Exclamation Cross species breeding

I have heard of people breeding together kings, corns milks, black rats, bulls, other rats and a bunch of other colobrids. I have seen the outcomes of some like the jungle corn. But the other ones I don't even know if its possile. So I ask what snakes can you cross species breed and what will the outcomes, please give as much info as you can and be specific please. I know that may be alot to ack but I really want to know and can't find anything on the net. PLz

You probably won't find too many people willing to help you out since it's ethically wrong to crossbreed most species...and in some cases, illegal.

Good luck with your search.

I'm not trying to I just want to know how I dont even have those species I was just wondering because I heard about it. Why is it ethically wrong? I've heard discussion over jungle corns on this site many times their a rare breed worth alot of money.

..Nearly all, if not all, North American colubrids can be crossed fairly easy, Because the genetic makeup is very similar between them all. You may need to do some enticing but it's possible. The out comes will be different patterns, weaker bloodline of a species because of the new chromosomes/DNA patterns and that every known reptile hybrid to date has been shown to prove fertile after the cross...
It's ethically wrong because most people who breed hybrids do it for the money; Not even considering the fact it's a fad that is clearing true bloodlines. I mean, look at it like this.. You breed two dogs together of differ kinds and you'd nearly have to pay someone to take the litter. You breed two species of snakes together you get a price tag that at least doubles in price. This hobby is getting more and more about the dollar it's sad. Like for instance a green anole is a joke to many people because of the price tag on them.. I don't know about it being illegal but I hear in Ga. you can't have corns unless its a hybrid or color morphs..
I personally don't mind intergrades because it's natural but I don't care much for hybrids because it's a money scam..
Help any?

Yah, but I would still like to know some diffreints results and maybe see some pix I want to make my own special breed for my breeding project like I've seen on peoples site they have their own special. Like this one girl had a striped jungle corn, it had stripes going up and down that were like weird colors. Very strange but if Mine ended up so ugly no-one wanted them I would keep them. But I know of peoplem that would want them no-matter how ugly. But I would never even attempt this without seriosly researching things first a doing my best to make sure I didt end up with some mutant snake. But after what you guys say I might not ever I did't know anybody ever had a problem with it. I once heard of somen interbreeding like a jungle rattler or something with a eatern diamondback and ened up with some mutant super venomous evil snake that was't afraid like most and used its venom offensly instead of defensly don't know if its true but that would be horrible.

..There's millions of pics on the web of the offspring of hybrid results. Just do a google.com search.
As for the rattlesnake thing, heh I doubt that happened, not to mention that it's said hybrids are more timid.. So says..
But the main reason most people avoid breeding hots is the possible genetic mixups of the venom.. Getting bit and having an unknown venom may be a scary bit..

Yah i thought it was all just a badd movie script. An evil hyrid snake, LOL. That would be scary if someone did manage to make some kind of supervenomous snake that had a new unknown venom. What if it got to thw wild and bred. Think of the results of that.
