The head of the Bang Ball Python tends to be a dark tan colour with a large strip headstamp from behind the eyes up until the neck. The usual yellow eyestripes of a Normal Ball Python are surrounded by a black outer ring.

The body of the Bang Ball Python is covered in extremely banded alien heads over the dorsal. Alien heads are completely free of “eyes” and express a high yellow colouration with heavy blushing found throughout the animal, especially around the dorsal. White flaming can be found up the sides of the alien heads, travelling up from the belly.

The belly of the Bang is usually completely clear of markings, expressing a high white set of scales.

The tail of the Bang Ball Python follows the same patterning and coloration as the rest of the body. Some may express higher concentrations of connected alien heads along the tail.

The photos that are being used are all super bangs. They Bang was originally farm hatched in Benin Africa. I received the original Bang male on 5-3-2014.


Just want to say, you have an incredible gene.


Hey :wave: :blush:

It looks like an awful lot of “power” packed into one single gene. I expect this gene to add to the industry the way that Clown did and still is after all this time.
