It’s amazing to me to think that one of the very first ball python mutations to come into the country and get placed into mass production is still to this day one of the bestselling and hardest to find in the time of need. The Albino Ball Python has sustained and helped to develop quite a few breeders and companies in the United States much like the Albino Burmese Python did ten years earlier. Due to the recessive nature of this mutation, mass production has been and will remain a challenge to people that are going to be making ball python morphs in the future. The average time it takes to get a baby ball python up to breeding size is three years for het albino females and up to five years for visual albino females.
Why Finding an Albino Ball Python for Sale is not so Simple
Many pet owners think that finding an albino ball python for sale is as simple as looking online or going to the local reptile shop or reptile show. In reality it gets more and more difficult as you try to develop a market for any given ball python mutation. The problem is that once you have made a product accessible to the masses your real challenge surfaces and that is the challenge of keeping a supply line operational. Unlike other products that can be mass produced overseas and imported by the thousands, albino ball pythons are a labor-intensive product that takes many years of planning and infrastructure to produce. I happen to know a couple of the biggest breeders of albino ball pythons in the world and even with their yearly production combined it still makes a tiny dent in the demand for these beautiful orange and white snakes.
