Xerophak. I am with you and this one. Although the striped looks very unusual I am very content with the natural looking ones as nature intended it to be.

As ive been reading on the forums, armata has found striped Gabby's in the wild before. So it would be natural..

I have seen quite a few pictures of wild snakes that have unusual colouring etc.

in this case, he is not thus natural, he is anybody man who to play with the mother nature.

I am to fabor of controlled hybrids!!, for example. but that control is impossible, the control is difficult,. better not hybrids practice!!.

I do not practice nor hare.
the vipers of nowadays are beautiful in case single, it is not necessary helps human.
it disappears when they raise much amount.

Mongoose , they are natural accidents
to the equal one with the people "striped"

Yes the wild striped gaboons were from a small area in the Mtwara region of Tanzania, but not as pronounced as we have seen with these captive ones.

I agree of course with David (xerophak) as nature intended. BTW David don't ever improve your English its a joy and we all understand you perfectly.
Thanks for the pics also.
