I've heard that some people raise the prices because the cost of feeding these animals. If you add up the cost of food in order to get a retic to very large sizes, you will see that alot of people spend a fortune. Also, I kind of like having prices for retics and other large snakes high. Why? This might eliminate people from buying on impulse. Just my opinion...:)

:Im not sure the market value of a breeding size male. but there is somebody in the kingsnake classifieds under "pythons" who has an 11 ft TIGER male for sale. it is only $375. thats really good for an 11 ft tiger male. here is the add:

:1.0 c/b 00 Tiger Retic 11ft REDUCED

::I bought my retic 19 years ago for $125. I'm looking for a male for her, before she gets too old to breed. I've been perusing the classifieds off an on now but I'm just flabbergasted by the prices...some people ask $800, others $2250 for a 4 foot snake! My gosh!! Do people actually pay that much for large snakes?!?

::It's been my experience that those that have them don't part with them, or can't find a home for them if they want to...the zoo wont even take them for free. Seeing these prices, showing a market this steep; I'm just amazed. Is this normal?? Or are these people being greedy?? :)

::If this is normal, what's the value of a 20 year old, 14 foot female with normal markings??
