Might have to try again outside on a warm cloudy day.
If thats a bad picture I can’t wait to see a good one! That’s a very pretty girl. What morph is she?
So gorgeous! Black axanthic?
thanks! black axanthic
Yes very pretty! Deep iridescent black to her! I haven’t the chance to see black ax in person is there a big difference in quality of the morph? Such as some axanthic start very nice and grey then some brown out. Do most adult black axanthic end up this dark and pretty, or is there a big range of quality in this particular morph?
Great pic in my opinion, by the way!
Yes they vary quite a bit if it really even is the same gene in all bax. Some speculate that there is a line bred element to them and that’s why many examples from 10+ years ago are darker than many animals being produced today where [vis x vis] may produce darker babies than [vis x het] or [het x het]. More to be explored with this one
Oooh, she is lovely! How old is this beauty?
Now you’ve got me curious. Do you have pics of this beauty’s parents?
Thanks for the info! Seems like a morph with great potential and the more we know the better!
Gorgeous girl you have there! I love love love the dark morphs. Imo the darker the better!
Love BlkAx. I’ve seen some that turn out nearly all black. Combined with some other morphs I’m sure there are some awesome combos to make the “IMG Motley BP” lol (Boa that becomes iridescent pure black as an adult for anyone not in the know on boas)
Oh wow, she’s really beautiful. How old is she? I generally haven’t been that impressed by most axanthic ball python morphs, as it seems so many of them “brown out” with age and end up looking very much like normals. But this girl is gorgeous! From reading the comments here, it sounds like it depends a lot on the type of axanthic, and also the specific lines within that axanthic morph, yes? Did she hatch out dark like that, or has she darkened with age? Do you expect her to get any darker?
If I ever get into ball pythons, I’d love to have one that looked like this girl!
What’s her name?
That would be one of my dreams fulfilled!
That’s one I would LOVE to have!!!
