I am more then willing to pay through the teeth for HQ animals and from some one who is gonna give "tech support". Also Jeff bring up an excellent point about lineage.

I mean I could find jungle carpets in my local pet store for cheap but the chances of them looking as good as jeff's or don's are slim to none so I am more then willing to pay more for thiers plus with Jeff anyways I get the benifit of his many years keeping and breeding those animals and that is more then worth the extra Price!

I guess it all boils down to what are you willing to pay, and too me price is almost never an issue, Like Ken said Quality is #1 on my list. Ahywhooo thats my 2 cents on that bit

I am most certaintly willing to pay more for a name!!!!! Does this mean I exclude "no namers" like myself when looking for something? No. But in most cases if I want to buy something over a couple hundred dollars, I am gonna hope to find it from a well known breeder. Simply because like Jeff pointed out, they have something to lose if you are unhappy and most will go further out of their way to make you happy since they have to keep their good name intact. Someone who is selling me say 1 ETB and has nothing else, doesn't really care if I am not happy or not and probably doesn't have the funds or animals to replace should something go wrong.

Mind you with lower end stuff like corns, kings, regular balls and boas say, I would be willing to purchase from anyone and base my sale on the animals apperance alone. It's taking less of a risk with cheaper animals and I feel more comfortable possibly getting ripped off for 100 than I do 1,000.

Also on the brand names. When looking for hets I would always go to a respected breeder rather than a no name, just for safety sake. One of my fave brands being a woods axanthic! LOL, someday I will save up for those.

I agree with Queen Marisa. I would never exclude a smaller breeder. Its TOTALLY transaction-specific. After decades of buying reptiles, I would never just have a hard and fast rule for purchases.

And that's why I think places like here are great, because people can get TONS of info and do their research before spending their hard-earned cashola. Its not like the old days (like 10 years ago) when there was NO internet websites and you had to do everything over the phone and by snail-mail.

Psssh. If I was a real Queen I could say "off with their heads!" a lot more often than I get too now. :P
