    Question Regarding a Paradox(?) Baby

    I recently produced my very first clutch, pairing a single-gene Mojave to a Champagne Butter Pastel, hoping for some BEL babies.

    What I got instead, was this guy! (I haven't sexed them yet, I'm waiting until after they shed.)



    Since posting a picture of them, I've gotten a lot of inquiries about whether I'm going to sell them or not (I haven't decided, want to get them established first).

    My problem is, if I do decide to sell them... I have no idea what this might be worth! Is anyone more experienced able to give a rough estimate?

    (I apologize if I'm in the wrong section!)

    The paradox are worth what ever someone is willing to pay. Geneticly it's worth less than a bel but people will pay for uniqueness. If it we're mine I'd put a $1200 tag on it and accept $900 or so

    Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired.

    I agree with this, it is not a genetic powerhouse, but it is definitely a one of a kind snake that will never be reproduced. Uniqueness is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. I honestly am fascinated with how the paradox works. That almost looks as if its part BEL and part Lesser.

    Re: Question Regarding a Paradox(?) Baby

    I agree with what's already been said... and just wanted to say that is a beauty of a baby.

    I would be willing to pay more for a snake like that as a pet/display animal, but that's to my tastes. Someone out there will be willing to pay for it, I'm sure. If people are already asking... I'd price it however much YOU think it's worth.

    Re: Question Regarding a Paradox(?) Baby

    That's a fantastic looking snake! Are those ringers (ie, champagne) or just part of the paradox?
