if your talking just alligators there are only two types in the world american alligator and chinese alligator and only the american is redilly available. If talking all crocodillians the smallest would be the cuvier dwarf caiman maxing out at around 5 feet.

no, no tank they can stay for life. I currently keep a spectacled caiman who is 4 feet and 1.1 hopeful pair dwarf caimans only babies yet. I am building enclosures up my new house will be 10 x 12 feet with 8x6 pond and may have to build bigger for the spec. The thing about the dwarfs is unlike other crocodilians they spend more time on land. Crocodilian should only be taken on by serious herp keepers cause they are lots of money to keep and live for a very long time. Not saying your not I dont know your herp experience. Just so many people go buy a baby alligator croc or caiman and is not longer a baby and they dont know what to do with it.
