    Now some guys saying these are hybrid THH/THB. This isn't the case is it?

    Have no fear, those are certainly not hybrids. They’re Thb without a doubt however, there is no way at all to be sure they’re Bulgarian. There is no distinct phenotype for Bulgarian animals as is the case with almost any Thb. Even in Macedonia, they can be dark, light, big or smaller. When it comes to localities for Thb, things are much different than they are for T. h. hermanni because the variation in Thb is far more extreme than it will ever be for Thh.
