Iron Crocodile by Gray-Ghost-Creations Iron Crocodile by Gray-Ghost-Creations
IronCrocodile! Fear him!

Happy early Halloween. I know its early but i was way too excited and needed to post this now! Me and my boyfriend made this outfit. (well my boyfriend made it and i helped XD)

This is my dwarf caimen Hadies. He is my pet and i love him very much. For those who dont know ive worked with large reptiles many years, from 20 foot snakes to 5 foot lizards.

ALSO this costume just sits on top of him, if he was to move or walk it would fall off. It was designed to not restrict him and not stress him. I love my animals very much and if i thought this would stress him out i would not have done it. The costume was on him literally about 1 minute. After the photos i put him in his cage and gave him a treat.


FAQ
Is he legal?
Yes, in Colorado, you can have dwarf caimens. Check your state laws before you buy one since they are illegal in certain states.

How big will he get?
About 4 or 4.5 feet.

What cage is he in?
A big cage, 3/4ths water, 1/4th land. He had a little waterfall filter too. He is a happy croc!

Is he mean or aggressive?
No he is actually pretty tame. Hence why i could even get this costume on. Normally caimen are not tame and not at all for beginners.

Thanks very much!
I hope you all enjoy! HAPPY EARLY HALLOWEEN!


Last years costume.

I love this, he is so cute. The bumblebee one was great too, I had it as the background for my phone for a long time, because I mean, come on, who dresses up their pet caimen? You do! Keep it up, I think everyone likes these alot ;p

LOL i had to go look it up XD people on there are like "its gonna eat her" LOL The day a 4 foot croc eats a full grown human is going to be like the day when hell freezes over. :XD: Either way its kinda cool the publicity its getting. Even the director of iron man twittered it.

Thankyou so much! :hug:

Well in about 1 year he grew about 9 inches, so i think ive got about 2 to maybe 3 years before hes FULL size. :) I am happy they are slow growers XD

Very nice! I've still yet to see or hear of many tame caimans. I think I'd just get a tegu before I'd get something that can more easily rip off an arm, ahah. How'd you manage to tame your's down?

Yea mine is the only one ive ever known to be semi tame. Most are pretty aggressive. Just realize tegu can be very aggressive too. Get it as a baby and handle it as much as possible. I got bitten pretty badly by a tegu once, lost alot of blood lol. BUT ive seen some tegu that are tame as kittens. So just handle it lots. :) (but tegu have way more potential to be tame than the dwarf caimen) Tegu are awesome!

Ohyeah, I know that tegus can be pretty snappy if they aren't handled enough. I've yet to get bit by a monitor or tegu, but I've been whipped by their tails a few times. Surprised how much that can sting.
