Rant on breeders at shows.

So I went to the white plains NY show yesterday, which was great, and it was huge. While walking around, my roomate found this AWESOME ball python. the colors were fantastic as was the pattern. Best of all, it was listed at only $40. So we asked the sex of the guy working the table. He went and brought it to the breeder to sex. The breeder came over to us and said he is going to keep it if its a female, and although he hadnt sexed it yet, he was gonna take it off the table.

He told us the snake came from pastel bloodline, and although it didnt have pastel quality, it was certainly above the quality one would expect from a normal ball.

I honestly cant say I blame the breeder for saying he was going to sell the snake. It would definately make for a good hold back. Im just mad that I saw it, and was so close to purchasing it (or my roomate would have bought it) And then it was denied to me. That just sucked.

oh well. end of rant.

Why did he take it to a show and put a price tag on it if he was going to keep it. That would have burned my A$$.

That is ridiculas, he shouldn't have priced it and taken it to the show if he wasn't going to sell it.

Things happen. I have no problem with breeders, if they decide they want to keep it, it's theirs to keep. It's not like they sold it to you and then reneged, no money exchanged hands, next time you decide you want something buy it and then get it sexed cause after you buy it it's yours.

How many times have you heard about buyers changing their minds about buying something? Surely a seller can change his mind about selling something.

Doesn't make a whole lot of sense he would bring that snake if he wasn't planning on selling it, let alone price it and set it out. I also wouldn't be so sure he knew it was from any bloodline as that is pretty cheap for a captive bred baby. Nor would it matter if it came out of a pastel breeding, the trait is co-dominant... if its not a pastel its a normal. The whole thing sounds a bit mixed up to me.......
