Abstract: The diet of Caiman crocodilus yacare was investigated during the dry season in different habitats of the Pantanal, Brazil. Stomach contents of 196 animals were analysed by prey class, the total number of prey, and the number of caimans eating each prey type. C. c. yacare ate mostly insects and fish. The caimans' diets differed significantly among habitats but not among caiman size classes.
