    It seems that the bottom has fallen out of the market , every naturally occurring snake is basically free to good home ?
    The only snakes that are worth more than the food they eat are chondros and some jaguars.
    Even standard albino darwins wont be worth anything by next season .
    what will be the next big thing?

    I'm hoping the next big thing would be keeping reptiles due to an intrinsic interest in them and not their monetary value...

    Theres still some 'expensive' animals around, and I don't think the market is that bad for some quality 'wild type' animals.

    I've been breeding Ryde locale herps for years! Not MDs though.

    Lizards? Perhaps even ones without legs

    Albinos aren't quite ready yet but I have a ghost python for sale, but it's a bit
    hard to take a photo, them being ghosts and all.
    What about piebald coastals?

    Start breeding brown tree snakes (especially night tigers) so when WA put them on the keepers list you can off load them for $$$

    Everything is going into quality designer morphs. And if money is the key that's where it is I'm by no means a money hungry person and love all species I'm glad the price in most have droped.
