I don't know if it has already been said, but I would guess that it has something to do with the high number of farmed babies along with the high number of co-dominant/incomplete dominant morphs.

Co-doms are visibly present in the field and can be selectively caught and exported because of the high price tag they can demand. Plus there are literaly thousands and thousands of babies captive hatched in farms. These babies can easily be picked through for anything different, before mother nature has her way with them.

Know I'll go see what others think.
