    Harlequin?? Ive been told thats what he is but he doesnt look like anything Ive seen?

    So I thought I would reach out to the ball python community and see if anyone had any insight. I also attached a picture of him with one of my normal females so you can see the color difference.[IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG]

    Unless something has changed in the last few years, harlequin is just the word used to describe a random pattern mutation with a long stripe. It isn't usually genetic though.

    I'd still love to dink around with it though. I love the looks of those striped ones.

    Looks like a Harlequin. But the thing is, Harlequin BPs are not genetic. Just a funky normal. You could call it a Earthquakemegapoopy ball if you wanted , because its just a cool normal, and people want to toss a name on it. All in all, its one sweet lookin' norm.

    LOL I was actually going to ask if you wanted to sell him or maybe let me breed him to my female and I would give you a couple of the babies. Im actually living in Olympia WA rigt now for a while so im not too far from you It would be cool to maybe have him come over for a date! lol I cant wait to see what he produces with your normal! Im breeding her to my lesser this is a pic of him

    Yeah, the more I look at your girl the more I say they are identical! I really would at a min like to possibly breed them together if you weren't willing to sell. We would have to discuss it though but I don't think me taking a trip to Olympia is out of the question. I go up to Seattle from time to time for kicks. I do most of my breeding right now with a buddy of mine who has started his own company. so most of my stuff is over there at the moment. So no chance of you selling her?

    Yeah Ive searched all over trying to find something like her and he definitely looks like her a lot! I dont think Im interested in selling her right now but I will be going back to Alaska eventually so if I dont end up being able to take her I would be more then willing to sell her to you especially with that male you got!
    I was thinking about trying to breed her out of season to my lesser just because shes at a really healthy weight of 2680 grams and has never been breed but I havent decided yet
