Say hello to CHOPPER

Description: This is my DWARF CAIMEN. I got it around 3 weeks ago and I named him CHOPPER. I'm guessing he's around 4-6 months old, that's what they told me. He eats really good. Eats 2 fuzzy mice on Fridays & 2 Goldfish on Tuesdays. Yesterday I fed him 3 small fuzzys and he gulped them up FAST. I built him a cool setup with running water that he just loves to lay under. I will submit a photo real soon.

If at first you dont suceed then Sky diving is not for you.

You're enclosure is awesome, man. I love the square tank. However, I noticed you had everything except UV lighting.. Why is this? Rating: 5/5

When I'm in the room with "CHOPPER" late at night while I'm on my computer, I hear him make this noise. The noise he makes kinda sounds like a grunt/bellow or something like that. I wish I could spell it or something. Let's see, if I can spell it... it sounds likr "UMMP". If you know what I'm saying and you know what this means, please inform me. I'm very surious to know what this sound means when "CHOPPER" does it.

Thank you.

It could be any reason. I would guess being that you are in the room it may be either a stress or a threat call.
Threat calls usually involve a good amount of hissing and coughing. I would put something over the cage when you are in the room. If he is still "barking" I wouldn't worry to much. They often do it, especially hatchlings and juveniles. Possibly just looking for mom.

Under normal conditions it will take up to about 7-8yrs for dwarfs to get around 3' which is about sexual maturity.

Hello. I am the owner of Chopper. I had to house chopper in a different cage set up for a few weeks and now Chopper has a little GREEN ALGAE growth on his skin. How do I get it off? What's the deal with it? Any info will help.

Thank you.

Always loved dinosaurs so owning reptiles is the next best thing, i currently own 4.5 gator, 1.5 c.d.caiman, diamond back terrapin, i've owned many reptiles over the last 10 years mainly snakes, but enjoy gators more.

Does he move around alot? Is his basking light over land or water? You should be able to hold him and wipe the algae off, depending on where the light source is you may want to move it.
