My female baby Pastel Ball Python is beautiful and a little bigger than I thought. No issues at all and I like that there's a little card that gives you the date she was born and an explanation on what she's feeding on now and the day. I plan on orde... Read more
I was at work when my boa arrived so my wife was home, she said the snake crawled out of the bag as soon as she opened it, like she wanted to be held. It's been two days since she arrived and feels perfectly at home. Very curious and very sweet! My r... Read more

Genetic Stripe Ball Python
The Genetic Stripe Ball Python is not the only way to make a snake that is fully striped but it is the cleanest and surest way, this recessive mutation is one of the earliest pattern mutations in Ball Pythons. This gene is known for its ability to overcome almost any other whether co-dom or recessive. Most examples of Genetic Stripe Ball Pythons will have a base color of tan to brown with a yellow dorsal stripe that is bordered by solid or broken black stripes.
The best way to look at this animal is as a striped canvas that can be painted on with other genes. You can add yellow and purple with pastels. You can clean up the yellow and add contrast by adding butter. Add both pastel and butter for one of the nicest combos out there. Yellowbelly will add orange diamonds on the side and banana and lavender albino add amazing purple and orange. All in all this morph is very unique and a must have when it comes to collecting and breeding Ball Pythons.
