Good points Mousekilla but I also do not agree with the statement that everyone breeds for money. I also have a small collection and breeding for money at this point would be laughable and foolish. LOL. I wonder if I breed enough corns if I could pay my electricity bill for a month. LOL. Doubt it. Even later on I won't be doing it for money as I have put more money into my current collection that I would probably ever make in babies.
I breed snakes because I love snakes and think high qaulity captive snakes as pets and for breeders have a real place in this world and captive breeding has taught us more about snakes than any other interaction with them. I also just personally love snakes and the thought of seeing my own babies being produced here was just a huge attraction for me.
