In Reply to: Re: How Many Adult Snappers in a 3,500-4,000 gallon pond? posted by Lynn_DeVries on January 23, 2003 at 22:42:32:
:I don't Know What maximum is for Loggerheads, but my outdoor Loggerhead pond is 60x20 and I house 3.7 adults in it in the summer. I bring them indoors in the winter and keep them at 50 degrees F. as it is too cold here for too long of time. It's 15 degrees below zero right now and that is not including the wind chill. Common Snappers, I keep 40 adults in a round pond that is 60 feet in diameter, and they live in there year round and seem to do fine. Lynn
i was wondering how much bickering and fighting goes on with your commons. mine always at the very least peck at each other and have little white scratches on themselves if i keep them in the same enclosure. do you encounter this situation with your snappers? i no longer keep snappers(common) together simply because its hard to trust them. especially since one of mine was almost a meal for his own daddy when i adopted him.
