I feel like, for sellers on Morph Market, there should be a standard on what the buyers want to see.
For example, I have seen countless Ball Python listings that do not list the parents, weight, birth, or even what they’re fed.
I understand sellers wanting real inquires and such, but I’m sure that it would be best to show at least what the parents are. What if (for example) someone wanted a BEL but didn’t want to buy one with Spider in its genetics? That almost happened to me because the seller didn’t list the parents and I didn’t think about it.
If buyers are required to inquire about more pictures, parents, weight, birth, and/or diet on every inquire, they’re bound to forget something. For me, it’s a lot more convincing to go for a listing that immediately appeals to my main priorities.
Listed parents, eating Frozen/Thawed, has an appropriate price, ETC is ideal.
I personally don’t really want to inquire and ask about a snake’s diet every time I’m interested.
Overall, there should be some strict guidelines or a rule of thumb on how breeders should present their animals. Make these things required fields and such. If the seller has a lot of information on an animal they’re selling, it convinces me that they truly care for the animal.
It also doesn’t help when a seller hides their reviews. It doesn’t say anything aside from “I have something to hide”. It is their right, I understand that. It’s still frustrating.
In conclusion, I believe Morph Market should set a standard on breeders and require them to fill out certain information about their animals. At the very least, the parents and what they eat. These two are huge factors for me as well as others.
What are your thoughts on this? Please let me know.
