ok so here is what i sent :
hello, i am responding to your kijiji ad for a ball python- and i would like to tell you that ball pythons are not "wild and dangerous animals", but make rather harmless, small, and tame captives. i would also like to tell you that an adult normal ball python is only worth around 150 dollars, and no more than 200. even with the equippment, it should only sell for 300 dollars maximum. i am just telling you this so that you know what to expect, and that no experienced snake keeper will buy a ball python for that much. i actually saw your ad on a reptile fourm full of experienced keepers, and they were all laughing about it. so for the pythons sake and yours, please take down this ad and sell it at a reasonable price.
