It was a pastel king Michelle, but I agree with Joe and Aaron......

There's nothing wrong with folks keeping and breeding hybrids just as long as they aren't trying to pull the wool over a buyer's eyes. Separating them would direct those that actually want a hybrid straight to where the hybrids are sold....that is it.

And Joe....You are right, our Mexicana are so far removed from the wild it is almost impossible to use the word "pure" anymore. Hell...it is impossible really.....

We should use terms like untainted or never been crossed with another species or subspecies.....and only if you know all of the above to be true......

Placing those reputable breeder's names (lineage) in the ads are all we can really do......And hope none of folks ever got animals that were crossed in captivity......They even cross in the wild and until we can collect in Mexico again and have true locality data this is all we can do........

I have one pair that I don't know the 100% true story behind and I have my reservations about them being called thayeri.....So I call them Generic Mexicana and I always will if I do not have 100% accurate lineage......
