    ID my ball pythons morph

    Hello, just got a new ball python, had her for about a month now. I bought her from someone who was no longer able to care for her properly. Per her previous owner, she is some kind of "enchi bee" possibly "fire" as well? He was unable to recall her exact morph. I have only ever owned a Pastel and a normal in the past so I'm hoping someone here can shed some light on what kind of morph Pixel is Probably obvious but I named her Pixel because of the pixilated pattern she has on her body.
    As a second question, previous owner said she is about 5 years old but only measures 42" and weighed 540 grams when I got her, he claimed she was a very picky eater and would go on fasts all the time. I personally think based on the small box of extra frozen rats he gave me which couldn't weigh more than 30 grams she was pretty badly malnourished I have gotten her to feed weekly on a small this last month between 60-80 grams each and she seems to be doing much better. She is weighing in at about 667 grams (still much smaller/lighter than I feel an adult her age should be) Does anyone know if a ball pythons growth can be stunted by poor nutrition early in life or if she is likely to continue to put on weight and hopefully length as well as she continues to eat regularly?
    Thank you in advanced for sharing your insight and knowledge with me.

    I think your correct about being under fed. The spine is a little bit too proud. It will take a year or so but she’ll catch up.

    Good luck!

    Thank you, so far she has been gaining weight steadily on a diet of small rats weekly.

    She is a spider +/- something else
    not great with morphs, but that pattern and white belly are def spider
    No cage is too large - nature is the best template - a snoot can't be booped too much

    Thank you for the response! I was told she may have enchi in her as well as possibly fire but don't know for sure. Definitely a bumblebee

    She's really pretty. I love the pattern as well as her name.
