Re: What's the deal with scaleless snakes?

I don't think that inbreeding is as common in wild reptiles as people think. Aside frm the random islands and very strict ranges at least. I think the only way to know for sure would be to track and see how far baby snakes/other reptiles actually spread out from where they are born. It'd be an incredibly interesting case study.

Frogs at a pond, how far would they really spread in range after being born there?

In general inbreeding isn't as big a deal for me as purposefully breeding for physical defects that cause the animal problems. I've been assured in this thread the scaless animals are fine so I'm cool with it. I would be kinda butt hurt if I had a random one pop out of a supposedly pure rat snake.

I know that the scaleless Texas Rats came in first, I find it hard to believe that the scaleless corn snakes don't have that blood in them.
