Hey everyone,

I wanted to get a few different opinions on whether you guys think these babies are pure bred or hybrids. I'm not sure who the dad is, I've attached a picture of two different males that I think could possibly be the dad. Let me know what you guys think. I'm also attaching a picture of the mom and the babies.

I'm not the Rift expert you want but the kids look pure to me.
What are you saying is the hybrid? Also what is an upside down cat?

He's making a joke ... since the pictures display upside down.

They look pure to me as well.

Hahaha! That's a good one! Yeah I don't know why they came in upside down but if you click on them they should be right side up! So which dad do you guys think is the real dad?

The problem is that juveniles of Auratus and Chipokae have the same basic pattern, so it is hard to know if they are a mix. If the duller male is the parent, they would definitely be hybrids.

That dominant male almost seems too attractive to be pure Auratus, but maybe he is just a very nice specimen.
