I don't entirely agree...people buy privately via clasifieds in order to secure good deals on animals especailly ppl who have many animals. Just think that 100 bucks saved off the purchase can go towards some decent stuff for the new herp. Now I'm not saying ppl should give their animals away but there is nothing wrong with trying to get a good deal. A ball python costs less then a green tree python but their maintenence costs are pretty close...just because I can't afford a piebald ball python doesn't mean I can't feed it. PPL want to get the snake they want so the try to get it at a price they can afford there is nothing wrong with that. Don't like the offer then don't sell. Offers are not insults they are offers. Nothing wrong with offering.
