    How much would one typically expect to pay for a T+ children's python?

    I'm tossing up between a spotted python and an albino/T+ children's - there is about $300 difference in the price.

    I'm getting one from a local breeder in a few months for around $500 for a visual.

    So $450 would be a reasonable price for an animal that is visually a T+?

    Yes, but I've found that prices vary from state to state. (personal experience, not backed up by anything)

    $450 is a reasonable price for a T+, though I've seen breeders offer them at expos for $300. Whereabouts are you located? The Sydney Reptile Expo is on the 18th and you might want to go check it out and see if you can get a good deal.

    Located in Wagga - so about a 6hr drive from the expo

    I would pay more than $150 in petrol and tolls, not to mention having to find some place to stay. I would love to go but its not on the cards this year.

    I would do it if there was a specific animal I had to pick up etc - however not something I will do not knowing what I would find when I got there.
