Meet the crocs heading to Cuba...

Ten baby Cuban crocodiles are heading from Sweden to Cuba to help save the endangered reptile.

For over 30 years Cuban crocs have been bred in a zoo in Sweden, Europe.

But now some of the young reptiles are ready for life in the wild and have started their long journey to Cuba in the Caribbean.

This species of croc is today only found in the wild in two swamps in Cuba.

You can tell if a croc is one of the species because they have a bony ridge behind the eyes.

It's thought there are around 100 purebred Cuban crocs there today.
