I too enjoy them and for the same reasons. But why is it, This or that, not this and that? Normally when I get envolved in a subject like hognose, I gather papers, read them, books, read them Keep some in captivity, read and test them and do field work. That is normal, I also consult outside areas, like I did here, when I came here I asked if anyone kept hogs in a hognose sort of way. And of course I received a beating. fights, arguments, etc, all because I was interested in a particular area.
There are a couple of points I would like to make you aware of, 1. peer review, is not intended for us. That is, its not taken for or aimed at the average person or captivity. And its certainly not for cutting edge research. Think about this, if it has to be OK'd by peers, then its not going to be new.
2. the most important aspect of peer reviewed is to make the reader AWARE of something, not believe in that something. In fact, every paper ever written is suppose to be under constant attack. Such areas as behavior, is "new" to the culture of peer review. In most cases, behavioral papers are published in non peer reviewed journals. Got to go, please continue with more questions
