::My alligator snappers (6) are anything but mean. Very calm and dolcile, especially if you take them out of the water.
Thanks Steve . That helps. Right now I have 6 of them, but all under 5". I guess 've been thinking about this wrong because right now, they all get along. Its just like keeping a large fish tank really . I've got a nice set-up and they are really pretty low maintenance. They all just seem to "hang out" all the time.
Do you think in the future , I'm going to have to separate everybody? I might have to re-think this , a little if thats true. I was thinking of getting a few more hatchlings next year also, and I'll have to change plans if in the future evyone isn't going to be playing nice.
Any thoughts on this would help. I meet a lot of people that keep the smaller guys, but not many who have much experience with anything larger.
:Hi Mike- most of the smaller ones I've seen will pretty much get along with each other. I have 11" turtle that cant stand another animal being around him. He is also overly agressive when picked up.I guess there or some meaner than others but I've never seen a docile snapper. I think when you first take them out of the water they (freeze) play possum or something,then they come to life! Steve
