yea i thought about it alot last night.
i am still gettting 2 commons.and if he finds an ally thats about 10 less or more,i might get it to.
im just worried about the commons and the reach they have,lol
i know how to hold but still worried,lol.i called the guy about the northerns im getting,im not getting cause the farmer he went through isnt reliable,so im getting 2 commons,but there already sold,so i will have enuff for shipping for the adult commons.
do any of you know how much shipping would be for about 50 pounds?from louisiana to tx.
thanks acomplice

:Jess,

:I'd give a lot of thought before getting a larger alligator snapper (remember that the little ones become big ones after a while also). I'd owned a few common and alligator snappers over the years before getting my 60 lb. alligator snapper. He is NOT a turtle for novice keepers. They require a lot of space (at least 300 gallons), a lot of food (several rats/ chickens per week), and can be scary to have to deal with (can take off fingers/ hands/ flesh/ etc.). I'd stick with commons for a few years before jumping into a large alligator snapper.
