Hi jkuroski,
You are totally entitled to your own opinion on me and what I do, but man, I must have really rubbed you the wrong way somewhere to get a post like this. Don't you think it's just a little bit extreme? So what if I am overconfident that I can obtain and breed these species? Why does that bother you so much? Christ man, drop the anger. And my main goal is not to be rich from breeding snakes (though I am pretty sure this is a very likely scenario) but to do what I love and make a nice living off of it. My main goals are to travel the planet and see all it's natural wonders before it is all destroyed by our "progress". That's what I am about,. not about a big fat bank account in the Cayman Islands. And I DO think that the data I retrieve from these mere 50 herpers is valid and applicable. What better way to find out what everyone wants the most? And it seemed to work very well. I am happy with it. And furthermore,. it doesn't just determine WHAT I am going to breed,.. but how many, more importantly. Exmample: due to an overwhelming response to green tree pythons,.. I shall run additional females to produce greater numbers of offspring. See? It isn't about being the "Donald Trump of snakes" lol, but about countering the importation of the species and thus the depletion of the snakes in the wild. You should read my threads on that subject. I am VERY opposed to it and want to bring about a halt to it. Can we at least agree on that much? Anyhoo,... sorry I offended you in some large way. It wasn't my intention. Happy herping to you and to everyone else. ;)


:Sorry I am moving this little discusion up a little to make it easier to follow. What I said may not be true because with all your money from god know where you have purchased loads of snakes, or so I have heard. What I am say is that you will never produce either of those two species in your lifetime! And that I would be a cool 10K on. Your quest for credibility and acceptance in the herp community is over shadowed by your suspicious activities and plan lack of knowledge. Stop trying so hard. Figure out what you are interested in and stop trying to be the Donald Trump of snakes. Asking the 50 or so people in here what their top ten choices are is not a good capture of the herp hobbie as a whole. If you have all this money to buy snakes, why are you trying to make it rice breeding them? Your going to loose money in the long run! Oh, and barneck are not from Australia!
