Okay I'll buy that on generic crosses however gene flow between adjacent subspecifics is well documented. This makes the concept of a "pure" sinoloan somewhat subjective. In the context of captive breeding if it looks like a sinoloan, acts like a sinoloan and when bred to another sinoloan makes baby sinoloans then its a sinoloan. By a widely accepted useage of the term it could even be considered a "purebred" sinoloan! IMHO what is at the heart of this is economics. Why is an albino Greeri cross worth $65 and a pure albino greeri $1000 or more? Both are aboritions. I would suggest that the difference in value is entirely on novelty. Certainly once "pure" animals are produced in numbers prices come more in line.
