I need help confirming morph of this beauty. I originally purchased a het pied male baby but before it being shipped the seller said it was injured by a heat mat and that he would upgrade me to a better snake. Out of 36 snakes this is my favorite, he said it was a fire but I think its too dark. Thanks in advance
Welcome to the community
Did they say just Fire or Mojave Fire?
Because that snake is 100% Mojave.
If not it seems a bit sketchy that the animal you chose got injured and then this one was mislabeled.
Snakes only get injured by their heating elements if they are being used wrong. So ask yourself: What else is this “breeder” doing wrong? Then ask for a refund and find someone else to buy from.
I purchased it 2 years ago and the breeder hasnt responded. The shipping bag says female fire.
I do see the resemblance, the vet said might be a black fire ball python, either way syes still my fave. Thanks
I don’t see Fire. From my end it’s a nice dark Mojave. And the Black gene is pretty rare, I’ve never seen one so I couldn’t say if that snake has it or not with confidence. But I’d call that a Mojave, no Black or Fire. I think the pattern would be more broken up if Black was in there.
I’m not sure about fire but Mojave is there 100%
No black eyed Lucy complex gene imo. But as others have pointed out appears to be mojave.
Thank you all for your info, I have a male pastave ill pair with her and see what they make. Thanks again, I appreciate it
I just purchased a male fire so I could make super fires and that’s when I noticed the difference
I see Mojave, no fire.
This animal is 100% NOT a Mojave. The colour is totally wrong and so is the belly
I might accept it as a Mystic but I think even that is a stretch
My inclination, however, is that this is a YB
Thank you, I didn’t think mohave either, maybe blitz or black pastel. Wilbanks has a black fire that looks like it.
Not a BlkPastel, the aliens do not have the markings inside of them that are indicative of the morph.
Maybe one of the lower-expression alleles in that group though… Huffman or something like that. Would have to breed to confirm that.
So I found the original post that says male het pied, the breeder can’t remember but said het pied when i sent him pics. Not sure I’m allowed to post a screenshot of the post.
