We could be dealing with an endangered species.

Humans are a pretty mixed bag of intergrades too and such intergradation has been pretty successful. I agree to the extent that I don't want to meet a half Sapien, half Simian.

As it is with everything, we should practice moderation. BTW, Emory's and corns naturally intergrade in at least three states. If anyone catches animals in those areas, they are naturally occuring intergrades. Natural creamsicles without the red eyes. In some places most of the population are intergrades. I imagine that some of those animals have made it into our "hobby" without being noticed so I suspect that tainted bloodlines were inevitable.

I certainly agree that some in the industry are ignorant or greedy enough to misrepresent or not know they have non-pure animals. Regretably such is the nature of man.
