You are in the right place. Just ignore the trolls.
The difference is that between these two spp. there is no intergrade zone.
Some species intergrade naturally or at least have the potential to do so.
The california KingXApalichacola has been done many times over the last 20 years.
:I would never dream of being dishonest and saying my snakes are anything other than what they are.
:But now I'm confused.... my understanding was that if you breed two kingsnakes, you get an integrade, you breed a kingsnake and a milksnake you get a hybrid. Where have I gone wrong in my understanding.
:And I asked specifically on the hybrid forum because I was curious about crossing these two geographically separated species to see what I get... not to get a lecture on keeping them pure. I happen to have already crossed the high white cal king with another cal king this season. However since I have no male of the florida species, I felt like seeing what would happen.
:I'm not here to debate hybrid vs. non-hybrid. I've read all the arguments and have not been swayed one way or the other.
:Just curious... HAS this cross been made... does anyone have any pictures of the resulting offspring?
::Actually it would be a hybrid,why breed them?You could find a mate for both of the same & breed.If you decide to breed the Cal. with the Goini/or watever it may be make sure to represent them as Cal./Goini hybrids......the truth is always the best policy.
