Aus dem Inhalt:

The dwarf caiman holds little potential for the development of  commercially-oriented  management  programs. The primary value in most countries is for subsistence hunting by rural inhabitants, and Paleosuchus spp. are sometimes taken preferentially over Caiman spp. Commercial exploitation in Guyana is based on the capture and sale of dwarf caiman for the pet industry.
