: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?
:Edward

good reply consider it.. not done. I will get the appropriate mates. The only reason I got the IJ is because the store from which I bought him said he was captive bred and a northern. I was a little upset when I got him but he was in fair health and I couldn't bear to send him back. I put the blame on me. I was looking for the best price on the net. At least he is well taken care of now.
