Cuban Crocodile

Population decreases of more than 80 percent over the last three generations have led to the Cuban crocodile being moved from "endangered" to "critically endangered" on the 2008 Red List.

Hunting, hybridization with other croc species, and diminished habitat quality have contributed to the decline of the small, freshwater crocodile, which is found only in Cuba.
