    Yes indeed, Dav Kaufman ROCKS!!!! His videos are very informative and I learn everytime watching him. This last one on BCI vs BCC was great. It made me stop to think just what he said, "Are we as boa owners keeping our boas correctly?" I also think another person that puts out very good videos is Emily with Snake Discovery channel.
    Back in the day, Brian with Snake Bytes used to have good videos too. But he has gotten away from all that and now his videos are very boring. Now they are all about..lookie what I have...or lookie what I did! Who cares Brian!!! And your reptile substrate isnt that good either!!! ... Oops sorry! I got carried away there for a second. But seriously, his videos used to teach people some interesting things.. Just my 2 cents

    I'll be the bad "guy" here...this (above) is the first video I've watched of his, & I had the same objection with the late Steve Irwin: yes, this is interesting
    stuff, very educational & pro-reptile, BUT WHY do these guys talk about how rare a species is, and then proceed to handle & handle & handle (ie. STRESS)
    the only super rare specimen they come across? WHY??? This is harmful when there's only a few remaining...don't we ALL know better than to do this?
    -even with a new pet? I can remember Steve Irwin capturing some that were illegal for "anyone" to take, & I always thought he sent the wrong message,
    even if (or when?) there was a later comment to the effect that it was released...and guess how difficult it is to release a creature right where you found it?
    Did he do that? I'm doubtful...and even IF you assume the "best" case scenario, the fact that it wasn't made clear is why I objected to his sensationalism
    of our hobby. OK, bring on the "hate"... but I just wish our charming herp-explorers would "practice what they preach"; if an animal is rare & practically
    unknown, then get over your egotistical self, take photos from a respectful & harmless distance INSTEAD of man-handling the poor terrified creatures.
    Sending the wrong message to all the kids watching (not to mention all the adult "hunter-gatherers" out there) is not going to save species for the long run.

    Please just think about the message being sent...not the words, but the deeds. Hype sells, respect doesn't... Rant over, & yes, I'm judging Dav Kaufman
    from this one video...might not be fair, but I don't think his actions were fair either, not to the lizard...my 2 cents.

    I don't feel the lizard was harmed physically or emotionally ...it may be more leery when it sees a human coming but that's the extent of it

    See the thing is, wildlife is generally living on the "edge"...they don't have a cushy life. Many things that we do innocently & enthusiastically with good "intentions" can
    cause them harm, even death...just like when people chase deer in the mountains when they ride snow-mobiles. And there was no good reason for him to handle that
    rare lizard. You cannot always "see" the harm done...it happens later.
