So this is the Jekyll/Hyde thread? Fair enough.
I'm going to address each of your points but I'm not going through the trouble of quoting you again.

No Frank I won't ship, come and get them or no deal.
I lived in your neighborhood, don't remember ever seeing you.
It has nothing to do with proving anything. I've always said you will find me to be polite and courteous, just not agreeable.
If you saw what I do here at least you would stop making stuff up about me, no way I would carry on a long term conversation with you having to constantly defend myself against your pretend version of me and what I do.

Fat. yes, many people do anthropomorphize animals and what they need and certainly they need and use fat differently in captivity vs. nature. Ever seen a captive specimen and a wild ones fat stores compared? Ever seen a captive female's fat stores right after oviposition?

I've never needed a lab to analyze my prey items either BUT there is something in shellfish that allows young monitors to grow quickly and strong and females to reproduce well and do so over and over.

Yes I'd agree that older males could do well on a shellfish diet.

Yes Frank, let's be past the past and grow up.
Let's compare oranges to oranges.
I'll share my experience with dumerils and you share yours.
We can compare results.
I'd like that, and I'd love to have an actual conversation with you about diet, husbandry of all species so you don't feel I'm just trying to talk about one species, that would be fine Frank.

Oh, reading on, your post you just fire up the insults and lies right after calling a truce, smooth move dude! check your meds!

Guess what Frank? I did live where you do and did buy shellfish, you ignore this fact every time and spew your talking points, you keep saying they aren't available, and they are expensive, more so than mice, and you know so by not ever looking for them. Again, you have no data, but you have a strong opinion, good for you tuff guy, say what's that restaurant down the street..
