Hello I'm looking for an alligator snapping turtle. The smaller the better so I can watch it grow. If you know anyone or know where I can look, your help is appreciated. Thanks

I believe that is illegal to sell them anywhere in the U.S. as they are protected.

Last time I went to the Hamburg show hatchlings were plentiful a reasonably priced.
They are an amazing animal, but the responsibility is huge with these guys. As I'm sure you know, they are extremely long lived animals, and will require a very large container in the not to distant future.

Luckily they grow slow. About a half inch to an inch a year depending on gender.
