I understand basic genetics, and i told you that the kingsnake/cornsnake example was a crappy one, but in some cases im sure there would be an immediate impact upon captive species...for instance an old world hybrids being released into a fragile New World environment. Do you reemmber the problem when snakeheads (carnivorous fish) were released into Maryland ponds?? They ate everything and grew to enormous numbers. It doesn't take much to throw off the balance of our ecosystem.

Now you people who are truly, deeply into hybridization for the money, just remember the risk youre taking. "Only when the last tree has been cut down and the last stream dammed and the last field is paved over, will humans realize they can't eat money".
