A woman named Martha Echeverry sustained serious injuries to her lower right thigh when she was attacked by a crocodilian while fishing in Caño Jujú at San Luis de los Palmares in Arauquita at around 5:00 PM. Given the location and information from local crocodilian experts, it would appear that the spectacled caiman (Caiman crocodilus) is the most likely culprit, although the crocodilian responsible has been stated in one article as being "caiman llanero" which would refer for to the Orinoco crocodile (Crocodylus intermedius). While the Orinoco crocodile is present in Arauca and is much larger than the spectacled caiman, it is not believed to be present in this immediate area, but this has not been confirmed.
