You can find normal emory babies for $15 - $35 (BEING THE MOST I WOULD PAY FOR A BABY)

Paying lowest price for an animal very often isn't the best buy.

What reputation does the cheapo seller have among others involved in the hobby? Are you sure that the animals being offered are captive-bred, or may they be wild-caught? If c/b, does the seller offer a full satisfaction guarantee? Will the seller replace the animal many months later if you're dissatisfied with its colour? Does the seller absolutely guarantee that the animal is feeding reliably? How concerned is the seller about replacing an animal that expires in transit?

To my mind, all of these questions are important. I don't want to run the risk of bringing in parasites with a w/c baby. I don't want to pay shipping, and then receive an animal that won't feed, or that is d.o.a. and the seller won't replace. I don't want to pay for an animal that may be an intergrade, and the seller doesn't reveal that fact.

Just my POV.
