When breeding pied reticulated pythons i noticed how drastically selective breeding can impact white percentage and distribution and I’ve been enjoying playing with this in pied ball pythons for a while now. In combos like spider pied, when most people believe spider pieds can only be super high white this is particularly interesting. I’ve been selectively breeding spider pieds as a side project since i started working with pieds. One group towards as much pattern as possible and one towards as little as possible producing many with only the head cap. With a little luck as always, this season is producing some very interesting results.
Here’s a nice banana spider pied with some proper pattern starting to come through. I can’t wait to cross some other genes into this combo.
And here’s a nice high white animal thats something between a coconut pied and a regular spider pied,
