...Why?
You don't just "shop around" for snakes... they are not shoes.
If you don't even know specifically what you want, clearly the true passion is not there and you are looking for all the wrong reasons... meaning you shouldn't be getting anything.

WOW!!! Maybe I'm wrong but I took it that he has a certain amount to spend and was "shopping around " to see what morphs are in his price range!

Yeah Sylvias. That attack seems a bit harsh and uncalled for.

why not
when you want a ford do you buy the first one you see no do you buy the first one the dealer says you can afford (not me) then there is the salesman can he be trusted is he knowledgeable or is he just trying to make a buck from the sucker that is born every minute(i am a sucker just wasn't born last minute) was the car buying experience memorable when your ready would you buy from them again

i mean i could go to the mile of cars and buy the first ford brought to me and i would probably be happy if that was all that was available to me fine but its not there is the little guy on 15th and sunylane no he doesn't have a mile to chose from but he does have a select few that is as nice as the other guys perhaps he has the same passion as the others and the same desire to be as big but just not the budget

then there are the questions the mile of car guys are there for you they are also there for 1,000 other people and they are also busy washing that mile of cars and traversing the country side looking for the next best car they will get to you but maybe not a s fast as lets say the guy on 15th and sunylane who buy 8am
has finished washing his cars and is now scouring the world wide web for his next great thing and peering over is laptop screen and wondering when he will make it to that big show across the pond

so yea i am shopping around i have been the sucker and bought from the world wide web that said 100 percent het has come and gone as nothing more than normal's that said maybe i was extremely unlucky for three years had good babies just not what i was looking for o well i will try again but this time i will find someone i can trust

"he who ask a question is a fool for a minute; he who does not remains a fool forever" author unknown

with the price of animals varying and the quality of the morph also varying how can you not shop around

i love reptiles i love ball pythons cant wait to have one of everything
im 35 retired and set my butt at home all day plenty of time to care for animals
when i sit down to watch some TV with the wife i am secretly imaging cleaning and caring for reptiles
i would rather clean a cage than watch TV (how crazy am I)
when there is not enough hours in a day to provide quality care for my animals i will stop adding them until then i will keep shopping

p.s.
Sylvias
your right snakes are not shoes nor are they cars they are much more
sorry if by me shopping around offends you i apologize
please don't take the above post as an attack on your person or character its not
it is merely the length i will go to to find what i am looking for and what i expect from my experience
perhaps i should of posted a more detailed explanation of what i was asking instead again i am sorry
thank you for your time

I don't know why she got upset about your post. I don't understand what she expects you to do. I shop around and almost everyone does too. I think its funny and odd that people have a way of debating or attacking people for anything. So bizarre Shocked

That was a bit harsh. I mean crap, I know I want to work with viper geckos from the pictures I've seen and what I've read. But that doesn't mean I automatically know if they're in my budget or not (and seriously, where are they?! I can't find them to save my life).

I agree with shopping around. It's better than buyer's remorse and you may find something you didn't even know you were interested in. There a lot of great resources here. Sorry I am no help with ball pythons except the stray rescue. Good luck! I never would have been introduced to black milksnakes had it not been for Larry and I think they are one of the coolest snakes out there.

It's just the way you stated it, like you really don't care what you get you just want the coolest thing you can afford.
That is how it sounded to me anyways, sorry for jumping to conclusions. Try to understand that I work at a pet store and probably more than 90% of the people I deal with on a daily basis are just stupid and when I hear phrases like that it sets off a red flag cause those people are almost always looking for the cool factor... NOT someone who should be getting any animal. It just pisses me off when people talk about snakes like they are objects and not living beings. I get people all the time that want "a snake" and they have no idea what... they just want one... why? 'oh well i want something cool!' ok.... why else? nothing.... I mean yeah snakes are cool, awesome amazing creatures, we all know this, but there has to be more reason than JUST the cool factor... if there is no real passion for the animal they will get bored and neglect the snake. Usually people who can't even give me a general idea of what they want and why they want it get redirected in a way that helps me avoid selling them an animal (unless it's a rare occasion where they are truly interested in snakes and just don't have any experience at all to go off of... never been around snakes or something like that but they want to). I don't mean to say that's you at all. That's just where my thought process has gone.
Anyways... I don't always leave that sort of mind set at work where it belongs. sorry for jumping you like that.

I do think though you should at least have some idea of what you are looking for though... 'Ball pythons' is still a very general subject..there's only like.. 80 thousand different color morphs of the <expletive> things -.- surely there are a few that interest you more than others.

I'm glad you all started talking about herps again. All this talk about balls makes a girl feel out of place. Laughing
