The most important Orinoco crocodile population known is found in the Cojedes River System (CRS), Venezuela, an area currently under heavy anthropogenic pressure. Based on spotlight surveys, a minimum population of 547 non-hatchling crocodiles was estimated for the CRS. Middle sections of the CRS, particularly near the downstream-end of CanÄ o de Agua, showed the highest population indices (PI)(7.3 ind/km… CONTINUE READING
