Hi Gregg,

Hogs obviously produce more, so the drop to the stabilized price will be quicker, but it will occur in the same fashion as the leucy bp did. It is so awesome that the market will continue to absorb them. Just as thousands upon thousands of common albino ball pythons are produced every year and still selling at $200-$300, even though they hit that pricing tier many years ago. They are still an awesome morph (even w/o combos)in their own right and continue to sell because the pet buying community can afford them. Leucy w. hogs will do the same thing. I'm absolutely agreeing with you in that it is "dead end", but I think that it is so beautiful that its lack of combo making ability won't matter.

I've been producing pieds and blue-eyed leucistic ball pythons for about ten years and both dropped at about the same rate and are currently going in that $500-$700 range, depending on the amount and quality of white of both (many leucy bps are not pure white depending on parent animals). Thanks.

Will
