Holy crap, someone with some actual credentials posted! This is far too rare an occasion. Often, not always but often, someone like myself that is not a total newb but far from an expert will come on here to seek answers to their questions as they advance in the hobby and what we get is this kind of rambling BS. I've said it before and it may never come to be but I think it would be nice to have a forum on this site where we could direct our questions to someone we can trust knows what the hell they're talking about. It's all well and good to do your research, observe your particular animal and ask other keepers what they do but getting answers that are backed by vast experience or professional training is far better. Maybe it's not possible to bring that type of service to this particular venue, I don't know one way or the other, but it would certainly be better than 6 pages of shite and nonsense which is what we have here for the most part.
I feel a little light headed... maybe you should drive...
