PIEBALD_BALL_PYTHON

Piebald Ball PythonScientific Name: Python regius
Common Name:
Ball Python
Morph:
Piebald
Genetics: Simple Recessive

Peter Kahl and I live very close to each other, and are good friends, so I have been fortunate enough to see this project materialize into something huge!! When I first met Pete, he had started producing hets for Piebald but he did not know if it was an inheritable trait at the time. I was feeling pretty "gutsy" and decided to purchase a pair of hets before the trait was proven to be genetic.

Well............we all know it is GENETIC now and it is one of the best investments I ever made. What can I say.....the Piebald speaks for it self!!!.........They are totally variable as to how much white will be one their bodies...........thats what makes them so awesome!!!............No two are alike. Some people like the "high white" Pieds...............and some people like the "low white" Pieds..........I say all Pieds are gorgeous!!!!!!!!!

I like the "High White" Pieds the best............but I will say that the "Low White" ones are unreal too!!............the Low White Pieds have pattern that is a "new mutation" on it's own...........they look like "Jungle Stripes"..........with small amounts of white........

I know that Piebalds are on most ball python enthusiast's "wish lists" and they should be...........the Piebald is just breath taking............thats all I can say........:).............and I look forward to hatching them each and every year I breed for them.

In 2002 I bred a Piebald male to a Lavender Albino female........this produced 2 males and 4 females that are Double Het for Lavender Albino Pied!!!............I can't wait to see that!

You will see in the pics below a ball python with a white patch near his tail...........this is a snake that was imported as a Piebald............I bought him...........I'm not sure what he is???...........if he is a "Ringer"..........he just may be the best I have seen.............I will devote a small project to him to see if he is indeed a very very low white Piebald???...........I seriously doubt he is..........but it is worth a shot.

I can't think of any mutation that should not be combined with the piebald?
