The Wider Image: Cuban scientists race to save one of the world's rarest crocodiles
Veterinary technician Enrique Vasallo releases newborn Cuban crocodiles (Crocodylus rhombifer) into their cage at a hatchery at Zapata Swamp, Cienaga de Zapata, Cuba, August 25, 2022. Cuban crocodiles, an endemic species found only here and in a swamp on Cuba's Isle of Youth, are critically endangered and have the smallest natural habitat left of any living crocodile species, scientists say.
