Can you guess this animal by its eye?

Which animal is this?

A. Crocodile monitor lizard
B. Caiman
C. Cane toad
D. Komodo dragon

The answer is.....

Caiman. Specifically, a spectacled caiman. This species is found throughout Central America and South America. The name actually comes from a bony ridge between the eyes, which makes it look a little bit like it is wearing crocodile skin spectacle frames.
