I received my first Ball Python about 18 months ago… a pastel as a rescue on craigslist. He was super underfed, and they had no idea what they were doing. They didn’t tell me it was pastel, but I sure thought so after I got smarter.
He fattened up and thrived in my daughter’s care. I become enamored with the hobby, and bought 7 snakes. We then bred this one to a Pinstripe last fall.
However, all of the babies look the same - and are not as yellow as I anticipated a lemonblast to be. So either I have a super pastel with low intensity offspring, a normal, or really strange odds. Is this male dad a pastel or Normal? What about the babies?
