I didn't want to waste my breath on someone like Mike who was so quick to jump down my throat for not being a geneticist. I don't know the little boy and hope it stays that way. It never ceases to amaze me how immature some people can be when they need a little attention. There was no good reason for Mike respond like he did. At the same time I won't waste my time trying to respond to him because he and his comments are insignificant to me.

My very brief statement that he jumped all over was saying exactly what you did. Tigers and specks occur together in several ranges (not just one or two) in the Phoenix area and they are commonly found in very similar habitat. That would lead me to believe that the "possibilty" does exist that they could cross-breed, but NOT that it necessarily does. I have seen a LOT of both species in almost all the ranges in the phoenix area and never found anything close to a hybrid.

I think that in a natural setting it would be rare at best but in un-natural conditions, such as being thrown in the same cage or bucket I think it's very possible. I too think that they are much more similar genetically, than some believe. Certainly closer than a mollosus and an atrox which we know can give off viable offspring.
