    I can vouch for Tim Koppenhoffer and Special K reptiles, he and his wife run a tight show and care about their animals A LOT! The other ones on the list i'm not too familiar with and my other breeder friends aren't attending as no one really has that many hatchlings to sell, its mostly random breeders and snakes that didn't fit into their plan. Or you get lucky and find someone whos breeding year round and had a good few clutches in the last months.

    Will back him up. We attended the all ohio reptile show. We picked up a bp from them. Tim and Susan do care about their animals and put up nice displays.

    If you would like the phone numbers just send me a pm ill give u them off their business card that i picked up.

    Also

    Tim = Breeder/feeder
    Susan = Marketing person

    Atleast thats how she explained it to me He does the taking care of the animals for the most part she helps sell em

    Haha dude don't think you'll find a GOOD Quality one for that. NO respectable breeder would sell an albino for $200 unless it was a quantity deal. Males run $300-350 all day long at shows. Heck i just traded mine for $500 worth of Female Pinstripe!

    Good health is part of good quality. $350 is already a "cheap" price for albino's. I'm just floored people expect them to be any less. They shouldn't be below $1000 in my opinion - none of the recessives should be.

    Let's put it this way, I went to a show in December and was also shopping for an albino. The night before I was talking to a breeder about one that I really liked. He quoted me a price and encouraged me to go to the show to make sure that I didn't see something I liked better.

    I found another albino at the show with the same "look" that I wanted (I prefer no alien heads - reduced pattern only), for $100 less than he quoted me.

    I walked out of the show WITHOUT the snake, because it was on a jobber's table (flipper) who couldn't tell me a thing about the history of the snake, who probably got the animal in trade from a previous show. No telling what sort of illnesses and mites that animal could have been exposed to. With jobbers, it's about flipping the animal as quickly as possible. It's quality that you "can't" see.

    I called the breeder and told him I would be thrilled to buy his animal at the price he was asking. And I couldn't be happier with my decision.

    Have fun at the show, but buy animals with caution. If you don't know what you're looking for or how to determine quality - try to hook up with other forum members here that are going who you can ask their opinion.
