In Reply to: IJ Male,, North Female.BTS,,should I breed Why,or why not?? posted by joeyjoh on April 25, 2003 at 12:43:56:

What would be the benefits? Produce some babies so you can sell them? Poor reason. Why not get a female Irian Jaya and a male Northern for breeding purposes. To breed what you have because it's what you have is a very irresponsible reason for doing it.
The potential harm? Diluting distinct genetic differences between these two "subspecies." (Irian Jayas may not even be T. scincoides; there is a good argument that they are T. gigas hybrids themselves.)
If you are seriously interested in breeding them, get the right mate for each and best of luck. By the way, are you interested in selling your female Northern?
