Morphmarket Availability

I need to stay off the market part of morphmarket :wink: Everytime I get on there i find a new snake or gene that I want and my taste in genes is getting more expensive.
I recently got into tristripe and now waiting to get my puzzles this last time I was on there got me wanting to get into cryptic.

I have the same problem. Its difficalt to stick to a plan when something really nice comes up.

Yea, I have someone who does that for me, my wife :roll_eyes:

But in seriousness she did get me to promise not to buy at night if I have had a few Rums.

Wife or more animals :thinking:

Sorry I don’t have to get permission to buy more

@jesseleavitt that bit if fun brightened up my day :slight_smile:

But to be serious for a bit, do your plans keep changing or do you expand them as you see new things?

My problem is that I keep buying more sand boas. I’ve bought at least a dozen in the last year. “But it’s so rare!” “But it enhances an existing project!” “But I’ve always wanted that gene!” “But I need more females!” “But it’s a trade, which means it’s free, right?”

I expand on existing projects

Me too usually but I am not always that disciplined. Sometimes i see something new, fall in love and get into new projects. Then I have to get another snake to go with it.
Where will it end

My only saving grace at the moment is that I’m trying to find a house or apartment to rent, otherwise I’d have way more than I already do! Looking at you, ultramel project (and to a lesser extent colubrids).

I’m exactly the same, my husband is constantly trying me to stop looking at geckos or snakes :slight_smile:

I have been passing them off as a possible investment to convince him, even though we are just starting out with the breeding side of things and we are likely to keep most of what we breed :grin: so investment is a huge exaggeration, hence possible :grin:

lucky for me, I do the money in the family…I want to point out that the snakes are technically his anyway :smirk:

Same with my wife, she says i love them more than her :smirk:

yes I tried that trick too. she is not buying it. She knows me well and that I will keep most and use any money to buy more expensive animals :roll_eyes:

That’s my problem, she does the fiances :unamused:

Does this class as ok to purchase her, since he’s so so lonely… So… Lonely… Look at how sad he is with no girlfriend…
He’s searching for a friend see :slightly_frowning_face:

Don’t tell him :shushing_face::joy:
Luckily the other half is usually showing me Cresties also. I mean he’s always the one to bring home rescue reptiles for ‘us’ to look after and find decent homes for.
Latest rehabilitation member is a 2 year old Albino Burmese who’s not eaten in over a year! Skinny, stuck shed and mites! He/she is going to be hard to let go as so friendly and adorable, but he/she is going to my friend so I know will be loved and cared for :heart:

We tell each other everything and tbh I’m pretty good with money and his answer is “as long as we can afford it” :grin: he knows I won’t buy something we can’t afford to care for… My eldest son gets the most annoyed as delivery is usually a reptile, or for the Reptiles and he wants to know why it’s not for him. Doesn’t matter that we have a house overflowing with toys

Some people buy clothes for fun… I’d rather buy reptiles

Yeah I can’t keep a secret about anything. Even when wanting to surprise him with something I find it hard…
Haha that’s brilliant! Maybe the next reptile can be for him? My daughter loves everything here and says ‘Is be mine aswell?’ :sweat_smile: Shes 6 in June bless her. It’s always a yea Ofcourse! She loves her new Crestie too and had first cuddle today with him and loves how small and cute he is and his red spots! :blush:

Love that, I’m the same too, we’ve got these longer than a jumper or pair of trousers! My family think I’m mental at times I swear. I’m the only one with reptiles/amphibians… So maybe they just don’t get it :thinking:

I just bought hubby an albino ball python as an early birthday present, birthday is June. And I couldn’t keep it quiet so told him before I actually put the deposit down lol

My 7 year old asks which ones are his, he occasionally holds them, takes pictures of them and brings sticks home for them, he just likes calling them his Gecko’s. I said he can choose a baby reptile when we eventually breed some.

I’m trying to restrain myself this year as purchased 1 snake and 1 Crestie this year and far too many last year lol! I am Trying to look logically that space will run out (for the Cresties at least) and breeding is my goal… If I buy too many, then I can’t breed the reptiles we do have!

Once the kids are older and have significantly less toys, I will be going all out again though :grin: if I make it that long lol

People without Reptiles don’t understand that owning 1 reptile just isn’t a possibility :slight_smile:
