    morph or normals?

    hello! i wounder if the lighter colored of my two snakes could possibly be a black pastell? i guess the browner are a normal,but when i compared the other one with the pictures from the morph threads, i found that she looked an awful lot like a black pastell. what do you guys think?

    Both normals, Black Pastels are not lighter but darker

    Black Pastel for comparison (Both black pastels BTW)

    It's not as much the colors (they're just a bit on the dark side) as the pattern. You'll notice that the black pastels have the really wonky alien heads.

    Actually, it's the black squiggles around each alien head that is the dead giveaway of Black Pastel.

    Look very carefully at the snakes Derek posted. Notice that each light marking has a dark center like yours do, BUT they also have a dark squiggly line inside the light part that yours do not have.

    Check out the Morph Guide here: http://ball-pythons.net/forums/showt...3-Black-Pastel

    And here : http://www.ball-pythons.net/forums/s...-Black-Pastels

    See how these snakes have the squiggles ? That is the trademark for Black Pastels.
