What does Clown do to other genes?

And we’re back again for another round of me asking for pictures :wink:

This time it’s the Clown morph that’s taking center stage :clown_face:

Same lines as How Piebald reacts with and Next to a Normal for reference

Do you have a Clown combo AND a animal with the same combo minus the Clown?

Let’s say a Enchi Clown?
Do you also have a Enchi?

A Banana Leopard Clown?
Do you also have a Banana Leopard?

INTRODUCTION:

The first wild-caught Clown Ball Python had small dark tear markings beneath the eye that reminded Vida Preciosa International Inc, the original producer of the Clown, of tear drops often displayed by clowns, giving it the name.

VISUAL DESCRIPTION

Head: Compared to the clean dark head of a Normal Ball Python, the Clown is bright and busy, with markings showing above the lips, beneath the eyes and the crown of the head.

Body: The Clown Ball Python has a hugely reduced pattern with a thick dark brown dorsal stripe and only slight banding from the “alien heads” of a Normal. Patterns are crisp and clean, with less spots and smudges showing.

Belly: The belly of the Clown Ball Python is usually a clean with a yellow undertone running down the central scales and the outer edges showing faded spotting.

Tail: The tail of the Clown Ball Python is usually dominated by the thick dark dorsal stripe.
