You once again YOU missed my point...
Gila Monster subspecies cannot be grouped by physical or morphological similarity. A more accurate method must be employed to determine subspecific identity. The characters used to distinguish between Gila Monster subspecies is useless because subspecies overlap considerably.
To eliminate this taxonomic dilemma, genetic analysis of DNA is needed.
It seens to me that you are a reptile hobbiest looking for the man made Art/Herpetoculture lattest tread. :)
You know, people are usually afraid of what they can not understand. :) :)
Sit back and learn... :) :) :)
: Marty, and nut sack,
: you guys missed my point. My point Is that sometimes It isn't easy to always tell what sub specie you are looking at, and It isn't always as you put It Marty "cut N dry," but If you are worried that your animal might be on the fence (looking like It could be confused with two different sub specie) than acquire animals that leave nothing to speculation. You can't tell me that having a Cintum like some of the animals on the cover of Dr Seward's book could actually be miss labeled and really are Suspetum. Give ME a break. ZACK!
