New caiman pool at La Aurora Zoo

Indigo Expeditions met with Carlos Cozano, head of reptiles, to see the new caiman pool at La Aurora Zoo Guatemala, and the new reptile house.

We have been collaborating with the Zoo since 2014, to support conservation, and best practise for animal husbandry.

Carlos is really dedicated to creating these environments and habitats for the reptiles at the Zoo.
