Staff from the Municipal Ecology Department of Progreso Yucatán, led by Javier Jiménez Couoh, released a crocodile of the Moreletii species, which was captured in the Francisco I. Madero neighborhood of this port last Friday November 28th, after being found “touring the area” right in the middle of the street on Calle 41.
After verifying that the reptile had no injuries and was in good condition, the Municipal Ecology Department Staff proceeded to release the animal to a safe habitat suitable for him.
Residents of Colonia Francisco I. Madero, saw the 2.5 meters (8 feet) long crocodile hanging around Calle 41 (between 72 and 74) on Friday afternoon and immediately called the authorities.
With the help of firefighters and SSP agents, the animal was captured and taken to the offices of the Department of Ecology, for proper care.
Moreletii Crocodile or Mexican crocodile (Crocodylus moreletii) is a species of crocodile that inhabits Guatemala, Belize and all the states along the Gulf of Mexico (Tamaulipas, Veracruz, Tabasco, Campeche, Yucatan and Quintana Roo).
It is named after the French naturalist Pierre Morelet (1809-1892), who scientifically described the species in 1850. This type of reptile can grow up to 3 meters (10 feet) long.
