Thread: Aussie Python Prices
Aussie Python Prices
Hi guys, I'm noticing a lot of newbies asking how much various breeds of snakes cost. Just wondering if there are any threads or Wiki pages that list average prices of all species of Aussie pythons? If not, could we make one? As a n00b myself I think I'd find a list of prices of classic pythons, hypos and other variations like reduced pattern, albino, axanthic etc, and even popular colubrids, helpful.
EDIT - covered below
I recently paid above average cost for a python purely because i trusted the reputation of the breeder. I knew elsewhere that i could have got the same breed, $100 cheaper. I think looking at average costs can be dangerous for an owner, as it takes the focus off the animal itself.
As long as you know the general ballpark figure, any buyer should be able to operate around that at their discretion.

There are many other pythons available but these are the basics. This is just a rough guide of prices; the high end price is due to locality, colours, and patterns. Morph’s can fetch much higher prices than most other pythons and I have not priced them here as morph prices usually go into the thousands, morph’s are pythons like the albino, or have different markings than normal.
found it on wiki
it all depends on the individual and what they are willing to pay...
also depends on the age of the snake and a variety of other differences.
in the end anything is only worth what you are willing to pay.ALWAYS Judge A Person By The Way They Treat Someone
Who Can Be Of NO Possible Use To Them!
this was discussed a while ago, but most would agree that its is very hard to get an average price list cause of the variation or price amongst quality, breeders, morphs, localities etc. at the end of the day people should be doing the research, find the animal they are after and take it from there.
the only time animals fetch a common price is by-the-kilo..... there are too many variables with these animals, pattern, colour, even temperament can influence price.....Silence is Golden, but Duct tape is Silver..

research everything before you buy! Impulse buy and your bound to get stung, google is your friend and knows nore than i could tell you.IMAGINE...Go on, you know you want to...
Of course prices vary between individuals due to colouration, patterning, size/age, temperament, and I'm not interested in making a price list to prevent people from being 'ripped off' or anything. I just think it would be a good resource for people who are considering getting a certain type of snake to have a vague idea of what they're in for. Also it would be great to have a basic price range for the less common varieties, say axanthic BHPs for instance, that don't come up for sale very often and are hard to find prices for online.
