If they were of simular size you would probably get away with it, but you would not be a dealer that i would purchase from.

Parasite transmission, disease transmission, stress (especially on any wc and the dwarfs) ...... would be a mess.

If you cant take the time and space to set each species up in an enviorment that will be comfortable for it, then dont get in any to sell..... i keep envisioning this poor little dwarf caiman stressing and not eating due to a more adjusted gator or spec caiman that is being a bit "moody"

Matt

::what would happen if i mixed a couple gators with a dwarf caimen and a spec caimen....or somthin like that..or even just 2 types of caimen

::only while they were babies.....waiting to be sold

:sorry for the mistakes in the first one
