"I could never recommend to another person that they keep their animals in an obviously inferior way such as indoors"
Since I stated I keep my animals indoors I think that qualifies as belittling my setup. Thats just one quote. There was more that was condescending but what the heck. He's as entitled to his opinion as I am. On a side note, have either one of you had breeding success with your spotteds? If so what were the clutch sizes? Was there any mortality after they hatched? Were they kept outdoors or were they kept indoors until they reached a certain size? Were they hibernated or kept awake during their first winter? It would be interesting to know.
