 What is the Best kind of Caiman!

Hello, My name is Justin and I am looking into getting a Dwarf Caiman. My question to anyone that can answer this is What do you consider the better type of Dwarf caiman. I am thinking more about a Paleosuchus palpebrosus (Cuvier’s). so if anyone can give me any ideas or tips that would be great.

I have a Cuvier’s Dwarf and just adore him. He is great. He eats up a storm and I have never had any issues with getting him to eat. This is my first caiman so I am no expert but I have found with most things if you do your researh and ask the people who have been successful then more often then not you will do well. The Cuvier is the smallest but they can have a nice little temper on them. If you work with them though not so bad. I get mine out several times a week and handle him and I have yet to have any major bites but he is only 18". If you have any other questions please ask. Like I said no expert but can let you know what has worked for me. Good luck if you decide to get one.
