In Reply to: How does everyone feel about mixing species?? posted by Kanuck on April 22, 2003 at 12:33:59:
I would never, ever mix species from different continents, and wouldn't mix animals from different habitats. An eastern painted with an eastern mud, well, if the habitat is large enough and each has their own area to occupy, I won't say no. Now, mixing an ornate box turtle with an eastern box turtle - I've seen too many sick turtles from that type of mixing.
:I bring this up because on a lot of the other forums mixing species is considered a sin. I myself don't really feel comfortable doing it although I have in the past for animals from the same geographic area (painted and musk from a lake in my area). I know I dissagree with it when it comes to mixing things like N.A. Wood and Central American Wood turtles or Red eared sliders with African mud turtles and such. What are your thoughts on the subject?
