Are you joking around with us?? if not, I dont mean to sound mean or anything and im glad you have a interest in crocodilians but maybe you should consider donating this animal to one of the more experianced members of this forum.

Crocodilians require specialized care and there housing and feeding can and will get expensive! if this crocodile makes it to a larger size are you going to be able to take care of it?, really? ...

In a few months your going to need a larger enclosure, then not long after that your going to need a larger enclosure, then another even larger enclosure, then your will need its adult enclosure which will need to be quit large ... say at a mininum for a adult dwarf caiman 8ft x 4ft and that would be cutting it REALLY small

Lets not forget in a couple months when it bites you and it will its going to start hurting and breaking the skin nicely ... then not long after that if and when it bites there will be stitches involved, then after that possible finger loss.

Again, not trying to be mean im just giving you a small taste of what you have to look forward to ... if you keep the caiman and stick with crocs great, just as long as you are doing it right, not taking advise from morons and not letting anyone cause harm to the animals in your care.
