    Okay so I've never owned a snake before but I'm very interested in the children's pythons because I've heard that they are a great first snake. I did some research online and went to a pet store and the guy showed me a 3.5 month old 'children's ghost python', she was lovely but she didn't seem to look like the pictures i have seen on some sites. I'm defiantly no expert on children's morphs (or snakes for that matter) but if he is going to charge me $395 for her i want to be sure i know what I'm getting. Also is it better to buy a young hatchling or one thats a bit older ?
    Please help me out! :)

    Personally I wouldn't pay $395 for it.

    where is this? I don't care about others but that is a beautiful snake and I'm prepared to part with $395 for it!

    Its worth $400 but you can get a standard one for a lot less. Its up to you and what you want.

    That's why I said "I personally." It just doesn't stand out to me...

    It's a lovely snake, but you could pick up any number of pretty childrens, spotted or stimmies for a better price if you shop around.

    In my opinion it is a Stimsons but it is also a really nice looking snake that I would pay the $$$ for.
