Hello, reptile buddies! It’s my first time ever creating a topic on here but the time has come!
I’m looking for hatchling ball python genetic/IDing help as I managed to have my first successful clutch hatch on the 11th of July!
Welcome 8 little ball python sneks!
Super Pastel Cinnamon Hypo
Lesser Fire Spotnose Specter
I have a rough guess of what all of them might be but I’m not 100% certain, that’s were I’d like you guys, who are more experienced, to come into play.
I’m not sure about being able to identify the Specter gene which is why I would title all pos specter, however, I just saw a very interesting id help with a yellowbelly example, so maybe I could figure that out after all…
Also not sure about Fire and Spotnose, I know they brighten the snake and SN makes the alien heads more roundish but honestly, I’m kinda guessing with some.
Here are the parents:
And here is a collage of the hatchlings!

The fact that some of the silver hatchings are lighter and more washed out than others is a little confusing to me.
