I recently saw blue tree monitors going for 50 grand at a show in Orlando and there was also an albino Nile which I believe was going for twice that.
No way I would spend that kinda money....that's more than my house! Then what if your power goes out in the dead of winter?!
Not that I think people are foolish for investing that kinda money into an animal....people think I'm nuts for spending a few hundred on an animal they wouldn't even want in their house.
There are a couple of guys at my job that spend thousands customizing their cars with audio equipment and paint jobs...that's not for me either. But if that's your thing,go for it.

Brian Griffin: Yeah, about your pamphlet... uh, I'm not seeing anything about German history between 1939 and 1945. There's just a big gap.

I guarantee you, if i had the money to, there is a LOT I would buy!
However, I wouldn't spend much more on "morphs". First of all, why are mutants so special? lol, but seriously, all you need to do is wait a couple years and then the morph you like is more affordable. Just look at albino boas! Bred in such haste, now they are hardly high end animals and many are missing eyes. They are beautiful, but I would tend to go for the animals that are expensive because they are darned hard to breed/keep, like ETBs, GTPs, rare morelia, etc. I, for example, would spend much more on an Amazon Basin Emerald Tree Boa, than I would on an albino tree boa

For some it's a status symbol and they won't be keeping it in a cheap rubbermaid either. A custom display cage with lots of glass to be able to see the snake is the way to go.

If i had money to spend and wasn't interested in breeding, then sure, i'd buy one.

There is a loop hole! Check the pound for snakes. I got a blackheaded python for $70 because they had know idea how much they are worth. it diden't have papers but it was just a good tame snake. they might not be captive bred but it was a good snake. In conclusion Joe-Blow has know idea about the price but herpers do so check the pound for snakes. alot of pounds only charge for vet check and food and basic husbandry ect ect.
1.3 african rock pythons 2.7 burmese python 1.2 albino burmese pythons 1.1 green burms 1.1 granite burms 1.1 normal reticulating python 0.1 yellow anaconda 1.1 costal capret pythons 4.9 nile monitor 1.1 croc monitors 4.6 dwarf caimans 1.3 amarican aligator plus some others
