I think you just summed up how the entire reptile industry works. When something is expensive, people stock up on it to start breeding projects and 'cash in'. Then by the time they get offspring everyone else is getting offspring. That's why you can buy all sorts of morphs of many species of reptile now for less money than a tank of gas.

That's why I am happy to be breeding russian tortoises. CBB russians are still hard to find, and the whole goal for me is spreading the knowledge necessary to consistently breed them so that WC are no longer necessary. Many other people breed animals strictly for the money, and that is unfortunate. I have 8 eggs in the incubator and one of the females is laying more as we speak
