Base Morph Incomplete Dominance (Co-dom)


The Cinnamon Ball Python is an incomplete dominance (co-dom) mutation that alters both colour and pattern. The name Cinnamon comes from the deep reds that are on show on top of a deep brown (almost chocolate like) background.


Head: The head of a Cinnamon Ball Python is a dark shade of brown that fades towards the neck. Lips usually display bright pink/white scales.

Body: The body of the Cinnamon Ball Python is usually dominated by large chains of “alien heads/keyholes” either connected or very closely beside one another. Where yellows and orange of a Normal Ball Python are, the Cinnamon expresses various shades of brown and cream.

Belly: The belly of a Cinnamon Ball Python can shows light patterning and mild spotting along its edges, over bright white scales, however, usually it is clear of markings.

This should help :yum:


One of the banes of this hobby is that most of the pics you are going to see of these animals are baby/juvenile pics. That is because, by and large, the colour tends to fade and mellow as they undergo their ontogenetic change at around 12-18 months of age. Your animal has undergone that change, which likely accounts for why it seems “cooler” in tone than the pics you looked up
