It is interesting that people will try to save a few hundred bucks for a snake they will have to feed and house for 20 years (and we know how much they eat!). I have been watching the snake market for years - well before the internet. The average cost of very few snakes has held up over the past several years, but indigos are one of the few. Fifteen years ago a pair of womas cost around $4,000; now you can buy a pair for $500. Eastern indigos cost around $500 a pair fifteen years ago. Now a pair is around $1,800 to $2,000. Interesting.
