So, since I came here, people battle, fight, argue, attack, but mostly fail to understand context.
Over the decades, my work was to use nature to improve captivity. Simple. And I have effected in a positive way, the basic keeping of many types of reptiles.
With hogs, the "normal" method to keep them, has nothing to do with hogs or hogs in nature, zero. no reason to have a turned up nose. Or anything hognose. Does it matter, yes and no. It does matter to the hognose. possibly not so much to the keeper.
With the exception of when there's problems, and more importantly problems that can be cured, EASILY. Like nesting. When a snake scatters eggs, its aborting, not nesting. yet aborting is promoted here and in books. That made my stomach hurt. Seriously, go up to a wife, doesn't have to be yours, and tell her to hold that child 14 more days, or until shes near dead. Please wear a Kevlar suit and armor plating.
Or stuff(crap) about females under 200 grams getting eggbound, please, they cycle when they are sexually mature, they ovulate, with the intention of carrying out normal reproduction. Its not your call. Your(people who say that crap) job as a keeper is to support what is natural to them, not manipulate them to fit our crappy conditions. Or rationalize by comparing wild animals to humans. Which is commonly done here. The word HUSBANDY, means to support. Not control.
So,the reading your doing, is it in context to this forum? Is it in context to something that can be applied? Or is it used as a tool to argue? Please understand, that's normally how that data is used in academic institutions. to discuss, to debate, to compare to other data, all academic situations not to be applied to the living animal. Therefore, "academic" to this forum. End part 2
