The broad-snouted caiman is so-named for its handy nose, which helps the creature make its way through dense vegetation. Though it's hard to imagine looking at these squirmy hatchlings, an adult can grow up to 8 feet in length. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is currently monitoring the entire population of this endangered species, which is native to Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay.
