Crocodile American history

The American Crocodile is native to the central region of the Americas, ranging through Central America up into southern areas of North America and down into more temperate regions of South America. They are most commonly found in tropical wetland areas. Although once endangered, the IUCN status of the American Crocodile has been revised, and this reptile is now listed as a vulnerable species. In certain areas of its range, however, it remains endangered. It was heavily hunted in the mid twentieth century for its skin, and today is often forced out of areas it previously inhabited due to human disturbance, poaching, and habitat loss. The American Crocodile is farmed and conservation programs are underway.
