Hi all, I am wanting to get into breeding next season as my snakes will be old enough and I have questions. I have been doing some research on breeding and what all I will need, but any tips or tricks of the trade will be greatly appreciated!!
-I know the spider gene comes with problems, are there any other genes I should look out for/be aware of?
-How do I know I am accurately identifying the morphs of my animals? (I want to make sure I am giving people what I say I am)
-How do I price my animal based on morph?
-Do breeders often inbreed their animals? Like if two morphs come out of the same cluth that they want to cross, do they hold them back until they are old enough to breed? Same for if they want to breed a hatchling to one of the parents when it comes of age? Does it have any negative effects on the anima/is it common? (I only ask because google says it is common and I want to have all my facts straight)
-Do I have to have any sort of license to breed/ship ball pythons?
Thank you all so much in advance, I am glad to have the opporunity to ask these questions in this community and hopefully become a part of it!
