    Well I'm just going to save you some time but burst your bubble. Take all those prices and lower them by 20-45% because by the time you even have any of those babies, prices will have dropped significantly. I understand they are in Canadian, but more and more people produce Ball Pythons every year and plenty of people can't even sell them cause the market is flooded with pastels, Spiders, and Mojaves.

    Breeding Ball Pythons is by no means a good lucrative business unless you produce numbers like BHB, Ralph Davis, or spend $30,000 on brand new morphs just imported.

    I'm not trying to make ball python breeding my main source of income, but an opportunity to purchase 41 ball pythons came up, and I'm having a hard time with passing this by. If all goes well, I will have babies next year. I'm just trying to convince my step mother that she will get repaid for the amount she helps me.
    She plays in the stock markets, that's what she's all about.

    Well unless the person is also giving you all the racks, thermostats, tubs, heating elements, incubators, rat racks, rat breeding colonies, rat food, bedding along with the snakes, you will probably not break even, heck you'll in in the hole a few thousand for a while before you start producing babies. Then you will have to have people lined up to sell your babies to.

    Keep in mind only a few shipping companies will let you ship live animals, even then NONE OF THEM offer insurance. Also the market is growing, but so are people doing exactly what your doing.

    I don't want to be a downer, but I've seen this happen way too much, people get in over their head and realize it's not a good way to make any money. 95% of people never even break even on their snakes when they thought they could make thousands.

    Yes, the seller is giving me all the racks, incubators, thermostats, and heating elements. I have a good friend that breeds rats, ASF's and mice, and the seller lives in the next town from me.

    Don't worry about lecturing me on these details. I'm just looking for prices to know my possibilities.

    I agree, you can make money breeding ball pythons, but you better have this well planned out. Breeding them isn't hard, but you better know what you're doing if this is an investment. your stepmother must know a little about investing, she's not jumping in quickly with her money.

    I have yet to ask her. I'm trying to make sure I work out all the details first, and I'm giving her a typed proposal.

    I want this done right. I already even have a garbage bag full of vermiculite waiting for eggs.

    Before you decide on seriously breeding Ball Pythons I would suggest reading this artical. http://ballpythonbreeder.com/2010/04...thon-breeding/ And going through the spreadsheet.

    There is either something wrong with that page, or my internet is faulty, but it's just a black page...
