Not having done the long term experiment, I'd like to hear thoughts on this, maybe from someone who has and can say for sure. Or somebody else's theorizing at least, lol. They should adapt even if they are somewhat inbred, because epigenetics or something, right, right? Or if you've got a strong argument that they don't, well that's fine too.
