How can you say that with certainty? Almost every Sinaloan in the
country originated from a) One of three Texas Zoos b) a few smuggled animals that went to southern CA and AZ

Did they trace the lines ALL the way back? Doubtful.
I'm just trying to point out the obvious. If you go back
far enough that's what you would find.

How do I know? Because I was around back then. I was in
the back room of the Reptile House when some of the very
first Sinaloans hatched in captivity.

Knobs are another example in the extreme. There are thousands
of C.B. knobs out there. Most likely originated from two or three different gene pools at most. And if the animals were collected from a single locality, who is to say they are not
related?

Let me say again. I'm not saying that it is impossible to have
unrelated bloodlines. I'm asking how can you prove it? Unless
you trace them back the importation (legal or otherwise) of the
parents, you can not say that with certainty.
