I've really been trying to stay out of this but...... Gino you said
Again, and one more time for you, here is all I am trying to say: JUST BECAUSE PEOPLE HAVE BRED SNAKES UNDER THESE CONDITIONS, THAT DOES NOT MEAN IT IS OK. Afterall, I can raise an adult bearded dragon in a five gallon aquarium. I might even be able to get him to breed. Does that make it ok?
I think what Ken is trying to get across is that he could use that same argument about temp gradients. Just because most people keep snakes that way and get them to breed, does that mean it's the right way or the *only* way?
Ken isn't saying that it is wrong to keep snakes using a temp gradient, he is saying that no one is giving concrete proof that keeping them at one temp is harmful.
