    Lightbulb Assist in science project!

    Hello, i'm a high school science research student working on studying the cranial capacity of the normal and spider ball python.

    I am looking for as many photos of adult normal ball pythons and spider ball pythons head shots (taken with a penny for comparison) taken similarly to the diagrammed photo of the Nerodia clarkii taeniata (Atlantic Salt Marsh Snake) here (minus the C and F angles)

    Im looking for at least 6 of each type but the more the merrier. I will also be producing 3D printed skulls using the measurements taken from studying the photos, if you are willing to assist i would HIGHLY appreciate it!!

    Sounds like a cool project!

    Just for clarification, when you say normal, do you mean normal as in wild type "normal". Or does that include "normal" morphs not associated with head wobble?

    thank you! For the normal, i was looking at the typical, "run of the mill" ball python since i am focusing on the coloration morph Spider. The normal is sorta my control group.

    Ok, thank you. Unfortunately I can't help you. Neither of my BPs are normals or spiders.

    And just to help out, are you looking for single gene spiders?

    Good luck, I hope the project goes really well for you!!!

    Do you want single-gene spiders or are other genes in the mix ok? I have a bee, a spinner, and a fire spinner who could become models.

    Very cool sounding project, I can't help because I have an albino mojave BP, but I would love to see the results of your research if you're willing to share when you're done

    3D printing skulls sounds amazing, I wish I had access to 3D printers when I was in high school. It's always nice to see research on snakes since there isn't enough of that out there and they are so misunderstood!

    It DOES sound like a cool project...however, I have zero BPs these days, so I cannot contribute but I hope many others here will.
    Many friends in low places...
