Growing up in the wild.
Yes and no. Obviously the great outdoors is... great. Vast areas of open water typically is'nt where you would find hatchlings or juveniles. They will be hiding in a canal or inlet or the mangroves or thick tall reeds or cattails. Their world will actually be rather small. ADDITIONALLY, hopefully they have a big mean mom protecting them. And several other offspring hanging out also. they are going to hide and hunt in a small area.
BTW less than 1% of wild crocodilians ever reach adulthood.
So even without a world full of predators I probably would'nt pattern my husbandry off the wild. I think all of us want our animals to be healthier than wild animals. D.C.
