It’s important to note that the market did actually crash for leopard geckos in the early 2000s. However, this market crash didn’t really impact people who were in it for the long haul and already established themselves. It did impact small hobbyists like myself, however. It took forever to sell animals, and I ended up switching to ball pythons. Popular folks will continue selling, big breeders will continue selling, but it’s the hobbyists who get hit by market crashes, not established breeders. However, if you stick with it long enough you’ll realize that these market trends follow a sine curve. As the market gets saturated interest wanes, people drop out, market desaturates, then interest goes up again, people join in, market gets saturated, so on and so forth. The important thing is this: if you’re a breeder, maintain your image and work hard at being a household mention. If you’re a hobbyist, do you what you love. If you keep chasing money as a hobbyist you’ll only get frustrated.
