This is a very unlikely cross.  Since the two are sympatric it would have to
be done by hand if it could even be done at all and I sincerely doubt the
eggs would be fertile if it got that far.  Even if it got to the point of
fertile eggs there is still so much that can go wrong (genetically
speaking).  There is certainly no harm in trying (never say never) but I
would not expect it to work.  It sure would be an odd looking critter if it
did though!
