Hi everyone, I have had other reptiles in the past that I grew up with but this is my first Ball Python and I am in love. I would like to know more about the genetics of my beauty. Also would like to know more about identifying if female or male. Please feel free to let me know.
To me it looks like a Mojave Pied with either pastel and/or mahogany. To sex your snake you should go to a specialist herp vet, reliable pet shop (not chain store), or expo and have someone experienced show you how to pop and/or probe.
Welcome to the community!! Did the person you purchased them from not give you any info? Appears to be mojave pied. Do you have any more pictures of it?
Concur with Pied Mojave
Unfortunately no they didn’t give me any info considering I saved this beauty from PetSmart. I don’t like pet stores that are big chains. I had to get this beauty out of the store.
The only problem with doing that is you’re just encouraging it. By “rescuing” them you’re just giving them more space and funds to buy more animals to put in those enclosures.
I agree it looks like Mojave Pied. When it gets old enough you can breed it to a Normal and find out the genes it has.
I agree thats why I don’t even like to go in there.
