CINNAMON_PASTEL

Cinnamon Pastel ball pythonGenetic Morph: Cinnamon Pastel, Black Pastel, Cinny
Status: Proven Co-Dominant
When:
2002
By Whom:
Graziani Reptiles, Gulf Coast Reptiles ( first to produce Super in 2002 )

Our line of Cinnamon Pastel ball python appears to have no black or yellow in it, just shades of brown, tan and white. Like the Pastel Jungle ball python its belly is pure white with no black flecking at all and instead of having a gold stripe through the top of the eye it has a silver stripe. As a juvenile, it had a pale stripe on its cheek starting behind the eye. As an adult its head is almost patternless. We have seen several other similar ball pythons in other collections that have yet to be proven but are believed to be the same mutation. At least one other breeder has proven his line and is calling them Black Pastels. They have also been called Red Axanthics. We have stayed with the name Cinnamon Pastel because we do not believe this animal to be Axanthic nor do we see any black in it.

We proved our line to be genetic in the summer of 2002 when we bred our wild caught Cinnamon Pastel male to 3 wild caught females. All 3 females laid eggs and out of 18 eggs we hatched 8 Cinnamon Pastels, which proved this mutation to be dominant. In 2 years we will try to prove it to be co-dominant by breeding Cinnamon Pastel to Cinnamon Pastel in hopes of creating a Super Cinnamon Pastel.

As of 2005..........the Cinnamon Pastel aka Black Pastel have both proved to be co-dom...the "Super Cinny" and "Super Black Pastel" are both dark chocolate colored patternless snakes. The "Pewter" from each line looks different to some degree...........Pewter being a Pastel x Cinny or a Pastel x Black Pastel...........the difference is not extreme in the Pewters..........also the "Supers" from each line are slightly different.........some say that one Super is darker than the other?.........more brown......more black.........

I have noticed many problems with the "Supers" from the year that they were first produced until now ( 05 ).........all that have been produced and that I have seen have face deformities....either elongated snouts.........thin cheeks and heads........a "turned up" snout.........kinks or twists..........I think to solve the problem with the Supers.........breeders need to NOT line breed to make the Supers...........bloodlines need to be mixed.

The "Super Pastel Cinny" aka Sterling Ball is from the Graziani Cinny Line..........the "Super Pastel Black Pastel" aka Silver Streak is from the Black Pastel line............these two snakes are "night and day" in appearance.............so I would think between the differences in the Supers, Pewters and "Super Pastel x Cinny/ Black" it's safe to say that the lines should be considered to do different things.
