Default Re: Paramesotriton chinensis/hongkonensis hybrids

And most certainly deserving of a decent life.

Mark, the key word is "honest", there. As long as everybody knows that those are hybrids and treats them accordingly, they are absolutely not a problem, i fully agree. The trouble comes when somebody is dishonest about it or simply ignores the fact that they are hybrids, thatīs when those animal could potentially be problematic. And itīs a situation that most of us would really like to prevent.
Personally i wouldnīt like to see CB hybrids offered through pet-shops for the reason above.

I know you are sick and tired of all this, Erfus, i do xD I hope you understand, though, why it is an issue for so many of us.
They are lovely little things and a credit to your hability as a breeder, as this genus is not the easiest to breed or raise. We just hope they are never given the chance to perpetuate the genetic introgression into other bloodlines (provided that itīs even possible).
