There could be a demand for brown tree snakes in WA soon. Mainly night tigers. That's if it gets added to the list."Curiosity killed the cat, but for a while I was a suspect "
Absolutly thers money In breeding snakes though not just your common pythons you would need to breed say something like pardox albino darwins GTP something like that It is very exspensive to set up though high end snakes cost thousands each even as hatchies you may call these snake breeders and find out the requirments they need for an employee would be good exsperience for you
Gtp are coming down in price quickly it's expensive to buy adults if you do get hatchlings you can't sex until 12months old and by the time they breed the will be worth under $500 ea as for paradox darwins the don't throw paradoxes every clutch and numbers are low even when they do. Buying two paradox albino hatchlings and breeding them together doesn't mean they will produce paradox hatchlings. Also they are a new morph not understood, over priced, people who already breed them can't get rid of them and are only selling females. You should get a good high paying job and have snakes as a hobby and if you do want to breed have 1 or 2 projects so you can keep back most of the young to breed back and have fun!!! Breeding reptiles is not a get rich quick idea many have tried and all have failed
Effectively, you're gambling by investing in an asett that depreciates exponentially on the possibility of you making enough profit to keep up with the deflation. Could you do it? sure, though as much as I respect people who go into the commercial breeding business, I'm sure they do it for some other reason than the money. If you have the money to drop on a breeding trio of the hot new morph, I'd suspect it would be far more profitable to put a down payment on a rental property. If you don't have the money to drop on a breeding trio of the hot new morph, you're in for a long, painful road ahead of you.
If they opened Australia up to the world market we could all make a good living from it.
Yes because it's going to be a huge market for oenpelli pythons.... Jumping the gun I think, havent been caught or breed yet plus how many people can house a scrubby? Not many they will be in the same boat.

You've gotta find something rare that there is a market for like GTPs but everyone has the same idea four years ago they were nearly ten g's and nowadays I know a bloke that brought one for $600. Work ya full time job and do it on the side Side it stays a hobby and a passion and doesn't become a 'job'
