I won't argue the species or sub-species mixing.

What I wonder is, if you take some locality kingsnakes out of their habitat and place them in captivity, then whatever specifics that has shaped them over many generations in their old habitat are now changed.

What I am saying is theoretically, even locality animals kept in captivity and bred over many generations - the offspring will eventually might be different in some way from their great great grandparents. I think they are all lab rats once in captivity to some degree. Of course, they will retain certain identifiable color/pattern.

Anyway, I agree that just for the pure interest in these animals, keeping like kinds with like kinds is the best approach. But preserving the original integrity of a wild animal after many generations in captivity might not be completely doable but is certainly "better" than mixing (again, just for our interest in these animals). Anyone wish to comment please do.
