Nice specimen, but I just dislike albinos. I'm a purist, something weakly and unnatural about it to me. Same with unnaturally occuring hybrids.

Beautiful animals! Where do all these different Color Morphs come from? Is it that people breed two different species or do people do what they do with dogs and just selectively breed the coolest of the litter until you get something very different? Can one buy two normal ball pythons and breed them and a recessive gene brings out a different type? The Spider and the Albino are very cool congrats man.

These are naturally occurring mutations. Some are dominant (the spider) and some are recessive (the albino).

By breeding a dominant animal the a normal animal, half the offspring will look normal and the others will look like the mutation.

With a recessive, you would breed that to a normal and all the offspring would be normal looking but carrying the genes to make the mutation. When those offspring hets are bred, their offspring produce half normal and half looking like the mutation.

Then you get into double het and triple het breeding or 2 dominants or dom and het or co-dom.........

Lots of things to create with the right genes.:D

For example. I plan on breeding my spider to my pastel. That should give a cluch of spiders, pastels, normals and a combination of the spider and pastel called a bumblebee.

There are tons of different mutations. You just need to add the right ingredients.:D

I was looking a nice albino ball at a expo for around $900, wish I would have has the cash to bring him home. I would really like to have a high white pied most though, they are incredible.

I don't care for spiders.

Does a Normal Ball Python Sometimes have a reverse pattern? where the
Orange/yellow is turned black and the black is Orange/yellow? Are these cool different type of ball pythons really expensive? Can you send me a link with pictures of all the variations? Thanks

they have many morphs there, plus good pictures. Also they also explain the whole genes thing pretty well.

Very good, except when you intercross the hets you get 1/4 recessive and 1/2 carrier. I'm sure you knew and just mis-spoke, but for the non-genetically inclined, I thought I'd point it out so they don't learn wrong.
