That's not hard to believe at all. You know some local breeders who have the capability. Now consider that there are many breeders who have collections on that scale and consider there are many more who do not network. Consider those large scale breeder who have 'keyed' onto the breeding of these animals...

I'm not saying what you propose is not true. I'm saying I think it is unlikely for may reasons.

The other point is that you can't help but remember when baby Sulcatas were in the hundreds and the founding stock for those was way smaller than the Russians.

It is interesting.


>>Well, I guess that's where we differ because I don't see how there were that many Russian breeders who cranked out hundreds upon hundreds of babies and all of these babies fell into the hands of a few wholesalers. These were in record numbers like a sulcata epidemic. That one doesn't make any sense either. The only thing that MIGHT make sense is that if there was a person out there who nobody knows that has a HUGE colony of Russians that are all now cranking out babies by the hundreds, but even that is hard to believe.......Now, I'm driven enought to research this even more.........
