Hi Will, That was a very unsual time. In fact, Phillipe wrote that articule not to promote me, but instead to promote the keeping of small reptiles. He was a fan of expressing more with smaller reptiles. And doing so with complex caging. Caging that was pleasing to both the keeper and the kept. Which made me a fan of his.

At that time I avoided talks or interviews, the reason was, I was at the bottom of a very steep learning curve. Each week that pasted, I doubled my understanding of varanids. The vast majority of my field work and captive success was still ahead of me.

I often confused the varanid keepers of the time and they did not like me for it. I conterdicted myself on a regular basis, and as you know, I still do. I have no problem deleting what I think and relearning it. I think education is suppose to cause that.

I did not have lots of great teachers when I was young, but I had a few. One taught me that knowledge is a river that constantly flows and changes. It grows and becomes something it was not. Its never the same, its always changing, its always on its way to be something else.

If you break down a river to its base, its H2O. But that can never ever explain or capture a river.

I do defend what I think, but if I see I need to adjust, I do so if the evidence dictates that. And it did on a constant basis. I hope it continues

The problem with these fellas is, they are afraid to be wrong. So they break it down to something they can understand and be RIGHT about. Even out of context sentences.

Unfortunately, its not about right or wrong. To bad, or these folks would be great people.

ITs about results, and in that, they and I are total failures. The hobby is no different today then it was then. The vast majority of captive monitors, DIE QUICKLY, without the benefit of recieving life events.

I hope I have helped, but all in all, a failure.

I believe the reason for such failure is, I was too successful. My success seperated me from them. To bad, that is not such a good thing.

I am different, I am not afraid to be wrong. When testing, your wrong most of the time. THese folks FEAR that. So they do not test. They simply go by whats accepted amoungst themselves. Which is fun and all, but I love results.

You see, the successful results of this testing, TAKES YOU OUT OF THE EQUASION. Or its suppose to. I guess They did not read that memo. So they make it about me.

I wish they would attack the monitors, in my care.

So all the while I am writing this, there is music in my head, ITs something like, "I think I love you, I think I love you". Will, they must love me. Why would they even bother or know what was written about me, 20 years ago. Two darn decades. Its me bum I tell you, its a nice bum! ITs old, but its CLEAN!(a hard days night, the lads from Liverpool)
