    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to jglass38 again.

    Great post Jamie, hope it will help some people see the big picture, and all that is involve with breeding. It is not a decision to be made lightly.

    Re: Breeding Ball Pythons - Some things to consider...

    stickied! thanks for a great post jamie!

    these are things that are so often overlooked. i too think time may be one of the biggest things people don't realize they will have to provide and it's true that you can't just say, i don't feel like it today--i'll do it tomorrow. many great points here, that i hope everyone will consider before trying their hand at breeding!

    Re: Breeding Ball Pythons - Some things to consider...

    Great post, even if im only in it for my personal collection I like to think that people that do choose to breed look deeper than just the skin, and realize what all is involved to produce great snakes. Again awsome post.

    Re: Breeding Ball Pythons - Some things to consider...

    Great job! I see so many people buying multiple animals but don't have $ for a thermostat let alone Vet bills. This is not a cheap hobby and doing it correctly doesnt always come cheap. Taking in any living creature come with responsibility and becoming a breeder or just owning a few snakes should not be done on a whim. Breeding rodents is also a big undertaking and also needs to be done responsibly. Jamie you did an excellent job summing it all up.

    Also before deciding to start breeding make sure your spouse/significant other is totaly on board. There is a lot of alone time in the snake room, a lot of time with just you and the snakes...not to mention all the time it takes to take pics, update feeding cards, update websites/myspace and scour the forums...If your significant other doesn't share your passion it will be difficult. I speak from experience.
