: Are they a strong bloodline?

Depends on which bloodline you get, of course. Most are good, but some may be overly inbred without me knowing about it. Opposite of what most people say, I don't think I know everything....lol.

: Are they easy to breed?

Not as easy as corns, but easier than many other colubrids. Most people with some colubrid breeding experience can get these guys to breed. Don't puch them to hard, don't breed them until they are 3 years old and 4.5+ feet in length.

: Any negatives?

Big poops. Really big poops.

: What do babies usually sell for?

Money. Usually money. Somewhere near ~$100-$125 sounds about right, but not everyone can get top dollar for them so don't count on getting that that price for them in 3 years. Don't get them for money reasons. get them because you WANT to get addicted to Pituophis.

: Any input is sincerely appreciated,

Find out what type of ghost bulls they are. Most people mean hypo white-sided bulls by "ghost," but not everyone does, so just find out before you have work with unknown genetics.
