    Adulthood

    Hey buddies,
    What morphs really hold there look as they mature. I notice as hatchlings ball pythons show a lot of their color and design.
    I notice adults maybe arenít being taken care as much but their colors fade and designs maybe fade as well.
    Which adults really keep their composure as they mature into adult hood?

    Desert ghost is pretty much the only morph that looks as good as an adult as it does as a hatchling. You can combine it with whatever morphs you like and it will still hold true. For example a desert ghost pastel it still gorgeous bright yellow and jet black as an adult.

    I also say desert ghost, they look really good as adults and keep their color nicely. I'd also say the fire gene is a good one too, both are enhancing genes and work well with other genes in the mix.

    Everything changes there is not a single mutation that will keep it's color (unless you buy a white snake and even than it will depend on which BEL you buy) now if you want something that gets better with age you want the following genes to be involved in your combo.

    Fire
    OD
    YB
    Desert Ghost
    Hypo

    I think an ultramel is just as great as an adult as a baby

    I swear Pastel ghi adults hold the bright yellow color better than most pastel combos.

    Definitely ghost (hypo) and desert ghost are nice enhancers.

    Some pieds stay super bright as adults, others fade a lot to brown. I have one of each, a super bright orange pied adult and a duller brownish pied adult.

    Ultramel get better with age. As babies they are much darker and as an adult they are amazing.

    I'm putting in a vote for Banana gene-- they get BETTER with age as they develop those cute freckles.
    Lots of pets, all loved and well-cared for: 2 BP's, 1 ratsnake, 1 panther chameleon, 2 ferrets, 1 hedgehog, 2 cats, 1 dog, and a chicken.

    I agree with banana but I prefer them when you put lesser in with them and actually get rid of the black spots. I love the clean look.
