:Hello everyone- this is my first time posting on the croc forum.
:I grew up with alligators in Orange Lake florida and it was my best memories of florida. I've started my interest in keeping the crocodilians few years ago. I have several species now, mainly the caimans. I have 1.1 American gator (Alligator mississippiensis), Spectacled Caiman (Caiman crocodilus), Cuvier's dwarf caiman (Paleosuchus palpebrosus) and Scheneider's Dwarf Caiman (Paleosuchus trigonatus). They are mostly 2.8 footers except for the dwarf caimans. The dwarfs are almost a foot.
:Recently I moved into a new house with nice size basement so I turned it into in door enclosures for my animals. I should have some photos ready soon and I will post them whenever I get the chance. My girlfriend and I have discussed earlier about setting up some enclosures to run a small rescue for alligators and crocodilians in our basement. We are located in Columbus Ohio, 1 mile away from the Ohio reptile show place.

:I was wondering if someone here on the forum went to the Crocodile Specialist Group 16th meeting in Gainesville Florida last October? I went to the meeting and had lots of fun and learned a lot from C.S.G. I am going to the next meeting in 2004 for sure. I hope I get to meet some people that I was hoping to meet at the previous meeting.
