    Every time I sell something nice I regret it and it happens all the time.
    Unfortunately when you breed snakes you can't keep them all but I hate it when people who bought them send you a pic later of a stunning animal that you wish you kept.

    This little beauty is off to Cairns tomorrow.

    I'm already dreading having to sell some of my babies, i get attached to them quite easily.

    I’m scared of when my new bredli breed because they come from the best lines in aus

    And I’ve seen their previous babies and they are RED and gorgeous

    I might just keep a couple dozen

    I don't breed pythons "yet" but my last clutch of Central beardies had a white hypo leatherback and I'm like do I keep him or sell him?
    I ended up letting him go and keeping an orange Leatherback het hypo,het trans who looks like her grandmother. WT ???
    Once again you can't keep them all

    Mother is a het with high fluro and lots of complex colours, father is an albino from a mating of a tricolour male albino with another colourful het.

    Just keep them till they hit a year old and then sell and keep back what you want?

    I do but you can only keep so many and with albino Darwins a lot of the subtle colours and fluro don't show till 18mths plus.
