FIRE

"Fire Ball" in EnglandGenetic Morph: Fire Ball, het Black Eyed Lucy
Status: Proven Co-Dominant
When:
2003
By Whom:
Eric Davies
aka Rick Page

Below text is taken from the "Black Eyed Lucy" page.....

The Black Eyed Leucistic ball python..............what else is there to say.........this gorgeous White Snake was produced In England from breeding two "aberrant" African Imports together........the genetics are not "in stone" as of yet ( 2004). The "aberrant" parents when bred together produce normals, aberrants ( like the parents ) and Black Eyed Lucys...........the "aberrant" snakes have been called "Fire Balls".............The "Fire Ball" is what is believed to be the heterozygous form of the Black Eyed Lucy ...........basically saying that "Fire x Fire" will produce in four eggs............1 normal..........2 Fires ( heteros ) and one Lucy ( homo ).........Eric and Mike over in England will be ironing out the possibilities of this mutation in the years to come........does "Fire x Fire" produce Lucys consistently across the board?

As of 2005..........the Black Eyed Lucy is the actual "Super Fire"............the Fires being the "hetero form"...........notice the "spot" on the top of the Fire Ball's head............that "spot" and the rusty hypo color are Fire Ball traits.............."Goodness Gracious .............Great Balls Of Fire!!"
