Question Raising Rattlesnakes or Alligators for profit?

Have any of you heard of anyone raising Rattlesnakes or Alligators for profit not involving a tourist attraction type of gimmick? I know snake skin boots are popular as well as alligators being a food product. Anyone have any good 411 on raising either one of these species as a profession?

In Portland Oregon you probably have zero chance at an alligator project. The only way to cost efficiently raise gators is to do it outside, but you have to be someplace hot to get it done.

I don't know how fast rattle snakes reproduce, but my guess is that wild caught specimens will still be waaaaay cheaper. I'm not sure if you could compete there.
