    Hi guys,

    I saw these 2 hybrid from exotica and was interested to know what 2 parents made up of Black Dragon and the Sabre? If anybody have the info please let me know. And also the x Marbled Dragon, this hybrid is also nice too, but exotica doesn't post the parents.
    We can go for days without food, but we can't pass 5 minutes without air. REMEMBER TO BREATH!!!

    Trouble breathing? Let me know.

    Sorry, its a trade secret. My best guesses, (so far), Sabre looks like it could be a [(maxima x thorelii) x trusmadiensis] hybrid. Black Dragon could be izumiae x truncata. Marbled Dragon is maxima-dark x truncata. What about Red Dragon which could be thorelii x truncata?

    I like that X "black dragon". I just ordered one from cooks. Does anyone know anything about it? Is it the izumiae x truncata?

    See now that is messed up. What about the folks that breed with these things. It would be nice to know the parent that make it up. Thats why there needs to be a registry with the hybrids in it so you can register it. Heck there can even have patents on hybrids too. There is others ways to protect the hybrid other than secrecy.

    i always thought Sabre looked like it had some ventricosa in it. Red Dragon is not thorelii x truncata though, I have one of those, and the coloration is VERY differnent (mottled instead of solid red), and the peristome doesnt "pinch" in the middle like Red Dragon does

    I actually posted about this on CPUK just yesterday. Someone told me to email Geoff, so I did, and got a reply today:

    guess we'll never know for sure....
