Nesting and eggs
Like other oviparous animals, egg clutch size and egg size increase as the size of the female increases. In general, the clutch size is between 25-35 eggs, and the peak level of egg laying is during the middle of wet season. The caimans build mounds for nests, which are located in forest within a few meters of the water. The nests are generally found at the base of trees, and built up using twigs, dirt, leaves and any other small things the mother found. Mothers guard their nests occasionally, the defense varies based on surrounding activity. In general, the eggs hatch in late March to early April after approximately 70 days of incubation.
