The Chinese Alligator

This little guy is a Chinese alligator. It is so rare that there are only 130 left in the wild. Known as the Yangtze alligator, it is also one of the smallest crocodilians in the world. They stay in subtropical areas with freshwater sources like lakes, ponds, marshes and streams. Sadly these habitats are disappearing, often to make room for agriculture. This and poaching are the biggest threats to the survival of the species.
