With the prices going down, what snakes have you picked up for an absolute steel? Where they on MM or somewhere else?
I am a firm believer in QIQO so I have not bargain basemented anything. Last purchase was over $2000 and while it hurt, I still feel it was money very well spent
Over the winter I picked up this breeding ready leopard het clown 66% het VPI axanthic and 50% het desert ghost for $250 shipped. Whether he was a bargain depends on if he hits his 1:3 chance of being a triple het for the hottest combo going.
Unfortunately I have no known het desert ghost females but I’ve been using males like him to make possibles and am anxiously awaiting a desert ghost test.
The female he is locked with is hypo het clown. So hoping for a leopard clown het hypo to someday test for het axanthic and desert ghost.
It really wasn’t much of a bargain but my last purchase was $3000 but it’s the only one ever produced so its a big deal. Not a ball python but a boa
got to love slim shady
Lol true true
Somewhat local breeder might be getting out of the business soon. Still had a lot of snakes on hand.
Picked up a gorgeous Spider GHI fire Orange Ghost, and 4 other noodles for 550$
The mom, a spider OG has great expression on her, I’m really hoping this one passes that on to the little ghosts next year. Or at the very least I end up with a couple cute mojaves with GHI or fire from the pairing. Plan on pairing him to a mojave coral glow fire het OG. If I end up with 4 eggs and 3 super fires I might be a little less pleased though. lol.
Bongo dinker female for 20 bucks along with a gorgeous pastel leopard for 100! Next steal that I’m hoping to get this weekend is an adult proven OD fire male for 125
My most recent pickup I thought was a good deal. Been about 6-8 months or so but got this girl at a local show. At the time it was the lowest I have seen an OD Calico female bp priced. Paid 125.00 for her.
Pic of when I got her
Pic of her colors now
It was a deal, but only because it was the end of tinley on Sunday. I definitely paid a pretty penny for her. GHI (poss super) chocolate hypo.
GHI Hypo is one of the nicest looking platforms to launch off of. Chocolate looks amazing here
Definitely couldn’t agree more. Plans this next year are to make some more hypo/het hypo stuff with my ghi male, and hopefully have something nice to pair to this girl and a chocolate lesser fire het hypo girl I also picked up at tinley. Chocolate is my next big push to get in to. I’ve wanted to for a while, just had to find the right snakes.
What a unique stunner! Whatever you paid it was worth it obviously! You dun good!
She is very pretty! I love the white as part of her coloring! Also your background/backyard? is so beautiful!
Just picked up 4 females and 2 males for 100 bucks nothing to special genes wise but couldnt pass it up. Had some genes ive been wanting to work with so win win for me
added stranger and lace, both multigene hets, for pretty good prices. I wouldn’t say absolute steal but I felt like I did pretty good and the people I purchased from were happy for the business.
Very pretty! I really love the Dodomas!
