I am, personally, torn over this question. I believe that "we" should not mess with nature but there are many points that could be made in defense of Selective breeding...True most genetic anomalies such as amelanistic/albino reptiles do not survive in the wild. The albino would be picked off soon after birth, natural selection being what it is and all..but in most cases the "normal" creature is in grave danger at this time also, from "man-made" enviormental threats...So, it could be one of those,"lesser of two evils" type of answer.......also...on an economic side....the selling of morphs is more lucrative than selling of normal animals....who knows?
