Its not "know" or applied today by the vast majority of keepers. And that's the truth.

The concept of home and who picks it, is totally lost in modern husbandry. Most buy a hide(whatever that is) and call it a day.

In fact of many herp forums, they(even biologist) state that reptiles brains are not capable of making such decisions. So they keep them in Tupperware.

Ben you seem to want to always fight about crayfish(a worthless fight) when we should be teaming up to help people understand what a home for a reptile is and how to understand when its a home and not a pile of nothing useful. A place a monitor calls home is by far the most important item with varanid husbandry.

David Hancocks was never my boss. What is that about??? He was a director at two zoos that I did contract work for. But not my Boss. I did talk to him a couple times at woodlawn park zoo(not about the work). Not sure I ever spoke to him at the ASDM. Best wishes
