Western hogs and Eastern hogs...........

are they genetically compatible? Will they readily breed with one another and produce live viable offspring? Please forgive my ignorance, but I want to get into this species and know little about them.

They will not produce offspring, as far as I know none of the hogs interbreed.

Congrats on become interested in these great little snakes. I was heavily into ball pythons, but hogs (along with select leo projects) have completely become my interest. Hogs rule man.

Also... as a "newbie" in this "species" I'd recommend staying away from easterns. They tend to be difficult to keep.

Thanks Ross.
I also only see the Lucies and albinos in the westerns as well. That's where I'd like my projects to go towards. Higher end Hogs seem to be what ppl want.

We know the gene is out there, it will pop back up eventually. Some lucky kid breeding a couple of "normal" westerns is going to hatch out a white baby one of these days. Not too mention all of the other morphs that have still not been discovered, hell look at cornsnakes, we've got a long way to catch up.

It doesn't matter if a lucie pops up again they can still claim it is origanally from the colorado blood line and take it unless they have proof that it was from an area that you can still legally take them from the wild. Even with proof you are going to probably have a very hard time conviencing them that it isn't from the colorado line. The guy that origanally produced the lucie messed it up for all of us.
