Just did a 5 dreamsicle photo session with the intention of doing it halloween themed with pumpkins but I could not get these guys to cooperate for any group shots outside of the holding tub. I also need a different (not so close) lens and larger pumpkins. Oh well! In the photos are two 2019 Pastel Dreamsicles (a boy and a girl, produced by Justin Kobylka) and three Dreamsicle girls (produced by Garrick DeMeyer). The male, who is on the top wrapped around the bunch in the tub photo, weighed in at 730 grams today will be going into the breeding program very soon. He also shed yesterday and pulled up some incredible yellows. Quality pastel lavenders seem to pile on lots of yellow around the 700-800 gram mark. He definitely kicked up a notch with this last shed. Fingers crossed he’s a good breeder for me in my first ball python breeding season. The pastel dreamsicles are half siblings (different moms) and the dreamsicles all have different moms and may or may not have the same dad.
The one photo I got before they all squirmed away.

Standard baby dreamsicle vs pastel yearling dreamsicle close up comparison. Same (male) pastel dreamsicle (larger one), two different dreamsicles. Top photo is the most contrasty girl from Garrick but she is getting ready to go into shed. The one on the bottom has more of light orange fading, very cool pattern.
