Morph: Caramel Glow, ( Orange Ghost
X Caramel Albino ( T+)
Status: Proven Simple Recessive
from double het X double het
By Whom: NERD
new mutation marks the fourth designer ball
python mutation to be produced in captivity.
The Caramel Glow is the product of breeding
our caramel albino to an orange ghost to
make double hets; we then bred the hets
together to produce this single animal.
We fortuitously hit the 1 in 16 odds to
hatch out this new designer. At first I
was unsure that I had done it…I thought
that I might have just a very pale Caramel
Albino. It looked different, however, baby
ball pythons can change after their first
few sheds. Now after a year of shedding
& growing, this snake is magnificent.
Much paler than the Caramels, the lavender/purple
in this animal is very obvious & manifests
itself in a soft pastel shade. One distinguishing
characteristic of the Caramel Glow is her
ruby red eyes. As Caramels and Ghosts grow
they lighten and gain their color.
