I am not a breeder and i have no interest in discourraging you from breeding.
Although breeding successes appear to become more frequent it is still a difficult species to breed and successfully raise the babies. It is also a species that requires some very specific (and relatively expensive) husbandry requirements. I am not sure what "snake experience" you have but I would consider raising one GTP or two for a few years before investing in breeding. If you invest several thousands of dollars (that is at least what it will cost you) hoping that next year you can sell the babies, you are in for a big disappointment...

Just the opinion of a non breeder...
