    I like to eat them cause they taste good, but the only way you are supposed to take them is by having a research permit here in Florida. But hell, I dont keep every one I catch, they are mostly a PITA when I am catfishing. But I have been known to keep a bass or two thats out of the slot limit, same with trout too...why not a gar

    I had a spectacled caiman at home several years ago, and took care of a group of 6 mississippiensis at the zoo I worked for. I think crocodilians are amazing animals and I'm very happy to be sharing habitat with them, but I HATE to see them in most private collections.

    Would definitely agree with you Gladriel most people are ill-equiped to house them sufficiently for the duration of their lifes most people buy them when they are small and cute while failing to realize just how much care,space and not to mention the financial resources needed to keep them.....if only i won the lotto..........
