Hi all
I am researching GTP with the intent of purchasing my firs GTP. While speaking with a breeder at an expo he stated that crosses have shorter lifespans than pure locales. I can't find any evidence of this, and can't rationalize why that would be. Can anyone confirm this and explain why they would have a shorter lifespan? Or is this misinformation? I hope I'm not stirring up any sensitive issues- just looking for some facts.

Thanks!
