    Thanks! She is a darling little girl. She was produced by N.E.R.D. they are great and I'd definitely recommend them to anyone looking for morphs.

    I acquired this adult male ball python today and I'm trying to figure out the genetic line(s). I am a beginner at breeding (not at keeping them) but I would like to try him with my mojave female just to see what I come up with. From information I've gathered its possibly pastel, fire "something" but I've been looking at pics online (I know how that can be a bad idea) and perhaps see a little enchi somewhere so I'm gonna leave it at this: I will breed him with a "normal" female and see what happens....perhaps his offspring will give me a better idea. There are 2 snakes in the picture but top right is my mojave female. She's not ready for breeding but once she is I will pair her with him.

    Looks to be a vanilla pastel.. Both vanilla and pastel are there own gene and they are expressed as co-dominant. So what you have is two gene animal expressing both co-dominant genes IE, vanilla pastel.

    Ahh thanks it's no problem..

    Nice you will be getting alot of double gene and dom gene combos from that.. Super pastels, super pastel vanilla, lemon blast, pewter blast, pewters pins, vanilla pin, vanilla pastel, super pastel vanilla etc..Down to the base morphs.. You won't get a normal wildtype looking animal from that pairing.. It's all codom to co-dom and the two pastel genes from each parent will be dominant with 1/4th to 1/2 of your clutch being super pastels and then 1/3 to the other half being pastel with some other co-dom gene( pin, lesser or fire) attached..The vanilla gene really brightens things up and when added to pastel combos ( and others) causes really interesting faded patterns.. It almost acts like an allelic gene with the pastel in that it intensifies the blushing.. Expect alot of wacky blushed out or cleaned up patterns depending what genes get paired up..

    Do you breed them? You know a lot about them. :) My goal is to sell these and come up with the money for my dream ball python....a male Leopard Clown...... I've priced them and I haven't found one below the $1500 price range and that's for a baby!

    Yea I bred them a few times in the mid 90's.. I used my first clutch to pay for a pair of baby burms.. Over the years I have helped various breeders take care of there collections that's where I get most of my knowledge from.. In all honesty very few BP morphs interest me.. I do like leopards and clowns genes + combos along with pieds..
