    Re: rescued mystery ball

    Hi,

    Moved this to the "is this a morph?" section for you.

    We need good clear pictures of his whole body showing the pattern, his head showing the top of it and his belly pattern showing the sides meeting the belly.

    Some photos are with incandescent lighting and not the flash. I wanted to find some color swatches to compare him to but didnt have any handy, would that help? I have my opinions about what he is, but i dont want to reveal them yet and put everyone in the same mindset :-p

    You say you just came into ownership of him but you are taking pics of him with your other snakes....

    I'm not a pro by any means and don't want this question to come off incorrectly, but did you complete any sort of quarantine at all?

    oh, he is my most recent, ive had him for 3 months, but i just got my camera. I dont want this topic to turn into people chiding me, but i have 4 ball pythons. all of them are in a 40 gallon breeder and he is the biggest, the rest are the same size as my pastel. there are more hides than snakes in there, and ive kept them all separate for a month before i put any of them together and feed them separately.

    That one came in with mites and i treated him, other than that all of my balls seem healthy and never pass up a meal

    *facepalm*

    Good luck with him. I you feel he's a dinker, you can breed him out to see if it throws anything.

    No comments on anything else.
