Q: I need help Identifying my ball python.
Posted By:


I just recently purchased a ball python from a pet store that had no knowledge of what he was. I need some help to figure this out. Thank you.

Sorry for not responding sooner. Turned out the Pet store sold me a sick snake! He had an RI but is doing much better now! Thank you for the advice on what he may be??

Only breeding will truly answer your question; he could could be many different combinations of morphs. I say with confidence that it is more than one trait, but I wouldn't feel confident telling you how many or which ones without better pedigree information. If his eyes appear blue at all, that can help support lesser/butter/mojave; if they appear more green, that could help support pastel. You could have enchi, fire, leopard, yellow belly, or a recessive trait such as hypo (mentioned already) or even desert ghost. There are many morphs and they are quite drastically changed by interaction effects. Best of luck figuring out his genetics! Glad he's feeling better!

I’m sorry if this is inappropriate because this really isn’t an answer at all and I know all of 3 ball python morphs but he is absolutely beautiful!!
