    If you bother to research juuuuust a little you'll easily find that information, but eh I'll start you out:

    I theorize that some ppl have gone all Faust-but-with-snakes and sold their soul to the devil to find and create all the hottest new morphs.

    For the rest of us, they are originally found as wild caught snakes in Africa. Sometimes its already a wild morph, many have been found. Others times its breeding the wild caught snakes and discovering they carry some special genes that make hot snakes. Sometimes already gravid balls are collected wild and their eggs hatched, known as "captive hatched," usually they turn out normals, but sometimes its something cool. New morphs are discovered periodically. The morphs just occur, random mutated genes, no one is totally sure why. Balls are a bit like the rainbow of the animal world: all the same species, but sooooo many different paint jobs.

    Just pick (base) morphs and research them, you can usually read about how that particular gene came to be. Albino was the first discovered.
    Balls:
    *0.1 Mojave *0.1 Pinstripe *0.1 Bumblebee *1.0 Super pastel butter *1.0 Mojave orange ghost *0.3 100% het orange ghosts *0.1 Pastel 50% het orange ghost *1.1 PE Lemonback fires *1.0 Fire *0.1 Pastel *1.0 Albino *0.1 Spider 100% het albino
    Other critters:
    *1.0 Anery motley corn *G. rosea tarantula *G. pulchripes *P. metallica *0.0.2 A. versicolor *C. cyaneopubescens *A. geniculata *B. smithi *B. boehmei *Nhandu chromatus *H. maculata *C. marshalli *1.0 Australian shepherd mix

    Ok that was a ton of genetic info, but I'm curious as to whether when you breed an albino to an albino (neither are paradox) if a normal can pop out and what kind of het would it be?

    That isn't possible. Albino x Albino would give you all Albinos.

    Thank you for clearing that up for me. I was just unsure if it could happen and what it would be called.

    A Lesson in Basic Genetics

    Wow! Thanks so much for this! I've had ball pythons a while, but recently started learning more in depth to start trying to breed them & this broke things down so easily!!
