Question
Hi, what's the worth of a adult common egg eater snake(
Dasypeltis scabra)?

Answer
Nico, this is truly one of those spots where "whatever someone will pay" comes into play.  I could only speak to the US market as I have no idea what things go for in the UK.  They are not common or popular here, probably because of the difficulty in finding appropriately sized fresh eggs.  I've seen them marked anywhere between $40-150, but probably haven't seen even 20 of them in my entire 20 years in the business.
