I just hope the head wobble is minimal :crossed_fingers:

I’m still a little unsure as to what the visual difference is between bumblebee & firebee I’ve tried doing research but they show the same snakes for both :dizzy_face:

My initial thought was bumblebees are more yellow and firebees are more white but my research has made me confused.
Then I thought It is the colour fading down.

Can anyone recommend somewhere (that explains the difference) for me to read into this. Or can someone explain it to me?

I really want to understand ball python morphs a little more so I can ID snakes :crossed_fingers:

I found this. Which would make me say the one on the left is a bumblebee due to messier patterning and the one on the right is a firebee due to the cleaner patterning. You have them in person so what do you think! :blush:

I had watched this video and if it wasn’t for the head difference I would still be massively confused :dizzy_face:

Little one still hasn’t eat or shed but it has got a little bigger, haven’t weighed it yet as I don’t want to stress it out.

Our hides haven’t shown up yet so I made a temporary hide, although it prefers to sit on top :upside_down_face:

Two have shed, although I realize I only took a pic of one of them.

It’s not as light as mum, but I think this one is a firefly, correct me if I’m wrong.

Firebee
Bumblebee
Spider
Spider
Firefly

Not fully sure yet as depends on sex but firebee is a definite keeper regardless of sex :grin: I expect most will stay dependant how the second clutch of eggs turn out this year. We’re already working out next year’s breeders :blush:

Now the fun part, trying to get them to feed! :flushed:

Probably. It’s hard to choose but my husbands main goal is pieds… So we will have to see :grin:.

I got my bumblebee and firebee so I’m happy :blush: just need to convince husband that we should keep them booth… Might not be too hard :relaxed:

I got bumblebee and firefly confused when I first read this and thought spider to spider… that’s deadly.

You are correct, that is deadly and definitely not something I’d do :grimacing:
