I’m a newcomer to breeding ball pythons and in the process of investing in my first group of breeders. Maybe I’m way over-thinking it, but I’ve been researching the heck out of everything, and the one suggestion I keep hearing is buying quality animals and quality examples of the morphs I want to work with. I’m coming from a background of breeding fancy mice, where there’s an agreed standard, but I’m not finding anything as cut and dry for ball pythons
