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

    Here in europe the prices are a bit higher. I've spend about 1200 dollar on my spider and 1400 on my het. pieds. Tis year I'll try to buy a 06 pin female. It will cost over 2000...

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

    If I had the money... I would buy whatever made me happy..

    (whether it be a cherry red lamborghini, or a hot pied..)

    BUT....


    that doesn't look very feasable at the moment..


    But one day, when I finish med school, and I'm a famous surgeon... I'll have my lamborghini and hot snakes..

    I can't see myself spending more than 5k on a ball, now if a one of a kind boa was offered that I wanted, I would gladly come up with that money

    Too many boas to list and a few balls as well

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

    i spent $800 on my lesser. Once im at the daytona expo this year im planning on droping $4000 on a bunch of balls( lots of normals but only $1000 maybe $2000 on a single morph)

    I could see myself spending alot on alot of snakes, but never one. the ones that cost 10k are not attractive to me and that would by my tops

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

    My frist visible morph was less than 500.00... my hets hypos... the same.

    But the more I look at my long term projects, most of which involve at least one co-dom (super forms included), combined with at least one recessive (on occasion two). I realize that I have to start actually breaking down and buying female morphs, as well as codoms, het for recessive.

    Right now my next preferred combo is an 06 female - codom het for recessive - 1500-1750.

    Hopefully as I generate a bit of revenue from my snakes this season (knocking on everything remotely looking like wood!) then I can trade for a few of the more visible hets that I like (YBs,etc). All the ingredient snakes that are sexy version of the normals.

    Those have appealed to me from day one.

    Also for future projects... I think I need to start with 1 full morph and one het, vs. 2 hets. If for no other reason than to ensure my offspring have a 100% genetics, and can be raised up, traded, or sold based on that certainty.

    That being said... I saw a pair of het toffees for 15.000... and have to say... if I had the money. *looks skyward for windfall*... then I would add them in a second.

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

    As of right now, I do not think I could feasibly spend more than $500 to $1000 (and on the low range of that) on any single Ball Python, being a student and all. Food, Housing, school, and care of any existing pets all has to come first before investment into morphs.

    Now, if I happened to win the lottery, who knows? But as a hobbyist and not a breeder, I do not know if I would make any large investments (10K plus).
