The aim of the study was to determine the values of hematologic and serum biochemistry in free-living spectacled caiman (Caiman crocodilus) in Madre de Dios, Peru. A total of 30 individuals (26 males and 4 females) were captured in the banks of the vein. The following results were found: RBC 1.45+0.97 x 106/μl, PCV 22.63+4.16%, Hb 7.86+2.10 g/dl, MCV 190.6+76.9 fl, MCH 63.49+20.96 pg, MCHC 34.96+7.80 g/dl, WBC 13.18+5.85 x 103/μl, eosinophils 1.54+1.21 x 103/μl, basophils 1.31+1.20 x 103/μl, lymphocytes 5.77+4.03 x 103/μl, monocytes 0.17+0.38 x 103/μl, heterophiles 2.16+2.59 x 103/μl, ALT 48.59+14.34 U/L, AST 114.0+28.5 UI/L, GGT 1.8+1.6 UI/L, creatinine 0.51+0.35 UI/L, cholesterol 101.8+42.3 UI/L, glucose 98.1+30.7 mg/dL total protein 5.01+1.00 g/dl, albumin 1.65+0.29 g/dL, globulins 3.13+1.08 g/dL, calcium 10.11+1.63 mg/dL, phosphorus 6.44+1.09 mg/ml. Significant differences were found by sex for MVC and MCHC.
