Let me offer another side to this discussion...

If you breed nothing but $50 - $150 animals, you'll probably only break even but it costs the same amount of money to keep a normal ball python as it does to keep an albino. Same cost, higher market value. If I sell 10 $100 snakes and you sell 10 $5000 snakes, who do you think would only break even? Me.

Breed animals that you enjoy working with and invest in some high-end animals. It will just be a matter of building yourself a reputation based on the quality of your animals. It's possible... maybe not easy but it is possible...
