There is no need to prove, I am sure one is hatched and is abnormally tweaked and dies. That clears it out of the genepool.

The point to your for arguments sake reply is. You have folks here with the feeding problems, with unrelated animals. Its not the animals.

Then you have husbandry that's as minimal as can be. A box, a bowl and some manner of substrate, and you think its the animals fault. These are reptiles that DEPEND on their environment for biological supports(ectotherms) ectotherm - definition of ectotherm by the Free Online Dictionary . An organism that regulates its body temperature largely by exchanging heat with its surroundings; a poikilotherm. ec•to•therm (ˈɛk təˌθɜrm) n. a cold-blooded ...

Not only is heat obtained but other physical needs as well. And you kind sir want every individual to get that from a bare box. hmmmmmmmmmmm They are not just a species, but individuals as well, which means, they each have the choice to obtain their needs differently, to a small degree(pun)

Sadly, these bare boxes do work for some, just not all, which is why I refer to it as AVERAGE(to start).

The minimalistic approach taken so often is sad. But whats worse is those folks blaming the animals.

In this case, the animal in question was TWEAKED(added heat) and it responded by feeding better. So it was IN FACT, not a genetic misfit. My question is, you shouldn't have to tweak, it already should of had that option. Best wishes


The temps I took like this yesterday, ranged from 97F to 106F. It was bloody hot out, but they were out in the HOT voluntarily. At those temps, prey is digested, FAST. By the way, they were all feeding because the bloody bastages all crapped on me. hahahahahaha
