    What's the most you've ever spent or would spend on a single bp?

    With the prices of ball pythons ranging from $100s-$10k's, I'm curious what's the most you've ever spent or would spend on a single ball python.

    I just could never justify or bring myself to spend that much money on a snake - maybe $2k tops if it was something really hot. What about you?

    Re: What's the most you've ever spent or would spend on a single bp?

    right now i cant see myself spending more than $800 for a ball python, but im just a highschool student and i dont make much money...
    if i had the money, i might spend $2000 tops on a visual morph male and like you said, it would have to be a good lookin snake... but idk about females, but i am more drawn to producing my own morphs than buying one right now...

    I am spending nearly 2k on a big package right now. But for a single, depending how cool it is, maybe $5-10k if I had it.

    Re: What's the most you've ever spent or would spend on a single bp?

    I think the answer depends on a lot of things. If you're a big breeder and BPs are your business, investing 10K in an animal may not be such a big thing.


    If you're simply a hobbiest, 10K may be a little high (for some... for others, maybe not).

    It all depends on what you want and what you're willing to pay to get it. And that differs person to person.

    EDIT: With that said, I'd like to get to the point where I can spend 10-15K on a snake and not bat an eyelash.

    The most that I have ever spent so far on a single animal has been $600. I can see myself spending anything under 2k though. Thank god for those payment plans!

    $400 is the most I have spent so far on a single. Given I had the money, $5k would be my tops though.

    Depends. For a normal, maybe $100 tops. But in a few years I want to get a pied, so I'm totally willing to spend up to $3k or so for that.

    Re: What's the most you've ever spent or would spend on a single bp?

    I think the most expensive morph I'd buy is a male pied, otherwise I can breed hets or what not to get the higher end morphs or wait for them to come down in price

    I have spent 2500 on one but I'd say 5000.00 would be my top
