Can anyone please help identify her morph?

Vet said she had never seen a ball python without black circles in the brown spots. Python is 28 years old if that’s helpful.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Welcome to the community! Better pictures would help but looks like a wild type

Thanks. Is it rare for wild types to not have black spots in their brown parts?

Sometimes, there’s a lot of natural variation


Not claiming to be expert, just a few ideas.
Totaly agree with what chesterhf said, but its not common, and possibly might be something else in it.
Either way, enjoy the variation it has.
, As saleengrinch says more pictures would help. Also its old so may have gotten darker with age, which might have obscured any contrast,
But I see a few remints of eyes in the alien heads, Maybe a UV picture might show any hidden eyes/patterns better. Just an idea.

Also welcome, and have fun here.

As an example of the variation in wild-types, including a greatly reduced expression of eyes in the alien heads


It’s likely a normal. It isn’t unlikely for snakes not to have the eyes in the alien heads. If you look through all of the normal ball pythons in the marketplace you’ll see a lot of variation.


This is our wild type girl. Unknown breeding from a local serpentarium in our area. Very pretty coloring. Even has really dark belly pattern all the way from top to bottom.
