    First Ball Python - Albino Mojave

    Finally introducing my Albino Mojave boy! I can't seem to do his colours justice with my phone camera.

    This is Noodle—his full name is "Bill Noodle Nython" because we couldn't decide whether to call him "Bill Nython the Ball Python" or "Noodle" so now he's kind of a weird mix of both but we mostly call him Noodle.

    He's around 5 months old and 144 grams (up from 131 grams at his last weighing but he does have a whole mouse in him!). I've had him for about a month now and he has been amazing. He's so gentle and curious. Noodle is a great eater, strikes every time and has never refused a meal, and he had a perfect shed this week so here are some photos of him with his shiny new coat of paint

    I've looked all over the internet and I can't find any photos of what an Albino Mojave looks like grown up so it'll be fun seeing how he changes as he grows.

    Wow Wow Wow!! i think u have something special there. i love Mojo's and i love Albino's. your Noodle has amazing blushing, so it's really high yellow. but the really krazy thing is that his pattern is like reversed. it's white instead of yellow! like how did that happen? do u know what his parents were? where did u get him?

    IMO u have an amazing BP and i am really jealous. amazing and congratulations!

    Thank you so much!! I don't understand BP genetics very well but that's really cool! I didn't even realize he was an inverted albino until you mentioned it, thought that was just how Albino Mojaves look I feel so lucky to have him!

    I don't know what his parents were but I may just have to send the breeder an email to ask now because I'm curious. He is from Henry Piorun Reptiles. Henry is a great breeder, really cares for his animals and he only sells snakes that are healthy and eating well. I believe two snakes from the same clutch (a Lesser Albino female and Albino Mojave male) are still available by the way.

    ah that breeder is in Canada tho! butt in British Columbia, prob 3-4hours from me. butt costs and paperwork for border crossing is prohibitive.

    anyways i've only even seen reverse colors only once one other time in an Albino Mojo. here it is - an adult female at about 12:37 of the vid from the breeder here: https://ball-pythons.net/forums/show...hon-Collection the lighting is bad in the vid, but i better pix of the that girl and she was really pretty.

    anyways i would def try to find out who/what are the genes of the parents to your gorgeous boy.

    Re: First Ball Python - Albino Mojave

    Yeah importing snakes is a huge hassle and very expensive unfortunately!

    Wow that's cool, that Albino Mojave in the video is very pretty! Nice pale colours. Seems like the inversion is pretty rare, other Albino Mojos I found on Google have orange patterns on white.

    I did notice something interesting which is that there are some (seemingly more common) inverted Lesser Albinos look kind of similar to mine (except no Mojave key markings) like these:
    http://nbkreptiles.com/portfolio-items/albino-lesser/
    http://www.worldofballpythons.com/fi...lesser/005.jpg

    I don't know much about genetics so going off a wild guess here but could one of the parents having the Lesser gene contribute to the inversion?

    his parents may have Lesser, but he didn't inherent that gene - otherwise he would have been an all white BP w/ red eyes.
