Advertisement Although I'm veering towards carpet pythons, more ball pythons, or if I can only buy cheap, corn or king snakes, I do admire other pythons, especially retics and burms. That said, the internet mainly provides information when it comes to full sized reticulated pythons, size greatly effects the requirements of a snake. Since I would only be getting a dwarf retic if anything, since my parents would only allow such a thing and a giant reptile is not within my means, I'd like to know more information specific to the dwarf reticulated python subspecies. I'd also like to know their availability and cost to buy one. P.S. I would more likely get a dwarf burm, but with regulations in place, it's a no-go. I am very picky about regulated species and I try to avoid them the most, considering my life could change at any moment. (i.e. there's always the chance I may move out of state) Edit: Since availability may be an issue, as well as permits are considered, what are some species that reach around the size of a dwarf retic? I'm guessing a carpet python subspecies, correct? What are their general price ranges as well?
