    In the first generation only the orange dream enchi champagne will produce anything that isnt visually normal - but unless you bred him to a snake that was a visual ghost combo you wouldn't be able to tell if he carried the gene or not.

    Where's as, while they would look normal, every offspring from the pied would be 100% pied.

    Of the two on looks as a pet only snake I would probably choose the enchi orange dream champagne - but personal taste is just that.
    Thanks! Though the snake I'd be breeding him with is a pastel het pied, so I'd actually have a 50% chance of breeding pieds and/or pastel snakes. ^^

    Re: Help! I can't decide!

    Both are gorgeous, but I'd go for the Pied for 2 reasons. First is that you already have a Pastel (possible YB) Het Pied snake. So if you do decide to breed, you're going to have the possibility of at least Pieds and Pastel Pieds, with the chance of YB thrown in if your female proves out. And guaranteed 100% het Pied on everything else.

    Second reason is that, at least from my personal experience, even non-snake people think Pied ball pythons are cool. I pull out some of our morphs for friends and family and inevitably they're drawn to our Pied male.

    Just my two cents
    BALL PYTHONS: 1.0 Pied/Clark, 1.0 Pastel Vanilla Super Stripe/Sunny, 0.1 Dragon Fly/Buffy, 0.1 Pastel Vanilla Yellow Belly/Cher, 0.1 BEL (Mojave Lesser)/Arya, 0.0.1 Normal/Norm, 0.1 Cinnamon Enchi/Peaches, 1.0 Cinnamon Calico/Yoshi, 0.1 Pewter Het Pied & Lavender/Ariel
    BOAS: 0.1 Dumeril's Boa/Memphis, 0.1 BCL/Artemis
    CORN SNAKES: 0.0.1/Mushu
    CARPET PYTHONS: 0.1 Morelia bredli/Zelda, 0.1 Granite IJ/Bridget, 0.1 Caramel Diamond Jungle/Pixie

    Re: Help! I can't decide!

    Iíll start by saying Iím partial to pieds, so Iím voting with a bias (I have 2). That said, even my non-snake-loving friends are attracted to my pieds and my BEL. Almost without fail if Iím sharing snake pictures, they make more positive comments on the pieds. And that pied you found is a beauty. Iíd buy that in a heartbeat.

    Here's my two cents:

    It's YOUR animal. Get the one YOU want. If you're truly torn, wait til the expo, plenty of choices there.

    I didnít officially vote, but I give you my opinion. I have a Pied, very low white but I really like his whole look a lot. But Iím also fortunate to have a Hypo Super Enchi. And he definitely has some orange going on his sides. Heís almost three and his color seems to be just getting better with age. Itís like Craig said itís up to you. But I do know that Pieds hold there color very well, my Pied lost no coloration at all since I got him. Heís also a 2016 as well as my Hypo super Enchi. Maybe you should just get them both.
