Courtesy of The Reptile Report, TSK hit some serious genetic gold when they hatched an albino tri-stripe.

The snake is amazing.

The Tri-stripe is a rare morph that, as far as I know, is pretty exclusive to TSK projects. They are super cool-looking snakes. They apparently just hit an Albino twist. It's pretty amazing looking.

Yeah, plus the Tri-stripe isn't that old, so there aren't that many of them to my knowledge. I definitely haven't seen many (if any, in fact) for sale outside of TSK's own website. It's definitely a neat morph. I really hope it catches on soon, I'd love to see the price dip enough that hets were readily available Smile

i dont wanna see any kind of price drop whatsoever! i want them to stay high in value so when we all get succesfull we can afford to get these when noone else can... just me you and steve Wink (since we're the only ones who replied lol).. but i really do like to see high prices. did you know that when mike wilbanks first got into breeding spiders went for 50k and pins went for 25k... what a drastic change !

Wow, that is insane!!! My spider boy was $250 when I got him back in '08. Now male spiders are selling for like $100, and my Albino boy was $450 just a few years ago, and now I'm seeing them for $300.

I have mixed feelings about pricing. I love when I can afford them, but I hate that reproducing them doesn't put much back into your pocket to expand your collection Sad Stupid maths!! lol

Way back when I started in albino Burms they were 2500. And you got good money for baby's. I watched them drop to a low of 89.00. With a small come back to 200. The breaking point for me was when what I made on the baby's didn't even pay for the food for the adults. Balls hold there price a little better because of low off spring numbers. Which only work till they to become plentiful an people dump them. A good example in resent years was the hondo market. The bottom fell out over night. You could pick up entire collection for pennies.

Wow, that's kind of sad :c Bummer for Hondo breeders. I know Burms are taking a price hit now because of the new laws. They seem much cheaper now than they have been, now that they can't be shipped or really transported.

I don't watch Colubrid markets very closely, so I didn't even notice the Hondo drop :c

Yeah, I love the way even the basic Albinos look. They are so bright!
