:Two different dealers think baby black mambas are worth 450 and 550?
:And baby green angusticepts 300 haha
:they must be smoking some crack.
:I get blacks at 175 to 400 for big adults
: babys worth less like 100thats all id pay
:and greens import adults $50.00 to 150
: no body except a moron would pay 300 for a baby green.
: get of the drugs guys!
: we are laughing at you!

Keep in mind, those prices you're referring to are for w.c. imports. These babies are c.b., and so of course will fetch a higher price. Although I have to agree, $300 for baby Eastern greens is rediculous when Glades Herp was selling theirs for $150, meaning they probably bought them all for $100 or less. Ah well, if they can get that much, go for it. I don't think it's a bad thing that these companies are charching $500 for polys, as I've seen fresh adults go for at least that much, and also it keeps them out of the hands of some that probably shouldn't have them. Oh, and also, the same guy that was venomoiding his rinkhal babies (I believe it's the same one, with the "captive hatched" rinkhals), is now selling a venomoid adult for $950 and a pair of sub-adults that are in tact for the same. Now that's funny!
