Pretty close, I think what happened was something like what happens here. His third wave was way past what people did and could understand. His third wave was opposite of mass commercial breeding, and of European style. Where different keepers produce different species in limited numbers. In the states, the move was on to fill markets. Which led to the opposite approach, sweater box rack systems. Which supported the keeping of many animals in a factory setting.
This ruined PDV. This separation also supported a minimizing of species, as only a few species such as hogs "put up with" sweater box, factory minimalize caging. PDV was dreaming about reptiles that are expressive, behavioral and active, entertaining species.
The third wave is about these species. The ones now considered difficult. My articles were based on that, At the time, varanids were considered the most difficult of all. My approach, that I learned from kings and other colubrids, revolutionized varanids. So of course, PDV loved me and my approach. To add my approach of accommodating basic species needs added to his third wave approach was indeed great for herp keeping. Unfortunately, private commercialism type setups that needed little knowledge to work, took over. Let me be a arse for a second, commercial setups like the big boys use, is about not about those big breeders you mention. They are designed to be maintained by employees with no herp interest or knowledge. Folks just doing their job. Anyway, PDV, dreamed, I fixed the problems in those dreams. Those were good days.
