What if MM g. Pulchra and MF g. Pulchripes cross breeds? What do you call the slings?
This could still lead to the possibility of being introduced into the hobby and being sold under different names, namely the parent sp., which could still lead to polluting the pure bloodlines. Not worth the risk.
Even if they are initially labeled as hybrids, there is no guarantee that all subsequent owners will do the same, that the hybrids won't also be bred, or that any second-generation hybrids will all be labeled correctly.
I agree with @Ungoliant .. People are not to trust. Some don't care if they mess up the genetics of the future tarantulas, as long there are cool colorful hybrids they wish to sell for large sums of money.. Which to me is ridiculous. Why pay more for a hybrid? Pure species are much more valuable..
The babies will reach adulthood and are capable to reproduce. Sterile not true it's been proven.Cross breeding surely happens to some extent, but as far as I know the offsprings are sterile. Also, different sp. of Ts generally live in different parts.. Pulchra being native to Uruguay and Brazil, whereas pulchripes resides in Paraguay and Argentina.
