Brad and Dusty,

I am not trying to pick a fight. I am saying not to throw rocks when "you" may be guilty of exploitation "yourself". (not Brad or Dusty)

As far as being a "real" herpetologist, I am sure there are lots of them by the loosest definition of the word. There are surely several areas of herp studies, as well as how much good each area of those studies are good for. For example, I know a person that has a PhD. Ask him the best place to find a Texas Banded Gecko. Response - ?????????? I have run into the same thing teaching entomology. A PhD in Ento studying Sand Flies. Good stuff but ask him where to find a Kissing Bug - ??????

Bottom line with me is if you wanna show me how smart you are, SHOW ME, do not tell me about it. And trust me I am not questioning either one of you about your education levels. I actually do value your input into this discussion.
