OK so you can breed and they will reproduce, but they are from two different families. The Westerns are from the family Crotaphytus Insularis (Bicinctores) and the Easterns are From the family Crotaphytus Collaris (Collaris).

They are different shapes and colours, though still "Collared Lizards". I guess its the same as mixing an indian Elephant with an African Elephant, you still get an elephant that's a combination of the two, they'll have characteristics of both, so you probably won't get some turn out looking eastern and some looking western, they'll have combined features of both. As for colour, I have no idea, try it and send us some pictures !!

I also double checked too that hybrid species are, infact fertile and can again reproduce successfully !!

Edit: I have given mine silk worms AND butter worms in the past, they wouldn't eat them, lol

You'd have to make sure they were labelled as hybrids if you ever sold them.
