The two most coveted mutations together in one snake....
Gold Dust Piebald
This is something new that popped out in two different Albino Pied double het. to double het. clutches in 2008. I'm not sure how the genetics work, but it looks like a reproducible trait.
The pastel and calico traits were made for each other. The unique pattern anomalies of the calico become even more exaggerated when combined with the pastel gene.
Super Pastel Calico
From left to right: Super Pastel Calicos shown with a Piebald, Super Pastel Calicos with a Calico and Pastel Calico, Super Pastel Calico and a Pastel Calico at one year of age, 2009 and 2010 Super Pastel Calicos.
Pastel Fire Calico - aka Calico FireFly
Pastel Fire - aka FireFly
The Fire gene really cleans up a Pastel, and they get better and better as they age. These have excellent future combination potential.
Super Pastel Fire - aka Super Fly
Pastel Desert Spider - aka Desert BumbleBee
Granite Pinstripe - aka Pepper Pin
Mystic Black Lace
We hatched two Mystic Black Lace in late November 2010. The addition of the Mystic gene really exaggerates the Black Lace characteristics; having an even more reduced pattern and darker black.
The Rio is one of two new ball python mutations proven here in 2010. The Rio trait is recessive, however the hets typically have visibly defining characteristics. We hope to be able to offer a limited number of hets for sale in 2011.
Super Pastel Nova
The Nova is the second new mutation we proved in 2010. We have not yet made public, photos of the base morph, but we hope these photos of the Super Pastel Nova will give some indication of the inherent potential of this new gene.
