Now if one of you, anyone of you, had some behavioral event that helps me understand hogs in nature, I would and could use it. I would thank you for it.
The point, if anything I come up with can helps you, then please use it, if not, don't. I am sorry I am an old man and the methods used here were used 35, 40 years ago. No offense. Its not new. I bred hogs back then.
The point is, its not about right or wrong, its about what I am interested in. And please, I stated this at the start. Why you want me to be like you, is not in context. My tests are to express natural behavior, its called naturalistic observation. An ethology based area of study. I posted and tested sand, shallow, deep, both. I am testing aspen as well. This tells me if it causes a behavioral change. Sir, I already understand, you can take everything known to them away, you can keep and breed them in a plastic box, with blotter paper and water bowl. No problem, but that is not my interests. I am interested in what makes a hognose, a hognose. Some snake species cannot be kept that way. Compare those two and tells you something about hognose. In the end, I do not give a flying crap what any of you actually do. I can offer options, you can take them or leave them. If those options somehow make you feel bad or inferior, then that's your label, not mine. About the only accurate name I can think of is, insecure. Like, why on earth are you guys so insecure? lastly, I am not interested in what you do, I am interested In what hogs do. Best wishes
