Partho? Or just crazy odds

Pairing was calico firefly pos yb x pastel vanilla

Pastel Vanilla female laid a clutch of 8 eggs, 6 of which went full term and hatched without any problems. However, they all look like pastel Vanilla, and are all females. Yes, I’m sure, I quadruple checked to be sure they are all female.

I paired the male with the female 5 times, but never witnessed a lock. However, that male is apparently a quick shooter, as I only witnessed 1 other lock with a different female, and he clearly sired 2 other clutches. So it’s possible he just got the job done quickly.

But which is more likely? A partho clutch? Or just crazy odds of them all being female, all being pastel vanilla?

If it is a partho clutch, would the babies be fertile? I haven’t been able to find a whole lot of information about partho, so any info is welcome.

P.s. one of the babies hasn’t shed yet, but I posted the 5 that have.


If it was partho they would be super pastel super vanilla.

No and partho animals Generally have health issues and die young in ball pythons.

And welcome to the community!

Another observation fire and vanilla look extremely similar. And you have pastel on both sides.
