    Banana Ball question....

    I'm looking into getting a Banana Ball, and I was wondering do they typically have some black spots in their pattern? Saw one thats going for a little over 200$ and wanted to know whats a decent price for a Banana?

    Yes, as they age they develop spots. Some more than others.

    They start to develop speckle around 125/150 grams, amount of speckling is random and some will have more spots than others.

    They start at $130 on Morphmarket. If the breeder is a famous Youtuber, then it probably will be over $200 for a banana morph.

    Yeah, I've seen Banana BP for $350 at Petsmart. That's a big markup... for a snake that you won't know the hatch date or who the breeder was.

    Brother, if I was you, I wouldn't buy from a local store ( I would buy from a local breeder though). Find a reputable breeder on Morphmarket, pay the $50 shipping and you will end up with a good ball python.

    Sadly that's where I've gotten all of mine lol, but I can tell you this all my animals are in perfect condition and happy...minus my Pastel....I saw how aggressive he was and knew something was wrong and I wanted to get him away from that....he finally struck me last night and broke skin...but I didn't flinch or anything I just looked at him and knew he was mishandled when he was at pets mart....it's going to take time to help him realize I'm not his enemy but after he struck me I just carefully placed him in his new tank and just waited for him to slither off and explore....he needed more room and I know that the associates there didn't know wtf they were doing....
