Typically i think albino morphs hold there value more than any other morph. I dont think the Tortoise trade is anything like the BallPython trade where you have to be on the cutting edge of the latest craze. I know of very few tortoise breeders in my area. Most of the ones i know i keep in touch with via emailtext message in other citys. I think the length of time it takes to mature a tortoise keeps the value up. Not many people are in it for the long haul with something like that and not many people got the coin to spend on a project like that. So in 7-8-9 years when your producing the price might drop to something more affordable for most people. I LOVE tortoises and it would be hard for me and people like me to come up with an investment like that. I think theres a $300-$500 sweet spot where most enthusiests can come up with pretty quick. I think your investment will pay off for you. If you take good care of them they will take good care of you!
