On the 23rd day of Crocmas, the CRC brings to thee, West African Dwarf Crocodile (Osteolaemus sp. nov. cf. tetraspis). Still in the process of being recognized as a unique species, the West African Dwarf Crocodile is the most threatened of these small, forest-dependent crocodilians.  In some places in West Africa it is protected by cultural beliefs about sacred rivers and groves, where nothing the water provides is to be sacrificed. In these places, dwarf crocodiles can even be seen wandering cashew nut groves in search of millipedes and other terrestrial prey!

Project Mecistops is a gang of wildlife and conservation enthusiasts from all walks of life – biologists and conservation scientists, zoo personnel and animal keepers, even everyday people - working to overcome the challenges of biodiversity conservation in West and Central Africa to save crocodiles in this region, and other threatened species like pangolins, from certain extinction.

En el 23 Día de Crocmas, el CRC te trae, Cocodrilo Enano Africano del Oeste (Osteolaemus sp. nov. cf. tetraspis). Todavia en el proceso de ser reconocido como una especies única, Cocodrilo Enano Africano del Oeste es el más amenazado de estos pequeños cocodrilos dependientes de los bosques. En unos lugares en África Occidental el cocodrilo está protegido por creencias culturas sobre ríos and canales sagrados, donde nada que está asociado con el agua puede sacrificar. En estos lugares, cocodrilos enanos pueden ver caminando arboledas del anacardo buscan milpiés y otra presa terrestrial.

On the 9th Day of Crocmas, the CRC brings to thee the African dwarf crocodile (Osteolaemus tetraspis). One of three dwarf crocodile species in Africa, this diminutive crocodilian reaches a maximum of only 1.8 m (or about 5.5 feet). It relies very heavily on daytime burrows and cryptic coloration to avoid predation by big pythons and even people!
