" I got a commom snapper not quite a year ago from a friend and breeder. Charlie was about 1 1/2 inches when I got him, about a 1 year to 1 1/2 yrs old. Everything I have read says they grow about 1 to 2 inches a year. Well, Charlie must be the exception to the rule. He is now from the front of his shell to the back 5 1/2 inches, 9 if you inculded his tail. Mind you I am not measuring him head. He'll try to snap if I attempt that. He is very aggressive, hissing and snapping at anything put in front of his face. I love him to death, he has such a personality, knows his name and responds to it. He has gotten to the point where he doesn't like being in his tank all the time, so he is in it only half the time, and yes he is a male, even though they say you can't tell the sex until they are adults, he has made it more than obvious he is male. So everyone who has a snapper, be prepared for the unexpected with this breed. They are fasinating! "
