spidergecko: say you have a breeding pair of BPs for a specific morph that cost you 5000 dollars, and the next year you get 6 babies. You want to recoup the initial expense as reasonably quickly as possible.

Compared to a corn snake you could say that the offspring are generating a lot of profit, but if the expense to create those offspring was significant then the profit margins could be considerably smaller percentage wise, impacting your ability to purchase more high end animals.
