Paul, obviously you have no clue as to what you are talking about. It is a lie to say that I have ever crosssed an animal, let alone an indigo. I was contacted immediately when this message went up. I never participate in forums because of stupidity like this. The animal you have pictured is a yellow-tail, can't you tell the difference. I have over fifty pure breed indigos in my collection. All of my Texas Indigos came from wild caught stock. I do not have a single animal in my collection that was produced by another breeder in this country. I bought my first Texas Indigos from Don Hamper back in the 1970's, they had been collected by a very noteable zoo director. In the early 1970's I collected a number of additional animals myself.

I have collected all but three species of indigos. I would never allow an animal into my collection that I did not collect or breed because I know that most of the animals on the market are not pure bred animals and I will not buy from most breeders. I had two "Texas" animals from Brian Sharp that I later sold before ever breeding them. Currently, I have several litters of D.c. corais and D.c. melanurus for sale. I am sold out of D.c. cooperi and D.c. errebenus.

Paul, I presume your ignorance related to the crossing of D.c. errebenus and D.c. cooperi is related to the amount of red on my errebenus. A truely informed person who has seen literally dozens of these animals in the field and hundreds of these animals at wholesalers would understand that your average Texas Indigo from certain areas will have far more red on them than any Eastern Indigo. My first Texas Indigos cost me $15 apiece and they both dropped eggs the first night that I had them. At the time collectors where selling Texas Indigos to zoos for king cobra food.

Paul, your message is an insult and I cannot wait to see you again.
