:im new to alligator and would like to own one in the near future. i'll like to find out more about alligaotr first befor i purchase one.
:therefore, i hope to know what kind of alligator is suitable for a indoor caging and is suitable for a beginner. Is there any?
:And i also like to know if there is any alligator that does NOT grow at a very fast pace and i hope for an alligator that does not take up alot of space.
:Any species is suitable for a beginner and easy to care for ?

Well, sadly to say there are no crocodilian species that are easy to care for..All require large caging and continual cleaning to keep them healthy..The growth rate of an Alligator in the wild is about a foot a year and in captivity, They grow MUCH faster if fed regularly...There are no beginner crocs out there..Zero..Even for experinced keepers these animals can be a handful to deal with.
