I see your problem Ben, you seem to add all manner of adjectives and descriptive phrases. I never, nor guy did not add those.
I did what most pioneers do. I applied the right information, at the right time, and in a timely manner. Which means, I did it, when it was needed.
I would think we all know "information" is always available, yet application does not always occur. I went against the grain and I applied it when all and I mean all varaphiles thought I was crazy wrong.
A much simpler analogy, I breed mice. I started with the help of a local mouse breeder(masters in herp, rosy boa field work) After I did it for a few years, he came by and said, oh, I thought of that, and I thought of this too, and that. Then he said, I just didn't put it together and make it work. The point is, I did.
So all this your talking about is silly, I took biology and I credit my teacher for allowing me to think and not memorize. I credit my College Mill and Cabinet teacher for the best lesson ever. He had us create a year long project. Then after we turned it in, he said, good, now make the tools to make your project. That was a great lesson.
So Ben I have to ask, did DeVinci invent paint(egg white) or canvas, or brushes. Did Van Bruwn(sp) invent atoms or the bomb?
I simply applied known information and made it work. All I did was allow animals to do, what they are designed to do. What they have been doing for tens of thousands of years.
I accepted that what they do is normal, and how we keep them is not. So I allowed them to be normal and I did it from looking at the animals, not academic literature. All those things you pointed out resulted in what? did they apply it to varanids and have it WORK? Let me remind you, doing something special is about timing. You sir were simply too late. Best wishes
