Interbreeding Is it possible?

IN a word; yes. Long before we had this discussion, actually years ago, I held that perhaps these variotypes of S. spilopleura, S. rhombeus etc., might be the result of interbreeding. When I first presented to a scientist in DNA research, he disagreed because of the idea that it was physically impossible. With the newer information surfacing on DNA pertaining to S. spilopleura (2002) this type of thinking of piranas not interbreeding is heading out the door.

Just thought I would share.

Lets not get ahead of ourselves, these are results from DNA and still in infancy of discovery. So far in limited localities that seems to be the appearance. Until more samples are obtained its still an hypothesis, though an interesting one. :cry:

Interesting...and it would explain quite a bit with some of the fish popping up with the characteristics of a 2 different species.  :laugh:
Thanks Frank  :nod:

I plan to add that to each species that has been sequenced. As I explained to another person telephonically, species taxon names are all but arbitrary if one goes by this process alone.
