Hybridization, probably have some blood boiling already. Not exactly the point of the post. I'm only curious because some of my personal favorite fish are hybrid. Valentina synodontis (still argued if it's a hybrid or not) and flowerhorn cichlids are some of my favorite fish. Those seem to be excepted if not tolerated by most. The obvious guppies and various other small fish including shrimp are pretty regularly hybrized. But if the subject of say Cory cats is brought up. Seems to be a very harsh backlash of condemnation. The arguments don't seem to have much behind them. Tend to be more of a moral issue. Lots of "that doesn't happen in nature" type of talk. Now I'm not promoting hydrides or actively trying to create them. I'm just curious why for some fish there seems to be a more laid back attitude about it and some specie's it seems to be a more aggressive disagreeing. I do know that where I live hydrides are happening right now. And it's 100% nature. Polar bear have been moving inland and breeding with grizzlies. The call them groler bears or pizzlies. Spelling could be off lol. But they're are reports here in Alaska of people shooting second and third generation groler bear. Due to global warming and the lack of sea ice. Polar bears are finding a way to survive. If people are truly now finding second and third generations of this animal. It is becoming a new specie's right before our eyes. Politics aside as far as global warming goes. I grew up in Alaska living here for 25 years. Then moved away for about 10+ years. Returning home to an unquestionably warmer Alaska. Trees I never seen growing up are how becoming common. Sooooo many new bugs seem to be showing up. This summer breaking records for heat hitting 90+ where I live. Totally out of the normal for my area. Anyway I have a feeling over the next 20+ years we will see a lot of things change. A lot of things we wouldn't have ever experienced due to climate changes and animals reacting. This is probably why it sparked my attention. I guess seeing so many "it's not nature" type responses to old posts where people asked about hybrized animals. I just think nature may be showing us that not only is it natural. It's an absolutely necessary function for the continued genetics. As in the choice could be extinction or hydridize.
