 Here are some pics of the newly hatched Magpie Red Blood pythons! With this clutch we now know that the amount of black spots on the back can be variable!

Two of the three of these 2010 babies have essentially no black spots on the back! This baby has a small single black spot. Last year all three had strong black spots on the back!

 Talk about amazing change! The transformation of a baby to a year old snake in this morph is fantastic! They just get filled with color! The pink, and yellow colors get so vibrant! I am stunned by these snakes and can't imagine what they will look like when they are 4' long!

These two siblings show the variation in the pattern with one having a series of black spots on the back and the other having none. I was surprised to see this since last year all three babies had spots!
