Default Re: Paramesotriton chinensis/hongkonensis hybrids

There's a fairly big difference between "destroy them all!" and "don't spread them around!"

Chances are the offspring are infertile but even if not I doubt they pose a threat to the domestic paramesotriton population (or wild for that matter), especially if the sellers are honest about their origin. They still make nice pets. When did you ever see a cb paramesotriton in a pet shop? Never I bet. Wouldn't it be better to buy a cb F1 hybrid over a wild collected animal suffering in a pet shop?
