what you are saying there is a clasic case of Anthropomorphism (meaning you give human emotion to your inanimate object or animals.) so as much as we would like to think our animals enjoy our prensence they dont need it to thrive as far as try to say well they need the exersize that is not a justified reason either cause it is our duty to provide a large enugh enclosures so that handaling is put to a minimum. I am strong beliver that reptiles dont need me to intervine with there lives unless it is feeding time of cleaning time. I know my animals dont love me but I still love watching them do there thing.
The sonner ppl realise that the better off this hobby will be.
remember look with your eyes not your hands.
