Base Ball Python Morphs, favorites and those that are forgotten
What is your Favorite Base morph?
Mine? I really love most of them. I like to think that they all have great potential and are beautiful in their own right.
But to top the list are the Pieds, Albinos, Axanthics, Pinstripes, Spiders and Black Pastels. Pastels, Fires and Enchis are close seconds.
But wait, Heather.. those are a big group of them, they can't all be your favorites. Well, they kinda are, and they also ebb and flow as favorites. Ask me tomorrow what my favorites are, and the list will be different.
And there are those that are under appreciated, including Sables, Vanillas, Granites, and Genetic Bandeds (aka Tiger). Mostly dark morphs, or subtle morphs that do slight things to a combination.
Well, as a breeder, I have to appreciate them all. Base morphs are great things, and you have to love what they can do.
Lets see if I can list most of them.
Het Red Axanthic
Yes, I am aware that this is not a complete list, considering there are new things that are proved out (or not) every year. I applaud those that take the time to dink and prove out new base morphs. I hope to do that soon as well, as I have a few dinkers up my sleeve.
And I did prove out my black back to be a Het Red Axanthic, so.. I'm on the right track!
Anyway, with all the new things happening in the Ball Python world, I'm sure my list will need to be updated soon enough. If you guys out there in Internet land can add anything, that would be great as well!
As much as I know about Ball Pythons, I don't know it all. Who does? There is so much out there that happens...
Have a great day, my friends. It's raining, and snake sex abounds. Breeding pics tomorrow for sure!
