im saying there isnt a bond liek a child. and my point was if you belive herps can have bond of sorts, then it is unethical to keep/sell and breed them for that purpose. seeing as your at this site im sure you have some herps. and therefore your beliefs are inconsistent.
elephants, chimps and soem monkeysand other mammals are the only animals to have seperation anxiety or any problems caused by bond. if you left teh herp in teh same spot as he was for 60 years there woudl be no change in its behavior just becaues someone isnt there.
this does not make them more primative. infact i think it is better for survival not to have bonds.
Only when the last tree has died, and the last river poisioned,
and the last fish caught
