First of all, I hope I'm okay posting this without an actual price.

Due to unforeseen circumstances I need to sell the entirety of my Royal Python collection.

I stopped purchasing new snakes a few years ago but kept my collection as pets, therefore I am unsure what they're worth in the current market.

Male:
Mojave - 1560 grams
Black Pastel - 1610 grams
Pastel - 1925 grams

Females:
100% Het Pied (Bob Clark) - 820 grams
Yellow Belly - 780 grams
Pinstripe - 2100 grams
Lesser - 2130 grams
Normal - 1600 grams
Normal 1590 grams

Non-Royals:
Unknown Sex Kenyan Sand Boa
Male & Female Thamnophis Proximus Rubrilineatus

Any help would be much appreciated, anyone interested in purchasing please also contact me.

I guess it's whatever the buyers want to pay, and how desperate you are to sell. Most of the morphs are "basic" in that they are not the most recent trends, so don't expect to get back what you paid.

A quick google will give you a fair idea

Normal's £30 - £40 for a 2017 https://www.morphmarket.com/eu/c/reptiles/pythons/ball-pythons/trait/normal

Lesser £90 - £100

Pastel £75

Like I said, it's what every you want for the snake, and whatever the buyer wants to pay...and what the trend is. With all these four and five gene snakes appearing on the market you may struggle to move these older single / dual morphs on for decent money, which is a real shame as it really devalues them to a point where it's not worth breeding them anymore, when in reality they are really stunning snakes in their own right

I am not a big fan of Royals, but I think Malc sums it up here.
It is verging on tragic that healthy, once very desirable animals are reduced to also ran's, due to their fall from grace in the fashion world. :devil:
