Births:

Special Projects:

In June 2003, a letter was sent to all institutions that hold or have held Cuban crocodiles to request complete medical records including clinical notes, pathology reports, anesthesia records, clinical pathology, etc.  Data will be reviewed and collated for development of a medical management chapter within the husbandry manual.  The development and dissemination of a husbandry manual is a high priority of the SSP and is currently under construction.  In the future, institutions should forward complete pathology records from Cuban crocodiles to the veterinary advisors as deaths occur in collections.
