"it's really no different then hobby hondos that are a mix of all kinds of things... while they can be cool, it will mess up someones breeding project if they think it's pure and it actually isn't."


Hi Aaron.....

It's actually very different. Could you explain to me how a "Hobby Hondo" could mess up someone's breeding project?...LOL!

Anybody that knows of a source to any genuinely authentic L.t.hondurensis (and already knows the differences and paid far more for it as well) would already know that "Hobby Hondos" are varying percentages of other Latin milk ssp. Therefore they would never intend to breed it to an everyday common Hobby Hondo in the first place if they know what they have is indeed authentic. and if they did they would be complete morons. How else would they know about the other one being authentic if they would be so incredibly stupid as to turn right around and breed an authentic one to a hobby Hondo?.........seriously.

The only damage a Hobby Hondo could ever do to anything now is if someone bred it to another Latin subspecies that was something else altogether and keyed-out as such, or was definitely some other type of snake that they shouldn't have bred it with anyway. Either scenario would be their their own blatant stupidity, and of course the hobby mainstream would have to pay for this ignorance just like all the other countless crosses people produce and get misrepresented down the road.

Also, the OP is talking about doing a hybrid cross intentionally , not out of not knowing they are different right from the beginning or anything pertaining to unknown lineage of the breeders. His example is exactly like if I asked someone on a forum if I could breed my genuinely authentic L.t.abnorma to a Hondo or a pure L.t.polyzona or stuarti, etc... That would be an intentional cross, and a huge catastrophic disaster.

See the difference?.........I sure hope so.


cheers, ~Doug
