I completely agree with the whole breeding thing but don't expect people to just agree with you because I honestly don't feel you are right. Most reptiles (not all) can adjust to human precence and interaction like any other creature. In my own case it is neccessary to keep them used to the idea of human handeling to lower (not negate) stress and prevent lash outs. Most of my herps take handling quite well I won't say they like it but they tolerate it however some, like my gator, i feel will probably never get used to it. It a common sense thing there is no absolute answer to this question, some do better then others, like most things to do with reptiles at most we know very little and have to go by our judgement. Reptiles are not socail they are not domesticated but they can be handled within the proper parameters. My opinion take it or leave it.
