 Interbreeding

I know that a lot of people are against interbreeding of lizzards and such, But can you r interbreed red tail boas or is that not a good idea?

 Interbreeding

Really not a good idea, especially from the same line, in some cases it is done when proving out an animal, but if dont too excessively it weakens the gene pool among them, and can result in problems later down a line that has become too inbred, a thing I hear is sharp strain albino boas have a lot of deformities, due to being so inbred, inbreeding is never a good idea to do IMO, at least not to an extreme as has been done with some animals.

 Interbreeding

I would definately have to agree. Even though inbreeding is used by very experienced herpers to get color morphs, excessive inbreeding can cause genetic diseases, deformities and so on.

Besides....dont you think that would be wrong if we got you and your parents......siblings.....or whoever and told you guys to breed with each other just because we like how you look? Think about it.

in the wild a snake is more than likely to breed with a fellow sibling than not
