All I have to say is welcome to capitalism. The principle some of you are missing is the law of economics that says an item isn't worth a cent until it is sold. In other words market value is determined by what the market is willing to pay for a given item.
Well said. Supply and demand. There are a lot more people producing animals in Canada today then there was 5 years ago and it's only going to get worth.
Think about how many people on this site have albino boas and hets and ball python albino hets, it's nuts!
What do you think is going to happen to the price of thoese animals in 5 more years?
If you're into herps in Canada to make money you're in the wrong country. We don't have the population so therefore we don't have the market.
Sure some people have made money and some still will but it's getting harder and harder to get a piece of the pie.
So I don't think it's the classifieds or the websites or the people selling the animals I think it is the amount of people producing animals.
