I disagree with the judgement that its a hybrid.... Its a little light in
colour, but that can be typical for female rosies. The only really
strange thing about it is just how rotund it is... Most likely, its some
sort of aberant form, possibly even having the balloon gene. I'm not sure
that its quite as ballooned as the picture makes it appear, and only the
one who took it can say for sure. :)
