I think it better if I were to clarify what I meant. I said primarily businessperson or hobbyist. Primarily being what got you into snakes first. Some have always loved snakes and think it cool if they could make a buck at it too. Some others see hobbyist making the buck and decide to keep snakes to make a buck. Primarily is the keyword. I've had to ask myself plenty of times when I have failed breedings, why I keep snakes. Now I don't care as much about breeding as I used too. Heck, I have more lone males now then I did before.

Anyways, wasn't aiming that comment at anyone, but I just happen to have known a couple of people who got into snakes cos of the potential $. Sad but true. Often enough, those "businesspeople" don't last long in this hobby.
