I am again wondering about this. Captivity is stressful, a human finger in their mouth is stressful. anything not normal is stressful. Locked in a small box is stressful.

You sir, always give advice to people about educating themselves. You sir, need to study up on ethology. What your talking about IS BEHAVIOR(ethology) if you had an basic understanding of behavior, you would KNOW, that biting a human finger is stressful. The question is, HOW STRESSFUL.

The point is, is it stressful enough to be deleterious to the animal or its normal behavior? The answer to that is individual.

So there is no one answer, which is a concept foreign to recipe keepers. As you see here, folks fight over EXACT meanings, the problem is, with living animals, including us, their is no EXACT. With behavior, there can be many different responces to a single impulse. (reacting to an impulse is the definition of life). Best wishes and have a great day.

p.s. you see we are so different, you make everything personal, including your reaction to me. Which is silly childs play. This is only a forum, While you can play your silly games, I do not have to. Again, and seriously, have a wonderful day and best of luck.

The reason we fight is, you take everything EXACT, and I am not EXACT, as I have said, I am about ethology which is not exact. What we see when we look at snakes is ethology thats made 0f biology, How that biological unit functions is Ethology. Which is not exact. Thanks
