GENETIC_GOLD_STRIPED_BALL_PYTHON

Genetic Gold Stripe Ball PythonScientific Name: Python regius
Common Name:
Ball Python
Morph:
Genetic Gold Stripe
Genetics: Pattern Mutation - Simple Recessive ( Bob Clark )

Here it is!!!...........the snake that ended the quest for finding and producing "Genetic" Striped ball pythons. The Genetic Striped ball python was proved by Bob Clark. I was able to purchase a young male from VPI in 2000..........(Tracy Barker had also been working with this line and produced from it "Clark's Line")............I was able to breed him out to produce heterozygous offspring in the 2001 season. As you can see..........this does not look like any of the "Gold Stripes" that we usually see for sale.........this is the "Real Deal"!!............I can not see another form of Striped ball python even coming close to the looks of this line.

This trait could not have been found and proven at a better time...........the ball python "nuts" needed this snake bad!!!! This is what a Striped ball python should look like............a mostly full dorsal stripe with little to ZERO pattern on the sides...........they are variable in the stripe and side pattern..........but over all..........when you look at one...........all you think is STRIPE!!!! I like to think of them as "5 striped" ball pythons........there is the golden dorsal stripe.........the two darker stripes on each side bordering the main dorsal............and the golden brown sides. The combinations of this snake are exciting to ponder.............An Albino or Axanthic Striped ball python will be outrageous!!!............like I said earlier...........this is a "worthy" trait to put a ton of time in producing double hets!..............The Striped ball python will help make new "designer mutations"...........and I'm all over it!

In a pic below, he is breeding one of several normal females in 2000 and 2001....she and others produced het for striped ball python babies..............I will be breeding the Stripe into the Albino line first for the 2002 season............oh'..........the double hets........:)
