Species: Ball Python
Name of Gene: Bambino
First produced by whom: Millz Thakkar - Reptile Pit
Year First Produced: 2019
Genetics Type (Incdom/Codom/Recessive/Polygenic/etc): Incdom
In complex with other genes?: Unknown
Other names/aliases for it?: Bambino
The original male has a rich chocolate dark background which fades from dark brown on the top of the dorsal to light tan towards the belly. This is a heavily pixelated morph with crazy pixelated alien heads and a broken dorsal stripe.
Appearance; What it does/looks like?
- Head: Runs from dark brown on tip of nose, running into lighter brown as it moves down to the speckled neck
- Body: Heavily pixelated with a dark background colour, broken or speckled dorsal stripe (depending on pairing e.g. heavy speckling on the Bambino Vanilla het Clown and Bambino Phantom Yellowbelly) with heavy blushing running up the side between the pixels
- Belly: Clear with speckling along the tram lines
- Tail: Dorsal stripe on tail and underside has some speckling
Related Genes: Nothing we know of
Proven: To what degree it is proven out to not just be polygenic? It’s not polygenic as we’ve produced several different combinations and also produced offspring from second generation Bambinos too
Unique: Why do you believe this is a new morph and not an existing one? The original male was found for me in Africa in 2012 and from my research, although there may be slight similarities with granite type genes, the Bambino is more pixelated and has delivered different results when paired with other morphs.
Problems: Any problems? None
History: The history behind its discovery? I purchased the original male from Africa, it appeared very different from anything seen previously. I paired him with a Purple Passion Yellowbelly in 2019 as he was not receptive to breeding prior to this, being a wild caught specimen. That produced Bambino Phantoms, Bambino Mojaves, Bambino Phantom Yellowbelly and Bambino Mojave Yellowbelly. The next breeding of this male was to a Fire Clown and this produced Bambino het Clowns and Bambino Fire het Clowns. This was the Fire Clown female’s first pairing and I didn’t realise she was carrying another gene and all the babies came out very different/funky looking.
The next pairing for this male was to Phantom Pin which produced Bambino Phantoms, Bambino Pinstripes and Bambino Phantom Pinstripes. Since then we have produced many other exciting Bambino combos. Next year we are hoping to find out if there is a super form of this gene in 2024
