A small caiman, or the Caiman Crocodilus, waits underwater in a river in Hato Pinero, 370 km (229 miles) west of Caracas, May 3, 2005. Venezuela's best-known eco-tourism reserve and cattle ranch is fighting for its survival against Venezuelan government land reform. The Hato Pinero, a private 200,000-acre (80,000 hectare) property was declared as being public land and subject to confiscation after President Hugo Chavez's government made it a target for takeover to redistribute rural land to the poor.
