He/she is over four years old, got it off craigslist. About 3’6" long. Unsure if my photos are good enough. IG: b_22_wess (I post every few days of the snakes to my closest friends story)
Welcome to the forums and congrats on what looks like a well started noodle~
What exactly are you looking to ID? They definitely are albino.
If it’s sex, unfortunately ball pythons can’t be sexed by the length of the tail or size of the spurs. If you have a breeder or reptile vet or shop nearby you can ask them for help. The most popular way is by ‘popping’, but ‘probing’ is also possible if the person is experienced enough.
Looks like a normal albino although i’m not that good with identifying morphs but i’ve looked at some pictures and the pattern looks very similar the only other one i would guess is maybe spider but I’m assuming just a normal albino
Looked at an albino spider it’s definitely just a normal
i was just seeing if anyone had any sort of idea what type of morph it could be. albino, no doubt. it may just be a common albino. i know the females get larger than the males, ive had this one for about four years, so it has to be a minimum of five years old. it was already a good two and a half feet when i got it. i never knew the sex, so i just gave it the name of one of my favorite Office characters, “Kevin”
the pictures is just one snake, “Kevin”.
I meant other pictures
Welcome to the forum @b_wess! Very nice BP you have there! Whatever you are doing looks like the right thing because “Kevin” looks healthy!
Come back soon because there is always something going on here and lots to learn!
random question, but have you ever cleaned an enclosure, replaced bedding, and then fed any of your snakes in the same day? my schedule is all random, and everything seems to be lining up on the same day…
Yeah, but it won’t hurt to wait a day or two either. Altering their feeding schedule by a matter of a day or two is so inconsequential in the scheme of things
yeah i know it isnt a big deal, but i have such a labor intensive work day, that i usually just get home, eat, shower, sleep. so i try to do things on the weekends. but i havent been keeping track of feeding and cleaning, and i just realized i am a couple days away from both of those, so i was trying to see if i could kill two birds with one stone this weekend.
Removing the animals to do an extensive cleaning and then putting the animals back may be a little stressful for them so I agree with @chesterhf on this to wait and feed them a day or two later.
That being said, you can always try it your way and see if it affects their feeding response. If they still eat then great but if not your feeding schedule will still be off….
Good luck @b_wess Brad and have a blessed day!
Okay new challenge for yall. I’m thinking of picking up this female i foud for sale. can anyone help me ID?
offhand guess is a lesser pastel.
I also believe from the pics that female is a pastel lesser
thank you guys. i had to pass on her. my girl told me i had already collected enough snakes for one year. so i bought myself a new golf bag instead
lol😂 that is a beautiful snake though
Hi and welcome
Its a nice albino.
They can vary a lot.
Here are three of my basic albinos.
Adding UV though might help pick up if there is something else in it.
Here is the last snake with UV to show how UV can pick up more, but no more than albino in this one.
thats a really cool trick! one of the spots looks like a winking alien hahaha. Thank you!
Are there any particular subtle markings to look for when trying to determine if there are other genes in play on one that looks like a single gene albino since their markings vary so much from one to the other? For example, is it possible, without knowing parents’ genetics, to identify a mahogany albino or yellowbelly albino? I do have an albino girl and have no reason to believe she is anything more than that but I would love to learn more about recognizing subtleties that aren’t obvious to my amateur eye in morphs that tend to vary so much in looks? Banana comes to mind as well…
