    @aja YES! I share that sentiment completely. That would be awesome if there were triple dwarf versions available lol.

    Well "they say 4' - 6', in the wild I've heard they can get over 8'. So prepare for the worst right? im a journeyman Carpenter (licensed if u will) So i plan on building a very large enclose in the basement probably 10'x10' - 15'x15' with a 400+ gallon pond i also plan on a go big or go home filter system for the pond, the whole front will be plexy / Glass i want to be able to have the pond like a very large fish tank very visible enclosure will be done with in the next 5 years once he reaches 2 feet i will modify the 180 gallon tank to be his pond and build a land space above it im still debating my plans

    his tank now has 2 uvb 10 cfl's a 75 watt heat lamp and a 150 both are very dialed down water temp is about 87 now but i like to slowly bring it up and down within 85 - 90 land Varese from 75 - 90 i breed mice to feed him regularly 3 females one male he eats pinky's to small hoppers now

    What species is this?

    Can you earn a caiman's trust like you can with monitors?
