Not ridiculous at all. Why should a breeder go through all the hard work, RISK and time to produce morphs at a lower price so YOU can afford them? That's not fair to the breeder. You have to understand that these morphs are NOT for the general public's consumption (although they CAN buy them if they want to). The morphs are for other breeders and are seen as an investment. Until the particular morphs is established in the industry (and not JUST established, but inundated) then the prices stay high. These are not pet-store animals (thank God!). I think that $20 for a Leopard Gecko is ridiculous. And its the leos that suffer for it.
