There has always been a bit of confusion over the method of reproduction of Cuban crocodiles. In nearly every crocodilian species, nests are either excavated into the ground, or a mound is constructed from vegetation and other materials. Cuban crocodiles in captivity and in the wild have been observed building mound nests, but there has been a report of Cuban crocodiles in the wild digging a hole nest and laying eggs there.
