Thanks Derrick. Thats exactly true, and I was definitely trying to avoid to woman hating bandwagon as it isn't about the woman and my snakes. It's her worried about a future with a guy who spends money on snakes. I think that I'm gonna get it all straightened out though.

Sapphire, we have a rat colony that was started before easter but nothing came of it yet. We were told that it may be a dud male since neither female took, so the shop traded our male for a proven breeder male rat of theirs. This was two days ago, so I will have to wait it out again... Breeding rats would DEFINITELY save some dough!

Hey Brent, just wanted to say I'm sorry you are going through this If you were Canadian I'd definately try to help you out. ( I'm a sucker for a gorgeous animal ) I definately understand on the $ situation, I am forever saying I can't afford this or that, but somehow always seem to afford reptile related stuff

Hey Brent, just remember... there will always be more money. So you're down to the last dime... big deal. Ride it out for a while. Remember, eventually those snakes pay YOU back. Best of luck man.

Sit down and do the math on selling a pair of albinos versus breeding that pair and getting 20 babies and WHOLESALING all of them for $700 each. You would think yourself insane for thinking that the better money is to sell the pair!! LOL!

And am I psychic or what?

I'm glad that you cleared up teh issue of money, but honestly, I think you should ride it out

you are a hard worker and have been before....remember when you were selling meat and working hard

there's money out there, and like I said, 100% of your wages pays off your albino in 6 weeks, meaning, you could realistically pay it off in 6 months if you wanted and still have money for other things

I think yoiu should trim the fat, get rid of the extras that you don't need, and keep your pairs and the albino...sell your het, we've still got mine, hell, I'll sell my 66% and get your 100% so we'll still have 2 100% females....there are several aceptable solutions here, but this albino will put you in the black (in 3 years) but that is really not that long if you think about it
