ha~
this is a good thread....I really have to look at myself....
last year I have spend more than 20,000 on just herps and this year I have spend at least 10,000 on them again....so just on herps within two years time I have spend at least 30,000 CDN on them....
this is not even including the feeding, heating, heat pads, cages (tanks/tubs), or even the rack systems.....I think with all those together I have spend yet another $6,000 plus.....geeze.....

but the good thing is that I have 1 full time job, 2 part time job and that I own a business in China.....phew.....but still....spending way too much....need to sell some just to get a fraction back.....hahha

I only own two, and I just recently got my second bp, so all together, since july, I've spent about $400. I don't pay for electricity or water, though, so I think that helps.

I just recently spent $400USD on a 6 month feeding supply, so I go close to $1000 a year without any new animals or housing
