Sorry for the crack about "hand bags", I was just kidding. Its a crazy world where people have to accesorize (sp?) themselves with animals.
Im curious, how well does the ali'snap competes with the gators and the other turtles when it comes to chow time? Aren't the others a bit more aggressive eaters then it is? If so, how does it get its fare share of the food?
Also you mentioned "when they see they see one another . . . they are ready to do battle". Do you mean that the common and the ali'snap are housed together? If so, if ever they do "battle" what happens and what is the outcome (they seem to be about the same size)?
