The marsh alligator (caiman yacare) also stands out among the typical species of the biome. With a strong jaw, serrated tail and powerful clawed feet, the species averages three meters in length.
The reptile feeds mainly on fish and other aquatic vertebrates, as well as invertebrates such as snails and insects, especially when they are young.
The species also controls the population of insects and gastropods (snails) that transmit diseases, such as schistosomiasis (water belly). The feces serve as food for fish and other aquatic living beings.
