Hi Frank,

Without question, we've dumbed down herpetoculture to the extreme in the last two decades. In some ways its good because these "easy" methods draw in new people who quickly build the confidence that they can do it.. which is not to keep the herps well, but simply breed them without too much worry or concern and market their babies. However, those species that are behavioral, like hogs, get marginalized and put in tiny tubs 'cause they'll take and still pump out eggs. However, species that aren't genetically programmed to be treated like feed lot cattle quickly leave the scene... and that my friend is sad, because many that are no longer available didn't fit that cookie cutter mentality, but they could have taught us a lot. Thanks buddy.

Will
