"Maybe you could give more info. on your views and get a more rational debate started."

Those who are cross breeding do not want a rational debate. They would like this subject to just go away and for everyone to hide their heads in the sand. They hate to see the subject brought up here on kingsnake. Why do you think that is???

::Why are people hybidizing boas? They are MUTTs, plain and simple. Some of the excuses are: hybrids occur in the wild, and "they will be microchipped" so people know what they are getting. I think the pure locals should be kept pure. I could get a male albino columbian and breed him to my hogg island females----but WHY?? I just do not understand...

:Before hybridizers will try to help you understand them, maybe you should make an effort to help them understand why you think they should be kept pure? All you really did was voice your opinion-one that has been stated countless times here and everwhere else. It still hasn't stopped hybridizing, but all you can expect from a post like yours is blatant arguing. Maybe you could give more info. on your views and get a more rational debate started. I'm not trying to belittle you in any way, I just thought I'd give some thoughts before this gets out of hand like posts on this topic often do.
