Or (which is more likely) therey won't be dominant and there may or may not be a chance of some of the hatchlings having speckling too...

'Granite' is probably one of the most misused, abused and exploited terms for royals! lol :roll:

yep very true...as long as your getting from a reliable source though...your ok.

ive seen so many on classifieds saying their granite...when there blatently not

This snake has already featured on another thread and it was deemed as not being a granite. It's still a nice snake though 8)

Defo ukbob! Nice strip down the back as well.

Looks like a beauty. Not sure why ralph is charging that much.. i've never seen prices on granite's before, this certainly puts things into perspective doesn't it... :shock: lol

Initially i was thinking nobody could just give away a $10k snake.. but.. obviously i have a different opinion on it now. Maybe with different pictures of what is on offer it would be easier to determine whether it is or not.

i was lucky and picked up that female when people were just starting to look at granites having said that there are several CB bloodlines in the US now that sell for about $500... i think ralphs price more of a "i dont really want to to sell but if you pay me stupid money i will..." LOL! have a look at some of his other projects like his banded ball pythons... cory woods has a well established line of banded ball pythons and doesnt ask such high prices

in my experience granite ball pythons exhibit such a wide variation in pattern and price some are absolute bargins others arent...

regards
bob
