Featured Wild Game Item Of The Week

Caiman Bolivian Crocodile

Crocodiles inspire fear, which may have something to do with their coolly dominating presence. After all, for nearly 100 million years during the Mesozoic era (248-65 million years ago), the crocodilian order ruled the Earth. Today's crocodiles have changed remarkably little since then. They are still the most advanced reptile species, and they still terrify most people.

In 1999 Bolivia conducted a study on the sustainable use of the Bolivia Crocodile. The Caiman crocodilus yacare is the most widely distributed crocodile species. The Bolivian National Ministry of Sustainable Development and Environment have set annual wild catch limits and have encouraged the full use of the animals. Bolivian Leathers & Food began their Wild Meat division in 2004, incorporating caiman meat cuts for export complying with high quality standards and Food Safety Assurance Systems including HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points.)

Due to its wild origin, caiman meat is completely natural and organic without contaminants from origin or additives from processing. It is a white meat and its nutritional composition compares favorably with that of more traditional meats.

It has a delicate flavor, is low in fat and high in protein.
