Yeah, and it's scary we both came up with the same explanation (pretty much).
I view the difference between a business and a hobby "collection" by the amount of non breeding animals maintained. We have fewer "non breeders" than we used too, some people keep no non breeding snakes whatsoever, and others have collections mostly comprised of non breeders.
I'd say that is a pretty good guide.
