    Caiman lizards are cool i admit if i had some where to buy snails i would probably have one by now,they only eat snails i believe (well thats what i been reading on care sheets for them).

    Over the last few years they have been doing alot better, there was some bad experiance from people on Fauna with them but i try to get outside opinions as well. Always willing to answer questions.

    As for caiman lizards alot of the farm bred and captive bred guys also get rodents, groun trukey, cat food, inscets, fish, crafish, clams but they are speicalist and love snails. Two good sorces of snails are asian markets abou $4 for a 5 lb bag at my local store. Also zoo med makes canned snails now and Petsmart has them listed for as low as $2 a can. From other owners i've heard a can can last a week so that is not too bad. I've been looking into getting one but have to wait till im in one area longer than 6 months. Think my mom gets tired of looking after the tegus from time to time do not want to streatch the bounderies there on my free reptile sitter.

    Caimen Lizards

    Ben Siegel sold a Caimen Lizard for $270 on his FaceBook auction page.
    So check him out.
    He said he has loads of them. I think if you wanted one you could probably just email him with a similiar offer.

    Oh, never mind just checked their channel and they said they hatched on there own and they "assisted" others.

    Here's the link to their channel

    same here... I dont agree at all. What if the kids make a mistake and cut to deep! Plus they were ment to hatch out themselves... they're kinda forcing them out. They cut the egg and try not to pop the membrane and mention that its "pretty cool to see them without the shell on but the membrane intact". I know Bobby tickles some of his late hatching eggs but at least all he does is tickle them with tweezers and lets them pop out, not a cut them out with a blade.

    I think people cut eggs for one of two reasons,to speed things up or to keep them from drowning,a lot of hatchlings were lost that way,thats why a lot of snake breeders cut eggs.

    My Tegu came from them, and he's great. I've posted a few videos, pics, etc. The packaging was good, delivery fast, etc.

    it means "from Paraguay"... Paraguay is a small landlocked country that is pinched between Argentina and Brazil.
