In my opinion the ONLY disadvantage, and I use that word lightly, with Emory/Guttatta mix is the simple fact that it isn't pure guttatta guttatta. Some people just don't want anything other then "pure" guttatta guttatta.
We have had many many discussions about hybrid or intergrade when discussing "creamsicles".
Some people say it can't be an intergrade unless they are from overlaping areas. So unless you know their true area they are hybrids.
Some say that because guttatta and emory do have areas that overlap and they are both Elaphe guttatta (Elaphe Guttatta guttatta or Elaphe Guttatta emory)that any emory/guttatta mix is an intergrade. Forced intergradation I think is the term Kathy Love used.
I personaly beleive intergrade. But that is just MHO.
Now, back to there being disadvantages with the mix. Which I don't think there is.
If you plan on breeding guttatta and emory then you just need to be sure that anyone who gets one of your snakes knows there is Emory background.
Emory blood can bring out some excellent colors in corns. Some of the most beautiful corns I have seen are "creamsicles".
I can only speak from the experience of my one Creamsicle but she is my favorite. Best eater, most active, tamest and prettiest.
I WILL own more Creamsicles.
Now all of the above is My Opinion Only so take it for what it's worth.
Jimmy
