    Looking back at my records I'm about $4,200 into 34 snakes plus $500 for shipping. Most of my snakes are corns and sub $100. If I had to replace them all at full market value it would be about $6k-$7k. I've gotten a bunch of end of show deals, some the value of the snake has increased, some I got for free as pet only because of kinks, I've also gotten a breeding pair of corns for $20. That total is just for the purchase of the snakes and not the extra cost of caging, heat, thermostats, hides, bedding..etc. I have no clue how much my wife has tied up into her crested and gargoyle geckos.

    Re: What is the market value of all of your snakes?

    Actual market value vs what I paid? Lets do market value. Going to count Aurora even though still paying on her.

    Most expensive $2000.

    Total value would be around $5000 of all added together. With rainbow being almost an adult she is worth more than a baby would be. Estimate 1000 to 1200 for her. (slightly prejudice there.)

    $30 for my perfect wild type! Y'all can close the thread now, I'm sure my break-the-bank-snake is blowing minds right now..... bahaha!

    (I paid $35 for her, but after countless hours of combing through Morph Market, I think a normal on average goes for about $30, if not cheaper)

    $3800 on 9 snakes, value when I bought them, that's heavily skewed to two snakes though. Most of mine were in the $150-300 range.

    Looking at a locality boa for the coming year.
    That will probably be in the $3-5 hundred range.

    Priceless

    I won't give a overall number but let's just say I spend between $1000 to $3000 on new animals every year (not counting the value of my holdbacks), for example this years holdbacks value (fair market price) is $7400

    And I am a small scale breeder.

    And I am curious what snake you got for $1450. Heck, i thought Alex was spendy at close to $1000 and the prices I've been seeing Peruvian BCC at around $1000 also. Only thing i can think of for $1500+ other than designer GTPs which are just crazy at $5000+ or an Amazon Basin ETB is a BHP at around $2000.

    DING, DING, DING, we have a winner! 67temp, step on down!

    Yes, Solana, was $1,450. She is the first Scaleless Sunglow Motley Corn with Visual Red Factor in the World. She's also about the coolest corn snake I've had, or met. Great personality on top of stunning looks.

    Katie's Bayonaisse Leachie, Esmeralda, was $1,800 (expo price). She's awesome and that seemed like a good deal given how much the GT's cost!

    Let's see... current combined total based on what I payed for my snakes... 1,650

    Current market value? Prolly 1,200 and falling. Lol

    I have a ton of other reptiles as well, so with all those my total would be at least a thousand more.

    Re: What is the market value of all of your snakes?

    Based on the market value my three holdbacks from this year are worth in excess of $7500. I'm just a hobby breeder myself
