Pewter Pastel is the product of breeding
our wild caught Cinnamon Pastel male to
one of our captive female Pastel Jungles.
The clutch started to hatch
on June 27, 2003 & contained 4 Pewter
Pastels, 2 Cinnamon Pastels, 1 Pastel Jungle
& 1 normal. These animals are unbelievable!
We were not expecting something this drastic.
We expected the brown & burnt orange
of the Cinnamon Pastel combined with the
bright yellow of the Pastel Jungle to create
a fiery orange ball python. Instead it appears
that the Cinnamon Pastel removed all of
the yellow & the Pastel Jungle washed
out the remaining brown pigment, leaving
almost silver looking ball pythons.
confirms further that the Cinnamon Pastels
do not have any yellow pigment & may
be some form of dominant/co-dominant Axanthic
mutation. If the Cinnamon Pastel proves
to be co-dominant by producing Super Cinnamon
Pastels when bred together then the Pewter
Pastels will have been the first double
co-dominant mutation produced in captivity.
