I was in the market for a pied a couple years ago and they were usually about $1000 for females, and nowadays a het female will run you about $300 if you want to start cheap and breed your own. Bigger breeders like BHB and Mike Wilbanks etc can provide a good gauge of morph price.
Male and female axanthics tend to me ~$300 and $500 respectively. I can’t speak for coral glows because I’ve never really checked that morph out!
Thinking of breeding some lightnings? :P
- is the snake you’re buying raised on live, frozen, or pre-killed rats/mice? if live, is that because they have refused pre-killed or frozen in the past? ask for a live feeding if you’re picking up the snake in person.
- if an adult snake, particularly female, ask about their breeding history and about the health/success of said clutches
- ask about details of its genetic make-up (if relevant). for example, if the snake is listed as a “possible” for a recessive gene, ask about what percentages you’re talking, the genetics of the parents, any heterozygous traits you’re paying for, etc.
- if buying a very young snake, ask about their return policy should the gender be wrong. even experienced breeders may misgender a young snake.
Primarily you want to be able to ensure your snake is healthy, eating well, and that you receive the genotype that you paid for.
LOL. yeah I you could if you wanted. Just don’t hurt it I guess hahaha
Haha! Rodents. Primarily mice and rats. Wild ball pythons in Africa will also sometimes eat birds.
