In Reply to: that is not a hybrid! posted by max on January 08, 2003 at 11:05:43:

According to your logic, a black milksnake (Lampropeltis triangulum gaigeae) crossed with an eastern milksnake (Lampropeltis triangulum triangulum) would be an intergrade (even though their ranges don't even come close to overlapping) because they're the same species....don't think so.

The term natural intergrade usually refers to particular localities of different subspecies whose ranges overlap and are known to breed in the wild. I guess it's debatable whether the offspring of two snakes that intergrade in nature would be called an intergrade if they were produced in captivity. In my opinion, it's not a natural intergrade unless it occurs in nature.
