Hate to break it to you but what most of the public really wants is to make a buck. The progressive change in the hobby has always been to give the public something new, new = higher price. There was a time when a yellow ratsnake was a big deal. Really now, how many of those do you see being produced today. Always a few being produced but nothing like the numbers that were produced years ago.

Nothing wrong with making a buck though and in any hobby change needs to occur to keep people interested. But the reason for the changes has always been for the buck. For example check out everything Ball Python and see how far they have come in the hobby.

Without change this hobby would have died a long time ago. Without the extra revenue there never would have been enough money for breeders to keep up with this change.
