    Yes, they're not the best "pets", that's for sure. No matter how pretty, if I'm keeping a snake, I want the ones I can relate to & handle. Otherwise, I might just
    as well have a poster on the wall, if all I can do is look. Impressive color variations for sure.

    I completly understand, me and my daughter volunteer at the dog/cat shelter every week, sometimes twice. I adopted all 4 of my dogs and one of my ball pythons. But Iím not against paying for something I really want either.

    Re: Amazing looking animals but 4k? Ouch.

    IMHO it's less about what someone is willing to pay and more about what the animal is worth to the person selling. The seller in question obviously takes a lot of pride in these animals, and feels they're worth the dollar amount. As a person respectful of the work that goes into producing living beauty, I'm not going to downplay this price, nor criticize it. I personally can't afford it, but that doesn't mean the price is too high.

    Problem with GTPs is you never know what the babies will look like. You can get a general idea and then pray and hope. Personally I dont know if i would drop $4k on an animal. With that said though, I dropped $1500 on my gilas without even blinking lol. So i guess it would depend on how much i wanted said animal
