The American crocodile (Crocodylus acutus) raised in captivity for their further insertion into wild environmentally suitable areas and their relocation to others for boosting its repopulation are goals of those who work in a reptile farm, located in the municipality of Minas, northern Camagüey.

The workers of this farm owned by the Protection and Preservation of the Flora and Fauna Company have been involved in several projects for achieving their objectives, through handling the environment in a sustainable way and educating the people so that they can appreciate more, take care and advantage of the species now in danger.

Since 2004 this farm has been raising the acutus, perhaps one of the largest species of crocodiles. Today 700 individuals are ranched there, of which 150 are adults and the rest are for replacement, development or raising.
