Could I breed a male Texas rat to female chocolate Emory rat snake? I hope. What would the offspring be😶
I believe they have found natural intergrades in the wild so it does not seem like there is any kind of genetic barrier
@thebeardedherper Maybe you have some input on this?
You absolutely could breed those species to one another, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a chocolate P. emoryi x TX rat hybrid, so I don’t know what the young might look like. Please do it and then share photos
I agree with that, that man loves his hybrids
It actually was also
Called a Great Plains rat … or grey. All the research I’ve done on these locals, they basically are the same … slightly different skull shapes. *** this is not my animal!*****
It’ll be atleast two years and I’ve never gone out of my way to Brumaire an animal strictly for breeding so… wish me luck!
While absolutely can cross them as you could any north american ratsnakes I would imagine that the offspring would come out looking almost indistinguishable from one or both of the parents so I would not cross them. The reason being that offspring that are not immediately recognizable as something other than either parent species shouldn’t be sold as it has a much higher risk of being accidentally bred as a pure and muddling the blood lines.
