Default Hybrids

Hi, I know that not everyone likes hybrids and some people do, but I will be getting a pueblacorn in the next couple of weeks. I personally quite like them and see no difference from breeding two different breeds of dog together. They are both effectively mixed breeds.

Anyway I wanted to see if there is anyone on here that keeps hybrids. How do you find them to keep? Is there temperament affected much by the fact that the are a cross? Also don't forget to include some pics of your hybrids

Thanks for any replies

some hybrids are unusually aggressive ie woma x ball, but some are unusually calm ie ruthveni x whatever tends to take on the ruthveni's calm attitude, pueblan crosses often lack the pueblans tendency to be nervous.

its an interesting side effect of the mesh of genes, i have no problem with hybrids either, their just pets in a box just like everyone elses pure pets in a box, the moral superiority some take is comical given our use of the animals.

rgds and congrats on the pueblacorn.

I'm not too fussed if it is a bit flighty or nervous like a pueblan, I have plenty of experience of milks so it wouldn't be too bad. I quite like hybrids really and think they look nicer than some of the fancy royal morphs, they are also more natural. Can't wait to get him, also getting a Bellaglades rat snake and a banded Cali king

there are crosses where sometimes the genes don't mesh so well, a clutch of scrub x carpet and a clutch of bull x corn where most of the resulting offspring had cleft palate's of varying severity. whether it was a random event, environmental, i cant say, but such deformations in that number in pure clutches would be extremely unusual.

it could be a consequence of species a x species b or simply a consequence of those particular specimens and not a reflection on those crosses as a whole.

It's not my cup of tea, but if it floats your boat then fair enough.

Very different from dog breeding though. All dogs are canis lupus familiaris - the same subspecies as one another. They are all just selectively bred grey wolves and only a few thousand years at most separates any two dogs from their last common ancestor.

Your pueblacorn, lovely as she may be, is the product of pairing two animals that are classified in different genera, let alone species, and whose last common ancestor lived millions of years ago.

What's more, different breeds of dog would copulate naturally in the wild. Ratsnake and King/Milk snakes live sympatrically in many places without interbreeding. They have evolved reproductive isolation mechanisms to avoid reproducing in the wild, and those can only be overcome if animals are forced together in a terrarium.

So by all means keep hybrid snakes - but don't imagine it's the same thing as owning a labradoodle!

All the best.

I never said that it was the same thing, but the way I see it there is many people that are against hybrids and I see not difference between owning a mixed snake and mixed dog. They are both mixed and the mixing can have both negative and positive effects on the animal. It is quite possible for some species of snake to hybridise in the wild, it is just not very common and the young often don't survive

Its not about moral superiority at all, the reason most of us don't like hybrids is because they are often then bred and sold as pure animals. Hog island boas are constantly bred to hypos just for the hypo hogs the other normal crosses are commonly sold as pure hogs or pure commons.

I have no issue with hybrids providing everyone involved knows exactly what they are, although carpondros I will never understand
