In Reply to: So who here has alligator snappers? What size, sex, etc. posted by Accomplice on October 25, 2002 at 09:38:34:

3.4 adults 35-75 pounds
3- 6 to 7 inch juvi's
22 babies from this year
They are all housed indoors in the winter and most of the adults will go outdoors in the spring, in to the Loggerhead pond. The babies and juvinals are warm and feeding through the winter but the adults are in the hibranation building for the winter. The temp in there is 40-50F from October through April, then in May they will go outdoors. The adults eat chicken and fish(in the summer,nothing in the winter)the small ones eat Zoo Med Aquatic Turtle Diet. from:Who's got alligator snappers? What size, weight, sex, ages, color, enclosures?

:I'll start:
:(as of next Tuesday)
:1 male
:19 inch straight line shell length
:weight estimate 60-70 lbs. (could be a bit less)
:age: 20-30 years old?
:winter enclosure: outdoor 4 X 4' wood framed pond 2 feet deep (150 gallons?)
:spring-summer enclosure: likely to be an outdoor 300 gallon Rubbermaid stock tank
:turtle color: rust (possible redish tint)
:misc: plan to stock ponds with 4-5 inch fingerlings (bass, stripers, etc.), searching for the perfect hollow log/ tangled stump for a submerged hiding spot.
