Morphs and Repticon

I'm attending repticon this weekend, and I'm interested in finding a breeder that can get me a python morph. Are morphs less money at conventions?

Not that I've seen. What type of python are you looking for...

Re: Morphs and Repticon

I know people say snakes normally go for less at shows, but every expo I've ever been to, the snakes were pretty much about market price. They may be more willing to haggle, though I wouldn't necessarily enter into a conversation with the intent to haggle (but that's just me).

Re: Morphs and Repticon

I got a baby bumblebee at Repticon in ATL in April this year. I had zero intention to leave with a new snake, but she was very cute LoL Breeder was asking like $200... I said I wasn't interested, so after about 2 minutes of haggling by him (I never asked for a discount) he dropped to $160. Like I said she was a cute snake and I'm a sucker so... DEAL! LoL but I am sure I could have gotten a better deal online through a decent breeder... I wasn't worried about it, but I didn't see any fantastic deals at Repticon. The big plus for me is that you can see the snake and handle it before you decide. I don't like the idea of mail order snakes, but that's just me...

The negative of course is seeing so many beautiful snakes I wanted to buy every single one LoL

Re: Morphs and Repticon

Sale prices DO happen. I attended the repticon here recently and many snakes were priced below market value. Others were spot on, and others were over priced. My suggestion is to get there during the VIP hour and look at as much as you can BEFORE buying anything. I made the mistake of buying some sanichips from one vender because they were an excellent deal, only to go two rows down and find an even BETTER deal.

That being said, if you find something you REALLY like, take the time to look interested and yes, haggle. I walked away with a lizard that per market value should have been priced between 150-200$. I got her for 100$ plus taxes since I paid with a card.

Which brings me to my next suggestion. BRING CASH. Cash will get you MUCH cheaper animals, gear, accessories, and so on. Not only will they give you a cheaper price, but they also will not charge you tax if you pay in Cash!

So, look at EVERYTHING first, pounce on what you want IF you're sure that's what you want, and bring cash. =)

Looking forward to seeing whatever you walk away with! I apparently always seem to leave repticon with 3 new animals lol. 2 snakes and a lizard seem to be my MO. 1st time it was a hognose, BP, and a crestie. This last time was a corn, king, and Abronia graminea. Haha.

Best of luck to you!

Hope the "others" weren't "spit on!" That would be just plain rude!
