I am begining to see a lot of hyrids for sale at high prices & just want to know how people feel. i personally will not breed my male ball python to my female macklots just b/c I don't have a male to mate her w/ yet. My male ball has a female & eggs incubating. I think these high prices are encouring people to interbreed species not even sister species,aspidtes is far from python,at the diamond,green tree,& carpets all belong to morelia. Ok some species naturally hybridize ie retics & burms but what I'm seeing is species that would never meet in natural circumstances so why breed these to comnad a higher price? Have these hybrids even proven to be fertile? The hobby is to preserve not destroy species. This doesn't just apply to pythons but I see lampropeltis & elaphe hybrids etc.
