Anything else?
We know almost exactly how many stars exist in our milkway but we have no idea about the number of species living on our plant. Despit the intensive exploration of our plant there remains surpising gaps in our knowledge of the natural sciences. Captive reptiles and amphibians offer opportunity to study aspects of their behavior which are just not observable in the wild for most species. For example Walter Auffenberg used captive Varanus olivaceus to obtain much of the data on behavior (1988 Gray's Monitor Lizard). His work on V. bengalensis (1994 The Bengal Monitor) relies heavily on observations made on a captive group he kept at his Florida home. Such phenomena as sleeping and walking periods, walking and climbing speeds, and behavior related to feeding, courtship and combat all leand themselves to analyisis in captive specimens. One great advantage of studing such behaviors in captive animals is that comparative data can be gathered under controlled conditions... ~ "the venomous snake, of all the deadly creatures in nature, is slowest to resentmant, the most relunctant to enter into a quarrell " - W.H. Hudson in The Naturalist in La Plata ~
