You are absolutely correct. People of all ages give misinformation and are guilty of "talking above their experience". That is why i also used the term newbie. In my mond, i have met people in their 50's that i still consider "kids". By the same token, I trained a 15 year old "Kid" venomous handling and husbandry. Why? Because he is one of the smartest herpers I have met. Only 15 and he is a sophmore in college studying herpetology and doing a great deal of field work. As far as biolog and natural history, this kid was amazing. But he did not pretend to know venomous handling because he read an internet article. That made me respect him more.
I planted some bird seed. A bird came up. Now I don't know what to feed it.
