I have been offerd a blood python, but wanted to know how much they go for i dont want to get ripped off! cheers folks!
First of all, it depends what type of blood you're talikng about. Secondly you'd have to check if it's WC or CB, the latter fetching more money.
Thirdly, a female of this size would be likely to be more valuable.
Having owned one for nearly a year now, I would not recommend one for inexperienced keepers. It's definitely not a beginners snake IMO.
They can be unpredictable, some have very bad temperament and you need to have the right equipment because it's a much more delicate snake than other most common snakes. They have an issue with humidity that some may struggle to adjust to right levels, etc.
Mine has been feeding like a pig, growing a lot and we are quite happy now that she's settled very well. However we had a lot of stress in the beginning.
She's very well tempered for a blood, she's not agressive at all, she never attempted to bite, but she's extremely shy and rather not be handled, because she can panic and try to get away in a hurry.
I reckon a 5 ft blood would probably fetch something between 150 - 250 quid depending on the things I've pointed out.
That's a picture of mine:
