To be honest with you, I think the typical Brazilian rainbow buyers are CHEAP! I'm not talking about the more serious enthusiasts like the forum members that participate here, but average online or show buyers. They see crappy animals for sale for $100 and therefore think ALL brbs should be that price, regardless of quality or differences. When it comes to morphs, outstanding colors or patterns, they have no clue what these differences mean or signify.
I've produced and sold many higher end morphs of other species and have never had issue getting top dollar for them. There are a myriad of ball python morphs that people don't hesitate to drop big money on because they're aware of the market on them.
Like any market, there are lower and higher end products. I may be wrong, but I doubt anyone here wishes to produce anything but the best we can, correct? I think the rainbow boa market needs to be developed and cultivated further so that buyers appreciate the difference between what we're offering, and the more common looking animals out there. THAT responsibility falls on breeders like US to educate and develop. It is in all of our best interest to do so!
