i’m curious as to why people like dwarf caimans. what are some cool things about them besides their obvious small size. are they significantly cheaper to care for?

 Why a dwarf caiman

The main reason is their small size. Obviously it is cheaper to feed and care for then a 10 ft alligator but still is not cheap. They are also more expensive then alligators more shy and usually more aggressive. So bottom line main reason is the size. Something people forget is there are two type of dwarf caimans: wedge head (true dwarf) gets only 4-5 and smooth front which cand get 6-7 ft more on the 6 side from what i have seen.
