Simple question.. What are true Emps going for these days? I never got around to getting one before the ban here in the U.S. I know they skyrocketed, and i don't know if i should invest in one or not.
I have a silly dream of opening a sanctuary for breeding animals that are becoming extinct.. XDIt's amazing that I could get P imperator for $5-$10 way back when. I guess over collecting really decimated their numbers. Another reason why captive breeding is oh so important.
I remember when they were $14.99 at Petco. Sometime a sale would be 2 for $25.00 or something.Idealistically I don't think they should ever have been sold for less that $45 but supply and demand dictates that. Imo, around $70 is a fair price, I mean look at those things. But the price is what people will pay of course.
