Like most of us, I love morphs and cant get enough info. I constantly watch youtube video’s craving as much knowledge and info as possible . I own a variety of morphs and normals. My snakes are simply pets.
Here is my question and observation. I could be completely wrong but would love some feedback and opinion.
I would think the typical pet trade BP would be in price range of $60 to around $2500. I use these numbers from other keepers I know as well as the price range of other animals (Dogs, Birds, etc)
Obviously there are always exceptions and income differences that are wildly varied. So, what I may see as expensive is pocket change for someone else.
The big money BP’s I see on line seem to go to breeders for upcoming projects and whatnot.
So,are the high end morphs typically being produced by breeders for breeders? That what it looks like to me anyway. If so, it’s not a bad business model if you can stay ahead of it.
It just blows my mind to see some 8 gene (or more) animal selling for an excess of 10K. I wonder who buys them. Then the next thing I see, one of the many higher profile youtube breeder are unboxing another one in a typical “unboxing a 30K ball python, WOW!” style video.
I have no issues with this whatsoever! I was just curious what others think? Am I correct of way off base?
