Lets see them pretty ball python eyes of all colors.
Ball Python eyes are cool.
Here is one of my snakes, I’m sure you all have better pictures,
My beautiful BEL Super Lesser female adult. :-
Note: i did a search (with my limited skills ) and this topic did not show up under ball pythons,
If its here already. staff please feel free to move my post to the original thread.
A few of my favorites! Eyes are my favorite to photograph
Wow. that’s double my collection just in eye pictures. Thats some beautiful ball python eyes.
I only have a super banana, no normal bananas. Does any one know if red eyes are just in super bananas or any banana?
A lot of bananas have a red tint because the gene messes with the melanin of the body so the eyes are effected as well.
The super banana would likely be affected more so.
Banana’s have dark red pupils, it’s more noticeable in certain lights. Banana is an albino-type morph
@steelserpents and @phantom_hatchery thanks guys, that makes so much sense.
Here are some of my green eyed snakes some with some orange too.
P.S @phantom_hatchery Doesn’t matter, but is your profile picture your art or preference of art, its nice and my style too.
It’s a photo that I edited myself. Thanks!
My gorgeous leopard mojave enchi dh ghost pied whos sadly pet only because of her other eye being much smaller. Leopard mojaves really have the best eyes
Ahh, shes beautiful is the other eye as small as a lesser pied can be for example.
Personally I like bigger eyes too like super lesser. My super lesser has slightly bigger eyes, she seems to be able to see better than the others too (Just opinion)
I don’t even mind bug eyes in them, but I don’t like it when their head above the eyes is bulbus.
Thank you! I’m so disappointed I can’t ethically breed her. Her babies would have been beautiful. This is her other small eye
I would love her as a pet like you.
But would it be genetically carried over? I understand the moral issue, but just interested it would carrie over to hatchlings. I guess you think it may.
It could have been a fluke or an incubation anomaly. I don’t know to be honest.
Maybe more input would help me understand.
Time to try to bring in someone else how has helped me in the past i guess
@t_h_wyman opinion please?
or anyone else, Eye anomalies like this. any thoughts.
Most likely it’s an incubation error, but I don’t want to risk it passing onto her offspring. Even though it’s likely an incubation error, I don’t know how it’s affected her. Did it affect her genetically or just physically? I’d rather not test it out
Yes, I get that and respect it.
She seems fine, if she is eating and doing every thing else well, then she should have a good quality of life.
My father was war Blinded. But he had a good life. At least she is not blind.
Bad husbandry with multiple retained eye caps is what I would see as reducing quality of life, not one eye smaller than the other.
She’s doing amazingly! Never missed a meal and is SUPER enthusiastic during feeding time
I would be more than happy with any pet like that
A localized physical birth defect caused by an issue with incubation cannot be passed on to offspring, that would be Lamarckian which has been resoundingly disproven.
It should be safe to breed this animal, there is no reason to expect she will produce defective animals. That said, I fully understand the wish not to and do not criticize should that be the path you opt for
Beautiful. That shines like a crystal (which I collect.) Nice.
Edit: wait, I collect crystals, not eyes
