    Morph Insight/Questions!

    Hey guys! I adopted my beautiful girl, Nagini, recently! She's 3 years old and healthy and happy!

    I was trying to figure out what morph she is as her previous owner didn't tell me. Wasn't a breeder, just kept as pets. I am pretty sure she is a Pinstripe (please correct me if I'm wrong), but then I read somewhere that Pinstripes only have Black eyes. She has Green eyes, which I read is a Spider morph gene? What do you guys think? She could be mixed, perhaps? I'm sure it's probably almost impossible to tell without knowing her breeding (?).

    HOWEVER, my only concern was that I heard Spiders are notorious for neurological problems. She does not have a head wobble in the slightest or any difficulty striking while eating (she actually eats like a machine and seems completely adept at it). If she did have a touch of Spider, could these neurological issues come up later on? Or would they be present already? I just want to make sure she is safe!

    P.S. She is a little underweight, she was a bit underfed by last owner I think (never switched her to small rats), so I'm working on fattening her up, don't worry. And, she seems to think she is a hair accessory and likes to intertwine in my hair and perch like that, so I let her. I don't force her into any of these positions, she does it on her own (how cute!). During handling about once a week, I just stay perfectly still like a warm tree and let her do her thing so she can stretch and enjoy herself without letting her fall!

    Let me know what you think! Thank you!

    I stink at morph ID, but green eyes are typical of pastels. I'm thinking pastel pinstripe. But, again, morph ID is far from my strong suit

    Most likely: Pinstripe
    Also possible: Spinner (due to low white on the sides barely visible in the photos)
