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.

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.

Place the light over some type of land, many available ideas...stacked slate, large rock, branch, hollow log, what you have him on in this photo would be fine. When he is basking in the water he will stay still which is allowing the algae to grow on him. same thing happens to none basking turtles like snappers, muds and musks. Since they are in the shallows getting sunlight directed on their shells they also grow algae. Just move the light source over dry land and he will be okay.

How is chopper doing? I looked at some of your other pics you might also want to give him more land to get out on I'd say something 1-2 inches longer them him and 4-5 inches wider.
