In Belize you don’t need to go hunting for wildlife – sooner or later it will come to you. Case in point is earlier this month, May 23 to be exact, when we had both a crocodile and jaguar go roaming – all in one day. In Belize City, a crocodile was causing mischief when it left a storm drain to visit the neighborhood. The same day, a jaguar decided to take a walk – much to the concern of the authorities.
Many scientists believe that Belize is one of the few places in the Western hemisphere that still has a healthy population of the American Crocodilians, commonly referred to as the American saltwater crocodile. That is now a matter of debate since it is believed that the American crocodile population is not at strong and healthy as believed.
