I was looking at pricing bees @ 800 - 1000, that would be for real bright coloured ones.

cheapest I've seen so far is 800, that's for UK stock. I'm sure there will be some scrawny American stock going cheaper than that somewhere though.

I dunno why anyone would buy from North America, when they can source a UK bred one for around the 800-900 mark.

Also Crystal Palace Reptiles are still advertising them at 1395.00, so I think your 800 - 1000 price range is extremely reasonable.

I like Canadian stock, and the people are a different class to the Americans Laughing

Less breeders in Canada = less idiots.
More US breeders = well, stands to reason there will be less caring people.
But that said, there are many excellent breeding's in the US, in fact many more than Canada.Also worth remembering that the snakes in Canada are from the USA anyway.UK , Canada , and the US have great royal python breeders. Smile

Depends how desperate for cash the seller is! I'd say anywhere from 700-1000.

Smile I'm with you there Sue Smile Although I have a female bee and plan on shooting for Killer bees het ghost next season, unless I change my mind and put something else to her Laughing

Unusual1, I have to say I think it's the same the world over, there are good and bad in everything, I like Canada as their CITES are a damn site faster and although the founding stock my mostly have come from the USA there are also some other morphs over in Canada that will (hopefully) come from new WC bloodlines that could prove to be VERY exciting, Urban Pythons Lemost Frost and Toffee to name two that are looking very appealing Smile And Mark Mandic has some nice stock, I think I own a fair proportion of it now Laughing That said I own some very stunning normals, so I'm not just a morph addict, I go very gooey over my normals as well Smile

Oh, nearly forgot, Justin at O.C.D. is having a cracking season as well Smile
