In Reply to: Tiger/speck... and any other hybrids... posted by Jaffo on September 12, 2002 at 12:16:07:

that the statement below went overboard as to hybrids happen "commonly", there are actually very few documented cases of wild hybrids. Several here say, but few with actual specimens or pictures. But, what I disagree with you on Jaf, is that tigris and mitchelli are that "different". Yes there are differences in their biology, especially when one considers behaviors, but throw in cerastes and you got a good clade going there. They are actually pretty close snakes. I suspect there few, but obvious, morphological differences are due to natural selective pressures in their individual niches.
