25 Most Expensive Pets

#14 – Striped Ball Python – $10,000

Owning a python as a pet is extremely brave for the owner. Pet pythons are usually inexpensive and their price is on average $100, however, rare specimens like the Striped Ball Python, which have a thick yellow stripe on their skin, are very expensive when they’re put up for sale.

At the moment, there is only one breeder in the world that sells Striped Ball Pythons which possess that rare yellow stripe on their skin. Striped Ball Pythons without that feature cost around $120, while the Striped Ball Pythons with a yellow stripe cost on average $10,000.
