As I thought. You just read "Blah blah blah box blah blah blah touched" and fired straight off into finger-waggling.

I hope others on the forum are more helpful (and better mannered).

Sure, although I offered a summary and repeated the key points in your post. Not sure what you mean by "finger waggling", I haven't made any accusations- only stated the obvious points that can be inferred from your post.

I have been nothing other than well mannered. This discussion is clearly going nowhere though so I won't write anymore.

The poster has only shown concern for the animal and I can understand them wanting to give protection to it from predators etc. Just because it is normal for predation doesn't mean we don't want to try and prevent one animal from becoming food. Maybe they shouldn't have picked it up but we all make mistakes when trying to help an animal we think may be stressed or hurt.

I've received some pertinent and sympathetic advice privately -- and without any holier-than-thou tut-tuts from individuals who ought to release their own reptiles -- and am continuing to monitor the animal in its safe place.

I will close this thread now unless freyav wants me to unlock it to add anything to it. PM me freyav if that is the case.
