In Reply to: Gila rumor.... posted by john5442 on September 29, 2002 at 17:41:15:
John, It was my understanding that the animal is still in the care of the fish and game department. It is very unlikely that they will part with it. If it goes anywhere it will more than likely go to a zoo or someone they are afiliated with. In fact, it is also my understanding that they wanted to dispose of the animal. I sure wish it was for sale and obtianable. Gilbert Thompson
:I was recently talking to a person within the law enforcement community who told me that Dr. Seward was the recipeint of a few confiscated gilas. The animals were described to me as amelanistics or hypomelanistics. Could someone comment on this. Is it just a rumor or are albino gilas in the working?
