:$300 will not buy a visible color mutation. You especially will not be able to get a pair of animals with a color mutation for $600. In all reality, $600 is still not enough to buy ONE Ball Python with a color mutation.
:Pastel Jungle Ball Pythons are probably one of the most inexpensive color mutations on the market right now. You can pick up a male hatchling from $800 - $1500. Females run around $2000 - $2500. I would recommend buying a male from Greg Graziani, but you definitely would have trouble getting one for less than $1000.
:You may consider, however, to buy a pair of animals that are heterozygous for the color mutation you are desiring. It is highly likely you may be able to find a pair of 100% heterozygous for Albino Ball Pythons for $600. These snakes will be normal in appearance, but if you raise them up and breed them together, out of 4 eggs, you theoretically should get 1 Albino Ball Python. This is about a 2-3 year ordeal and takes a lot of patience and work.
:Do your research and find out what will work best for you. You may find you will have to wait a while and save your money. Good luck!
:Thank you guys for the help. Well i guess i will just have to save more. Or maybe i could just get some high yellows. I think they are some of the more beautiful normals :)
