You find it disturbing???
An animal is worth what someone is willing to pay for it and what the current owner/breeder is willing to accept to part with it.
Pretty wide range of possible prices.
Why don't you go to some breeder sites and see what they think it's "worth"?
Also remember consider they have to house the animals for the 3 months until they could be sold and until someone buys the animal. Plus the cost of feeding it, utilities, and work put into the animal. Also bloodline, captive bred or wildcaught, different things affect to price of the animal.
