 Short nose caiman

Paleosuchus palpebrosus and Paleosuchus trigonatus are the two dwarf caimans that i know of. Maybe its a Broad snout caiman, Caiman latirostris, the broad nose kind of makes it look short in the pictures i have seen of it. This site has some information on all three of the above speices. http://www.flmnh.ufl.edu/cnhc/csl.html
Hope this helps you some.
