    Here is a pic of my little albino ball that I picked up over the weekend. He is an albino that is possible het for snow. He was purchased from Cory at Bradford Cole Herp Inc.
    Enjoy,
    Jason

    Hey thanks for the kind words. I have yet to name him, I'm horrible at finding names that I really like so it may take a while. For now is just my little baby

    Almost forgot to add, I too was someone who could not afford the snakes I wanted, but I started saving all my extra money and invested in just a few to get started. I bought a Pastel Jungle and about 5 normal females. Last year was my first breeding year with Ball Pythons and I produced two clutches from normalxpastel breedings. I produced 5 Pastels, sold a pair, and traded the others and some cash for my albino. Now what I am trying to get at is, if you stay focused, and work at it, your "pets" can make you enough money to afford the pets you want. I am once again breeding my Pastel along with other morphs I have aquired in hopes of buying a pied next year with the money. It is possible. I am by no means giong to make a living on my small collection (50 Ball Pythons), but if it pays for the next morph I want, thats all I can ask. Sorry for the rant, just wanted to let you know it is pretty simple and relatively cheap to start a nice breeding group.

    i couldn't breed for money. i dont like to think of snakes as cash, but as indivuduals. not saying you don't care about your animals, i'm just more comfortable dividing my attention between a couple of snakes as opposed to as many as you have.

    Currently Keeping - 4 ball pythons, a redtail boa, and a cali king. Now look, admit it. You know you want to give me an albino ball python.

    This is what I was trying to explain. Everyone seems to think if you breed morphs that you do it for money. As I said I am breeding morphs so I can afford the morphs I want. I am not making a living off of snakes, and they are not paying the bills, but I can buy the next morph with each years offspring as well as supply the customer with quality captive bred animals, so hopefully import numbers will come down. I understand what your saying, and I did own snakes for a good 8-10 years before breeding, but it gets expensive putting money into something that nevers gives you any in return. I guess I am just too business minded.

    Are 100% hets proven? Thats how that works, correct?

    With 50% pairs I could produce albinos in a couple years. But by then I fear I won't be able to sell them, or they will be worthless.

    Thanx

    must... not... covet....

    I like the looks of the albinos and the piebalds, but I think it will be a long time before I can afford either. I may watch for a nice deal on a young female normal when we go up to the reptile show in Phoenix in a few weeks.
