    Question Ever seen anything like this?

    I've picked this girl a few months back after the original owner lost interest in reptiles. She's supposedly a '02 african import and I've showed her around and it got most people stumped. I'm giving a go to see if it's genetic this year but I wanted to see if anyone got a clue what she might be. Before anyone comment on this, yes she has multiple burns, they happened and were healed well before I aquired this ball.

    Re: Ever seen anything like this?

    well, i cant tell you what it is, but i definitly know i havent seen something like her before. it may be my eyes, but she seems to have a kind of redish-purplish undertone in her, even if im mistaken, ive never seen those colors before. if it were genetic, i wonder what it would look like with some fire or pastel in there

    I'd give her a go. It can't hurt to see if it's genetic. She is a stunner for sure.

    She's very nice, and definitely a reduced-pattern, if nothing else. (Is she in shed in the photo? Sort of looks like it).

    From what I have seen, reduced-pattern is heritable, though not a single gene, so she's a fantastic addition.

    I have never seen a snake like that! She is beautiful! I would definitely breed her to see what comes out! If she produces a son that looks like her, I would breed him back to her to see what you get!

    Already been locking with a pastel and a mojo for the last month. If nothing else it makes for a very exciting first attempt at breeding. I'm not expecting any miracles and I'm giving myself at least 3-4 years to confirm if there is any morph underneth it all.

    WingedWolfPsion, she is not in shed in thoses pictures, she just have this really hard to describe coloring.

    I would put her to something in the spider variety. I love reduced patterns in normals. I put every one of them i have to bees. If nothing more you get some sick looking babies
