Slack Line Blood PythonSlack Line Blood Python

 #1 Here is a new Blood Python morph, we are calling it the "Slack Line" Blood. It sure surprised us when we hatched 5 of these in a clutch! This is one strange mutation-it might be that there are 3 levels to this mutation, and honestly if you breed these to each other I wouldn't be surprised if are 4!

#2 Here is a new Blood Python morph we are calling the "Frostbite" Blood. Ryan Young gave this snake it's name and thinks it looks like the hypo Burmese Pythons that make the leucistics. Time will tell!

These babies look like the male Frostbite. In the clutch were 6 normal Bloods for a total of 12 babies in the clutch. All are also 100% het for Red albino. I can't wait to see them mature!

#3 The "Magpie" Blood Python, Dave gave this new morph it's name, because it reminded him of the bird, which is Black and White. The Black on these snakes is jet black! The diamond markings on the head and large diamond on the throat are awesome! The snakes have a tinge of red on the body-it will be interesting to see how they mature. Is it a "super" Golden Eye? Maybe it is, maybe it isn't! The parents were two wildcaught animals. We identified the male as a Golden Eye and the female we labeled the "Carmine" Blood. Are they extreme versions of the same thing? Are they something different? There were three "Magpies" in the clutch and they are identical. There was a normal Red Blood in the clutch, and there were Golden Eye's in the clutch. No snake looked 100% like the Carmine mom. ??? Whatever these are, they are amazing!

You could have knocked me over when I saw these babies!! They are clones of the dad!! The male was bred to a Red Albino Blood and there were 4 of these babies and 6 normals in the clutch, all 100% het for Red Albino. Clearly this is a dominant. What could a super possibly look like?! The heads and sides on these babies are unreal! There is so much going on you don't know where to look first! Dave calls these the "Black-nose" Blood, but we are open for someone to come up with a name for these guys!!
