:Personaly, I shy stay away from breeders who find 2 adult animals and breed them with the intent on making a quick "profit". Infact, they upset me and i feel they destroy the chondro community.

:To me this is not what keeping chondros is about. I look for someone who centers his or her attention to on chondros and has a love and passion for the species.

:It might sound weird, but to me there are Chondro People and Non Chondro people. You can pretty much smell a non Chondro person from a mile away. These animals are (again in my opinion) one of the most beautiful, royal, majestic and perfect thing on this planet. I dont see them just as "snakes". I look for the exact same if not more passionate attitude in my breeder.

:So (im not trying to be meen here) but if you want to be a sucessful chondro breeder, breeding should be the last thing on your mind, period. A chondro clutch is a blessing. I think a friend of mine said it best "dont expect any chondro to breed for you...ever". Purchase a capive born animal from a reputibal dealer who shares your passion and love for the species. Buy a chondro because you love chondros... not because you want to breed.
:

Breeding them was just a thought. Like I said, I have been looking to get a few GTPs for a while now. I was simply trying to find out if this was a bad idea or not. I am not purchasing the animals for breeding purposes. If I do decide to breed any snakes I get, it would be to keep some of the offspring. However, keeping all of the offspring is out of the question. I'm sorry to see my questions garnered such opinions.
