My easy to breed list is almost certainly not the same as another person's list. Once someone tells you how to do it, a lot of reptiles are fairly easy to breed.

Give us a list of reptiles that you like. We can then give you a rough ranking from most commonly bred to least commonly bred.

The problem is that many of the easily bred stuff is already over-bred (corn snakes, royals, leopard geckos). Don't bother until you know you can sell or home the young.

Why are you looking to breed reptiles when you say because you are going to college you won't have the time to care for this one snake:

This is the most lovly snake i have ever met. i have had it since it was a baby and i have loved having it, but im going to college and sadly wont have time for it anymore.

I upload photos etc first here before they are on the forum, also it is easier to contact me there as i am on there more than on the forum. You will also get to see the babies for sale before the whole forum does so it is worth your while!

well what reps do you want to breed? decide that then do as much research as you can. breeding a rep just coz it's easy is the wrong reason to breed. these are living breathing things you're bringing into the world, what will you do with the babies? the market is flooded with corns, royals, beardies, leos you may struggle to find suitable homes for the babies and until you do, it's you that's got to feed, heat and house them.

theres something very wrong about this thread!!! The fact you have even asked a question like that makes it come across you are looking for a quick bit of cash to me.
Most people own a particular type of animal for a while before deciding they might like to have a go at breeding...but trying to find an 'easy' animal to breed is crazy!!!
