    I'd spend money on a BEl before I would a pied. I also am not a fan of albinos. They tend to fade to much as adults from my experience and I hate a straight Easter yellow snake....just no appeal to me.

    I don't plan on getting into pieds, but I don't necessarily dislike them: they're just overdone. I guess if you want to make money, you go into pieds. I personally don't like any morph that looks eerily similar to a normal. I'd just get a normal! Unfortunately some do amazing things with other morphs, that's true.

    My biggest "HUH?" moment is when people see pied combos and think they are awesome, when half of the snake isn't even exhibiting those traits.

The same goes with yellowbellies. But i want an ivory and I like what they do when combined with other morphs. I do like pieds and albino's but that is just because when I was a young they were coming out in the market and they were the reason I got into snakes.

    Yeah, I remember when the Albinos and Pieds sparked the whole Ball craze. They both never did anything for me back when I was a teenager either, I just remember being amazed at the prices they were going for. I had written off Ball Pythons altogether for like a decade...until I saw a Super Cinny. The amount of genetic experimentation that Balls allow for is too appealing. I can't imagine not working with them now.

    Re: Pieds...ASTOUNDINGLY overrated.

    Heh,

    It would be a boring hobby if we all liked the same things.

    Some of the most genetically usefull and highest priced BP's in the world look to me as though they have some form of hideous skin disease.

    But some combo's will surprise you.

    If you do not like the "white factor" of pieds look at the enchi pieds - and if you have seen some of the pics of an enchi albino ( I'm not a plain regular albino fan really ) with all the colour and flames I'm willing to bet I would go doolally over a super enchi albino pied.

    Half?

    With the exception of Pastel Pieds, (which still look like vomit, only brighter) it seems to me that every combo they produce is 99% white with only the head as the smudge that gives away what other genes got wasted by breeding them to Nature's bleach stain.

    I am not a fan of Pied's, albinos, or coral. Does not mean i hate them by no means.

    Now as for the Panda Pied, That is the only pied i would not mind having.

    So I take it you won't be getting into the Albino Pied project anytime soon . J/K

    I love the high contrast of pieds, the mix of dark against white. Just kinda my thing . I do like Albinos but they aren't my favorite (don't tell that to my Albino male, lol). When ever I show non-snake people my collection they do always ooh and aah at our albino and pied. The other, more subtle morphs get a "oh thats neat" or they just don't get it. As far as I'm concerned as long as pieds and albinos draw in attention (in a good way) to our hobby and get non-snake people interested in snakes then I'm happy. I wouldn't care WHAT morph they were drawn to. Some times a scaredy cat will actually pet or HOLD our pied then my job is done .

    I like pieds and albinos I think I love all ball pythons because they r ball pythons lol but I don't really favor the spider ball python its beautiful and all but I don't favor the wobble they carry that's just my opinion and any morph that has spider in it I don't favor because of the wobble I would never buy one for my collection but they are very beautiful that's my two cents lol

    I cannot understand how people that LOATHE snakes will say "Ooh, I like that one!" when they see one of these magical Clorox Balls. I don't get why they're the most coveted snake in the world, when the gene by itself looks like a Ball Python that got puked on, and the combos all look EXACTLY the same with a different colored headspot. I basically ignore anything that is Pied related because I know I'll just once again be befuddled at their ridiculous popularity. And just as a disclaimer, no I'm not hating because I secretly want one so bad. I'm hating because they're butt-ugly. I will never let one of those little defective mutants anywhere near my collection.

    Just sayin'.
    You've been making the same post for years.... why keep bringing it up?
