Its so odd as got all the snakes to produce some nice high end snakes but took a look at the market and went the other way with low end but high looks be interesting to see how things progress
to be honest, I brought over 1.1 candy cane motleys and all their babies about 4 years ago. they all went in the end. people have been selling these and doing well with them for all this time, I suspect yours were from that import of babies of those.
They truely are amazing.

This is going to completely contradict my earlier post but regarding prices of snakes in general. It would be great if they all dropped to a low price then this would be much more of a hobby and less of a business I just think it would be so much better for the reptile community as a whole.. Rant Over..

Maybe this is best on a new thread but i don't see how it would be a good tthing at all. Cheap prices i think increase's the chance's the welfare of the animal will suffer

As Nige says it is very odd. The UK has the lowest price and some of the highest quality corn morphs in the world.. It's all about perception and market demand.

Stargazer or not we intend to breed quality animals and we would rather sell them in the UK but if our prices are too high (similar to Nige's) then we will sell mostly in Europe.

For us it is all about the love of producing a new corn morph. Of course, we pay attention to the market as it would be unethical for us to produce a lot of animals we can't sell.

Cheers
