As i originally stated...i have my serious doubts as to how much scientific study ( carried out by professional learned experienced herpetologists ) there is or is currently taking place,not trial and error breeding programs by breeders without the real background in biology,genetics,etc that has taken place to date....:(

After all who would finance a program to find another snake morph...certainly no university i think!

Sure, as far as the likes of corns and TX rats,etc we may have a fairly good understanding of their genetic pool makeup,breeding possibilities but what about the 2,500+ other snake species ( not even talking about ssp's ).

Will man ever be able to truly understand this level of complexity? I for one think not and caution those that wish to play G-d to take heed and ask themselves some serious questions b4 they jump into cross breeding.

Its not just about another color morph or "wow" snakey for the kiddies. It goes far beyond that...It's about nature, reptiles and mankinds precarious future to say the least....
