    Pastel Butter Calico, I may need it

    There is something about this morph that keeps catching my eye. I love the butter/lesser gene and the combo on these ball pythons look great. I'm super curious to see how they would look as adults. Someone needs to take my mouse away because the temptation to get one is higher than ever. I'm I'm not careful, I'll buy one.

    These are the two I have found. Both from the same breeder. It's interesting that the second snek, I can see the calico more. Which do you like better?



    and the newest one he just posted

    Honestly, I like Nr. 1 better !!

    Its not even because of that "smudge" spot on Nr. 2. Most people would look at that as adding interest.

    After going back and forth between both pictures, I think its because I can see "calico" more so in the first one. It seems that the "light" sides go up further and then have a more pronounced and sudden change into the colored back. While Nr. 2 seems to have a more gradual fading from the light to the darker color, not quite as dramatic.

    That said, it simply could be the pictures. Pictures can be deceiving.

    But going by those pictures, I'd definitely pick Nr. 1.

    Come on, you know you want one. Just give in. Or else you'll be torturing yourself for a few days and then getting one anyway.

    The first one is what caught my eye honestly. I just keep coming back to her. I'm trying to hold out to the new year but I'm not sure if I'm going to make it.

    Haha. Considering I just sent an email asking about them, the betting pool wouldn't last long. While I would love to get one now, buying a ball python after the holidays would be better. But I might just fail and get number 1.

    *mutters to self, I'm adult. I can be patient when I want to be*
