by Editor in Chief

YouTube - Dr. Sergio Balaguera-Reina is a conservation biologist who re-discovered the Apaporis caiman after an over 60-year gap in scientific literature. The spectacled caiman subspecies was first described in 1955 by Fred Medem, however, political unrest in Colombia made any further research impossible until 2018. In this episode of Animals at Home Podcast, Sergio tells us about the expedition and current research surrounding the Apaporis caiman, and also discusses the episode of Animal Planet’s Extinct or Alive series that claimed they were first to re-discover the species.
