I hear what you're saying(well..i think ido..) of course what we do today is founded upon what others did in the past. However, i'd be willing to bet that what elements/aspects each individual integrates into their method/philosophy/approach to husbandry may be likened to the recombinate nature of DNA, where combinations from the past which proved themselves viable in past contexts are passed forward through generations in time. Slight variances to more significant ones develop and continue until other shifts either incorperate the old, outperform them, or progress along side in differentiating populations. Such are the ways of husbandry.

Alas, the full page-er's have deloped a formidable set of traits what with their care-sheets, critter carpets, and cans of tegu food, their ideal examples of proper housing,only overshadowed by the expertise of their staff..(ok..that last part was largely aimed at the petcos of the world...)

But there are those who know better, and as a whole they(we?) Do what we can to keep the genome of progressively better husbandry still thriving in the gene pool, so to speak...

So..i guess what i m really saying is,not only that Frank is a lucky mutant..but that alot more lizards are doing better as captives because of that lucky mutant who has put forth a lot of work and ongoing effort to disseminate not only the results of his works but the means by which others may attain similar effect with their own animals.

Sure..he's not alone in this mission, hell even Watson had Crick!( just to further the strand) But as far as i know, frank was the one that tied the ackie to the kitestring during the thunderstorm..maybe he didnt invent husbandry, but he certainly has helped alot of people understand it better!
Ok....ok...i ll get off the basking spot...
Ben~i would be interested in hearing about your experiences with v.rudicollis as well as your plans for further..well..."roughing it".. i know...sorry..!
