    Default Deal or no deal?

    I am literally tearing my hair out! I found a local breeder that is letting pure Nuu Ana hatchlings go for 400$...deal or no deal? I have been wanting a Leachie for a good long while now...but I am wondering if this is the best deal (for a pure locale, of course) I can get! Still stewing over it, of course! I was just wondering if another herper more aquainted with the current Leachie market could shed some light my way...pricing wise. Thanks a load, guys!

    Wish I could help you on advising if it's a good deal or not. I don't have a leachie, but if the the breeders collections and care are up to snuff, then I'd probably jump on it myself if the hatching pulled at my heart when I saw it. Hope someone with experience in leachies chimes in. Let us know what you decide.

    It is not a bad deal if that helps. I think there was a thread a while ago about what the prices on different species are currently running if you want to search for it.

    Ou, thanks! I actually had just found their sites as you posted this, I think! I will check them both out for sure!

    Im from cali and every show out here philippe de vojosli usually vends at. Ive seen him selling them for 350 to 400 pure locales just depends on the locality. So 400 isnt bad at all. But you want to make sure it is pures. I would ask the breeder where he got the parents from. Since theres people out there selling crosses as pures so I would watch out for that.

    400 is a good price if it is a pure locale, also it being locale you do not have to pay around 50$ for shipping so take that into accord too.
