    Never seen them that cheap, even recently, I'd be quite suspicious honestly.

    Its not a jag, it's an albino.
    280-500 depending on quality.

    I will have a few really unusual pattern tri-fluro albino Darwin hatchlings for sale soon after another couple of feeds, they are not cheap but some will be from $400. Not sure what you want but a lot of cheap albino "Darwins" are crosses and can be aggressive while pure well bred Darwins are usually very placid, certainly mine are. Photos of some of mine are in the Gallery.

    My albino was going double what I paid (250$) to the public, mates rates.

    You should always follow the rule; you get what you paid for. If you pay 200$ for an Albino from Evetyday John Doe , rather than the 450$ darwin from reputable breeder Mike, you get half the snake you could have , whether that means you’re paying for the feed expenses it cost etc,

    I'll have some Albino Darwins for sale very soon, I'm in Victoria but I'm not sure how much I'll be putting them up for yet. Let me know via PM if you're interested. :)

    There's even a pet store here in SA selling albino Darwin's for $295.


    I don't think paying more for an animal guarantees quality.
    There are plenty of people without a big reputation, selling at decent prices with nice animals.

    On the other side, a few years ago one of the biggest breeders on here at the time killed a few of my ex's gtp hatchies (they had a trade deal going) through general negligence and generally showed how dodgy he was. But he had one of the biggest and cleanest reps and charged top dollar.
    This was not "oh the weak die".
    This was some of them were absolute wrecks complete with split throats when he got them back.
    Yes you read that correctly, split throats.

    Yes every man and his dog are breeding them and you can be lucky and pick up bargains but unfortunately most albino Darwins look the same as hatchlings but when they are a couple of years old a well bred tri-fluro with a nice pattern makes most average albinos look very ordinary. You can't compare over 10 years of selective breeding based on very special selected animals with just putting a couple of very ordinary albinos of unproven pedigree and temperament together because you can. Past customers regularly send me photos and are amazed how attractive they are compared to their mates pet shop purchase. You are buying an animal that should live for 20 years and an extra $200 up front can make a big difference.

    That’s true they all look the same as hatchies so how do you truely know what you are buying? You could spend the extra money and still get an average albino as long as the buyer is happy with the purchase then who cares?

    Thats why you should consider buying from a well known breeder with a good reputation. The hatchlings future appearance can generally be predicted to be similar to previous seasons from the same parents. One of my current clutches is from a first time sire and while I have high expectations and will be keeping most of them to see how they turn out I advise any purchaser that I can't be sure how these will colour up.

    All my animals came from reputable breeders the albino was cheap because he had a change of circumstances. All I’m saying is not everyone cares and just wants an albino for example. cheap ones are out there. I know a well known breeder who is still struggling to sell last seasons hatchlings because the market is saturated.
