DISCOUNTS: 20% early-order discounts expired Jan 1. Lesser discounts may be offered thereafter.
TO ORDER: A 25% deposit is required to place an order. Deposits are taken to assure orders are definite and that new homes are immediately available for hatchlings (after they have shed once and fed at least twice); if the balance is not paid within two weeks of notification that eggs have begun hatching, deposits are forfeited. Once I have shipped I will guarantee the babies for an additional 30 days.
When I feel I have taken orders for all my likely production I begin a WAITLIST to keep people in order should I produce more than I am comfortable predicting. There is no deposit or obligation associated with waitlist positions.
SHIPPING: Unless and until overnight couriers change their policies to allow the shipment of live snakes properly marked and packed, I’ll ship only by air, usually Delta DASH, which costs about $70. I pay shipping for orders of $1,000 or more; and I charge $50 for shipping on smaller orders—I pick up the rest of the cost.
OUR POLICIES: We ship after your animals have shed once and fed at least twice. Shipping is coordinated carefully for your convenience and the animals' well-being. I guarantee your satisfaction with them for 30 days after arrival.

Still taking orders: I should have excellent examples of this type for those who order now.
From snow project:
Snows are arguably the most dramatic of all the Honduran morphs, and with the exception of hybinos, are still the rarest. I’ll be breeding from my original silver-and-pink male, and from a bubblegum pink, white and yellow male. Females include a three-color female and double-hets. Babies may also be produced for the first time from our unique white and yellow snow female.
