Honestly, you never really see adult lavender ball pythons in person. You get blown away when folks showcase their prized breeders, but, is there a way to discern quality of hatchlings to improve your odds of the highest color stock?
I get it, ask for pictures of the parents, seek RDR lineage, etc. But sometimes you don’t get what you ask for. Are there any tips or tricks in purchasing baby lavs without lineage info or parent pics?
I only ask to see if there is a way to broaden the selection process, because getting so picky to demand specifics from all breeders can definitely limit the actual results.
I do have my eye on a few select breeders at the time, but it sure would be nice to open the options up further.
And maybe I am wrong to assume that a high quality adult would always produce offspring of the same caliber. I would hate to think that, but I am open to learning more about this gene, as I have seen quite a variation.
We are continuously building our collection and I am very focused on selecting the best of the best, this one has just confused me so far!
