Matt - I know what you are saying, but if everyone sells off their breeders of "unpopular" species, then who has those snakes? Will they breed them / sell offspring - represent them properly? I've thought many times about getting out of meahllmorum because they don't sell well - but I don't because I really like them - and maybe some day, others will start to value them as I do...

BTW - there is nothing wrong with taking a break from breeding a species. It has been 3 years since I bred meahllmorum - I will be trying the possible het reverse-striped which are also Nueces County locale this season...

And... This might be somewhat controversial for some - but I don't have a problem with folks feeding unwanted babies off to other things (indigos, kings, snapping turtles, whatever..) and have even given some of my extra babies to a friend for food for his animals. I think this might actually be preferable to selling a bunch of babies to a wholesaler and then seeing your babies in the classifieds selling for way too little for a year or more - BEEN THERE - won't do it again...
