BURGUNDY_BALL_PYTHON

Burgundy Ball PythonScientific Name: Python regius
Common Name:
Ball Python
Morph:
Burgundy
Genetics: Color Mutation - Simple Recessive ( RDR Line )

Well..........this is "another" one of those unproven mutations........... ...this type of ball python is also referred to as Chocolate Hypomelanistic. I have heard different breeders refer to these in both the name of Chocolates and Burgundies. I have been building quite a nice group of these burgundy balls...in hope of proving their genetics. I have heard about and seen ball pythons that were a two toned brown......a chocolate brown it was described. These two toned brown snakes did not interest me as being anything "special"........until one day I was sent a few pics of "Brick Red" ball pythons.......they were being called Chocolate Hypos....I was not interested until I saw the pics. When I viewed the pics I said......."that is not a chocolate hypo........its RED!!!!!" So I pursued a small group of adults that were available and all of them were sporting a base color of tan/cream ........and the "Brick Red" banding. They kinda have a "stone wash" look to them also????

These guys lack black totally!!!......and brown (as we know it in a normal ball) as well. The pics you will see here are all imports.....one of the females came in gravid and laid 9 eggs the same day I received her......all but one egg went bad immediately............on 4/28/00.......I cut the only surviving egg and the baby was alive and well!!!!!.....If this gene proves out??????........It will be a great morph to breed into the albinos.........this will create double hets for "Pumpkin" ball.......LOL........anyway....enjoy the pics......I consider these to be excellent examples of the Burgundy Ball morph?????? ........and yes I know that these are not the only ones out there......when I started showing off my pics.......Burgundy/Chocos started coming out of the wood work!

~~ Update I ~~......that egg that hatched from the above text.......was a girl!!!..........and since then I have produced hets for the Burgundy.........stay tuned!

~~ Update II ~~ I bred a het "Burg" male back to his "Burg" mom in 2003............4 babies were produced..............2 of the babies are "Burgundy Balls".........so the animals I'm working with have proved to be simple recessive.
