I wasn't speaking of Hagrid - you know what you purchased - but of his progeny, which could be mistaken for what they are not and will be out of your control. It has happened before. Morphs are not hybrids as I understand the term. Morphs are color/pattern mutations within species specific animals. Many boa morphs came about, not by hybridization but by intergrading sub-species. Hagrid is not a morph in this sense- he combines two species not sub-species. :Sure I understand and I do agree with your reasoning in part, Hagrid is unique and he is the next morph of sorts. Your worries I feel are misplaced however I would love to hear your opinions on all Morphs. I breed what I call 'true' animals, ie Red Tails, Boelens [well year next maybe] and I do not usually agree with hybrids however I have now come to treat Hagrid as I do my Super Tiger Retic....i.e. man made. I cannot see that the genetics of Hagrids parents are any different to those, cross-bred morphs we all accept as normal. They are not. As for ID, well I plan to infect all Retics and Burmese with Hagrid’s evil genes and together we will take over the world, not… LOL. How can he ever be mistaken for anything other than a Hybrid? Opinions please.
