::maybe this is just me but as far as substrate goes i have a piece of slate held up by a few bricks in water...he has the slate to get out of the water and bask on and the rest of his tank is for swimming...although this is just for my baby gator...hes like 14" long...he seems to like it though...
:Im not talking about baby gators being in a tank! im talking about big enclosures like 10 feet X 12 feet and 8 feet X 10 feet. :) There are big difference :) I am way past on keeping it in "Tank" phase because it is smaller for my gator or croc.
He was trying to help. The one thing you should have notice by now on this forum is there is a wide range of expertise. Experience can be defined in so many ways: longevity of working with a particular species in a captive situation vs. caring as a team for a more diverse collection. Experiences with wild crocodilians ...it's endless. When you speak of large 10x12 I think of large ponds with a 1/2 acre of land. Other people think of several acres enclosed with a creek flowing through. As always size is relative. When an answer is giving in generous spirit(trying to be helpful) take it as such. Noone, and I mean noone here Knows everything. And the most inexperienced keeper here might know something you or I don't.
I have no trouble with opinions I certainly have mine but treat everyone with a degree of dignity.
For all we know Rom Whitaker, Tony Pooley, Ted Joanen or even Ken Ernst might be reading this forum and they could embarass any of us. D.C.
