    You are way better off buying hatchlings from reputable breeders and putting the time into growing them yourself.

    I payed 5 years ago for my male NT BHP $1000, this year I bought him 2 females for $700 the pair. I bred one of the females this season which makes my investment $1350 spent on a pair, she produced a small clutch of 5 eggs. but in previous years asproduced 10 eggs max. depending on condition of your animal and size will depend on size of clutch produced. what ever I get back from selling babies will go towards a bigger incubator or some hatchy racks.

    If you take a look at ahc and go to archive it shows average sale prices.

    I have just bought a breeding pair of Tanami Woma's :D the male looks awesome. the picture of the female didn't look so good because she was upside down. I'm hopefully picking them up today :D

    Thanks,

    Well I got them and they are awesome. The female is an uluru and the male is a male. She didn't produce any eggs this season but did last year. the female is a bit flighty but the male is so calm. I'm really looking forward to learning how to breed snakes but Womas especially. Hopefully they lay next year.

    Have you bred snakes before? I want to know how you incubated your eggs if you have?

    Thanks,
    NellyNake

    i'm sitting here looking at the price of roughies in Australia.....

    the first legal pair of roughies arrived in Europe roughly a year ago,when they go on to breed them, hatchlings will be put up for sale,they will cost thousands of pounds/euro's each

    oh to live in Australia 8)

    you guys have ALL the good stuff :D

    cheers shaun

    Worth is a relative term, if no one is willing to buy something it is worth nothing. Prices paid for any item is determined by availability, cost of production and what the market is prepared to pay. As more people breed expensive breeds the market becomes flooded and prices fall, you only have to look at the price drop in albino Darwins and GTP hatchlings over the past few years.

    Any idea where those roughies legally were imported from?
    Because it's still perfectly ILLEGAL to export our native fauna here...

    Possibly from America? I'm still having a look at the CITES listings to see if that was even legal..

    No i'm not housing them together. Because I want to breed, I think they won't breed as well if I house them together. But they do have the exact same terrain in the enclosure.
