pointed out in his comment - spectacled caiman.
