Python Regius

Ball pythons are one of the most well known and commonly kept of all pythons. This small to medium sized African snake’s popularity has grown dramatically within the last few years, due to their gentile nature, the introduction of new mutations from the wild, as well as the continued development of a multitude of new designer morphs. Ball pythons have certainly secured themselves a future in an ever-expanding industry and hobby for years to come. On average, ball pythons measure 3-6 feet, with some females occasionally exceeding this length.


Here are the morphs we are currently working with:



Banana: Co-dominant gene, bred to a normal reproduces itself with an average of 50% of a given clutch, representing the visual mutation, the other 50% being normal looking. Bananas are probably the most sought after mutation on the market today. They are one of the most amazing ball pythons to make combos with, and Banana combos have to be seen to be believed.


Enhancer Ball: Confirmed to be simple recessive in 2010 and proven in 2011 by breeding Double Het to Double Het. When bred to a normal, produces normal looking offspring that will be heterozygous for that mutation. We are working with a new African Import line of this mutation, every once in a while Ole Africa offers up something amazing and incredible, our WC Import Matriarch truly is a sight to behold! (See here in our Gallery section) Our long term project goals with this project is to produce some phenomenal looking combinations with this new mutation, we have already succeeded in producing a visual double recessive Genetic Stripe Enhancer and they are totally awesome. Now imagine what this Enhancer gene will do to all your yellow, high contrast and patterned mutation projects!






Super Stripe: Are a combination of Co-dominant genes in this case those of the Specter and that of the Yellow Belly. Super Stripes will reproduce the mutations of the parent animals (Specters & Yellow Belly) including normals, Super Stripes are still a relatively new and exciting combination that are full of potential.

New Super Stripe


Pastel Jungle: Co-dominant gene, bred to a normal reproduces itself with an average of 50% of a given clutch, representing the visual mutation, the other 50% being normal. We are working with the Graziani line of pastels, our breeding stock consists of several female pastel jungles and we are also very fortunate to have 2, F3 Pastel jungle males. F3’s are produced by first breeding pastel to pastel, to create F2’s and then breeding F2 to F2 to produce the most amazing looking F3 pastel jungles.


 

Super Pastel Jungle:  Are considered to be a Dominant gene, basically they are a Pastel jungles at their best, intensified in both colour and appearance but mostly on a genetic level, when bred to normal animals they will produce only Pastel jungles, theoretically.  They are also the key to many other outstanding designer morphs.



Killer Bee:
Basically a Super Pastel Spider, everything you like about the Bumblebee and more. The combo power for this mutation is amazing; imagine breeding to any Pinstripe or your other favorite mutations, the results will be stunning.


Spider:
Dominant gene, bred to a normal reproduces itself with an average of 50% of a given clutch, representing the visual mutation, the other 50% being normal. We are working with an amazing line of spider ball. If you like a crisp clean high contrast barbwire pattern on a bright golden background, with high white side markings. We may have what you are looking for.


New HoneyBee - Hypo Spider



Bumble Bee:
 
Are a combination of Co-dominant genes in this case those of the Pastel jungle and that of the Spider.  Bumblebees are also capable of producing three co-dominant mutations when bred to a normal ball python.  They will reproduce themselves as well as the mutations of the parent animals (Pastel jungle & Spider) including normals, breed them to other mutations and the combinations are endless.



Lesser Platinum:
Co-dominant gene, bred to a normal reproduces itself with an average of 50% of a given clutch, representing the visual mutation, the other 50% being normal looking. Lesser’s are a jewel in any ball python collection.  Our line of lesser was produced from a lesser to lesser sibling pairing. We selected our lesser for his incredible pattern and extreme amount of blushing.



Super Lesser:
Another of BEL's or (Bleu Eyed Lucy) are a Dominant gene, basically also one of the solid colored ball mutation with white crystal appearance, when bred to normal animals they will produce only Lessers. They can offer double power in producing many other outstanding new designer morphs.


New Super Lesser



Mojave:
Co-dominant gene, bred to a normal reproduces itself with an average of 50% of a given clutch, representing the visual mutation, the other 50% being normal. Our Mojave was produced from the Snake Keeper line, he was chosen after spending several hours looking over many potential future breeders. We selected him for his incredible pattern and blushing.


Super Mojave:
Or BEL short for ( Bleu Eyed Lucy ) Are a Dominant gene, basically another of the solid colored ball mutation with a suttle hint of color and a beautiful lavender head, when bred to normal animals they will produce only Mojave's. They are also the key to many other outstanding new designer morphs.

New Super Mojave



Black pastel: Co-dominant gene, bred to a normal reproduces itself with an average of 50% of a given clutch, representing the visual mutation, the other 50% being normal. We are working with an import new RegiusCo line of Black pastel, with which we hope to create some awesome super Black pastels.



Super black pastel: Are a Dominant gene, basically they are the black ball mutation at their best, when bred to normal animals they will produce only Black Pastels, theoretically. They are also the key to many other outstanding new designer morphs.


New Super Black Pastel




Cinnamon:
Co-dominant gene, bred to a normal reproduces itself with an average of 50% of a given clutch, representing the visual mutation, the other 50% being normal.  We are working with the Graziani line of cinnamon, with which we hope to create some awesome pewter’s and super cinnamons as well as many other exciting combinations.



Super Cinnamon:
Are a Dominant gene, basically another of the solid colored ball mutation at their best, when bred to normal animals they will produce only cinnamon's, theoretically. They are also the key to many other outstanding new designer morphs.

New Super Cinnamon


Black Pewter: Are a combination of Co-dominant genes in this case those of the Pastel jungle and that of the Black pastel.  Black pewter’s or Pewter’s are capable of producing three co-dominant mutations when bred to a normal ball python.  They will reproduce themselves as well as the mutations of the parent animals (Pastel jungle & Black pastel) including normals.  This is the morph that produces the silver streak and the black super cinnamons.



Black Sterling Pastel:
Basically a Super Pastel Black Pastel, everything you like about the Black Pewter and more. The combo power for this mutation is amazing; imagine breeding to any or all of your other favorite mutations, the results will be outstanding.

Pied:
Simple recessive gene, when bred to a normal, produces normal looking offspring that will be heterozygous for that mutation. We are working with both pied and het pied balls. Our het pied females come to us from The Snake Keeper line of pied, these girls were produced by their 90 % import high white male. We were particularly interested in these girls, first for their new blood potential being produced by an import male, second these were all rat feeders as well. Our male is an exceptional high white well-proportioned example of a pied, we believe they will produce some unbelievable pied balls for us.


Hypo
(ghost): Simple recessive gene, when bred to a normal, produces normal looking offspring that will be heterozygous for that mutation. We are working with 3 different lines of hypo, 2 are imports making them new blood lines of hypo. They are represented with a yellow hypo male and a blue hypo female. Both are incredible, we also have one of the best Nerd’s line orange hypo males we've seen, this guy glows, and has proved to be an amazing breeder.


Ivory:
The product of breeding Yellow belly to Yellow belly and considered co-dominant, a mutation that is truly a beautiful and sought after ball python morph. When bred to normal females will produce yellow bellies AKA het Ivories but when bred to other proven morphs, will also create some of the most incredible and stunning mutations. One of the many new co-dominant mutations that will create unbelievable crosses.



 

Yellow Belly:  Co-dominant gene, bred to a normal reproduces itself with an average of 50% of a given clutch, representing the visual mutation, the other 50% being normal.  AKA het ivory when bred to each other will produce the beautiful IVORY ball, a very sought after ball python morph.  We are working with the Snake Keepers proven line of yellow bellies; their potential for contributing to new and exciting ball python morphs is still mostly untapped.




Albino:
Simple recessive gene, when bred to a normal, produces normal looking offspring that will be heterozygous for that mutation. Again here we are working with the Graziani line of high contrast albino. Our male is a 2002 animal, which has retained his outstanding colour and markings, not always seen in adult albinos. We have also since added animals form both Morton Wright and Steve Osborn’s line of albinos as well.


Axanthic:
Simple recessive gene, when bred to a normal, produces normal looking offspring that will be heterozygous for that mutation. We are working with the VIP line male axanthic, this is the line we feel best represents this mutation. Our goal with this project is to produce some phenomenal looking snowballs.


Pinstripe:
A dominant mutation, which is characterized by a very reduced pattern with narrow thin lines. We feel that this mutation can be combined with most other combination projects and anticipated results are specimens which display a greater degree of bright colours as seen on; Pastel to Pinstripe ‘’Lemon Blast’’, Hypo to Pinstripe ‘’Hypo Pins’’, Lesser to Pinstripe ‘’King Pins’’, Albino to Pinstripe ‘’Albino Pins’’, Pinstripe to Spider ‘’Spinner’’ and the triple combination of Pastel, Spider and Pinstripe a.k.a ‘’Spinner Blast’’

 




Caramel Albino (T+ Albino):
Simple recessive gene, when bred to a normal, produces normal looking offspring that will be heterozygous for that mutation. Again here we are working with a Malsin x Bell line of high contrast T+ albino. This 2007 male has outstanding lavender markings and the most vibrant burnt orange coloured blushing. Many of the best-looking morph combos are created with the T+ albino.



Genetic Stripe (G-Stripe):
Simple recessive gene, when bred to a normal, produces normal looking offspring that will be heterozygous for that mutation. We wanted a perfect example of this morph, and certainly found what we were looking for in this specimen. This 2006 male represents this mutation at it’s best with his perfectly parallel and symmetrical lines. We hope to work him into many more beautiful combos.



Clown:
Simple recessive gene, when bred to a normal, produces normal looking offspring that will be heterozygous for that mutation. We are lucky to be working with a perfect example of the BHB reduced pattern clown. His perfectly reduced dorsal pattern is accentuated by his solid gold background colour, his interesting hart shaped head pattern has lead us to name him Cupid.

 



Enchi:
A co-dominant morph that is also a colour and pattern mutation with a known super. Enchi’s are a relatively new ball mutation, and quickly gaining popularity. Although hard to catch in pictures they are very different from normals and seem to have a velvety appearance with distinct head and facial markings, the Enchi is one mutation that only gets better with age and will make any combo an interesting new venture.

 



StingerBee:
Are a combination of Co-dominant genes in this case those of the Enchi and that of the Spider. Stinger Bees are also capable of producing three co-dominant mutations when bred to a normal ball python. They will reproduce themselves as well as the mutations of the parent animals (Enchi & Spider) including normals, StingerBees are still a relatively new and exciting combination.


New Stinger Bee

 



Champagne:
A relatively new dominant mutation (Co-dominance TBD) with an overall patternless appearance with varying degree of broken dorsal motif, a variable base color anywhere between light to dark beige up to bright yellow or orange on some specimens. The champagne mutation acts as a pattern demolisher when combined with other mutations. Our male is also Heterozygous for Albino and future combination with this exiting new morph will surely become highly coveted.

 


New Albino Champagne - North American First!

 



Fireball:
Co-dominant gene, bred to a normal reproduces itself with an average of 50% of a given clutch, representing the visual mutation, the other 50% being normal. AKA het black eyed lucies when bred to each other will produce the beautiful Lucy ball, a very sought after ball python morph. We are working with this beautiful mutation as their potential for contributing to new and exciting ball python morphs is still mostly untapped.

 



Super Fire:
Or BEL short for Black Eyed Lucy, are a Dominant gene, basically also one of the solid colored ball mutation with a white crystal appearance some having bright golden yellow blotches, when bred to normal animals they will produce Fires an amazing morph in itself. Super fires or Fires for that matter are key to many other incredible mutations.

 


New Black Eyed Lucy

 



FireFly:
Are a combination of Co-dominant genes in this case those of the Pastel jungle and that of the Fireball. Fireflies are capable of producing three co-dominant mutations when bred to a normal ball python. They will reproduce themselves as well as the mutations of the parent animals (Pastel jungle & Fires) including normals, breed them to other mutations and create truly incredible combinations.


New Fire Fly

 



Lemonblast:
Are a combination of Co-dominant genes in this case those of the Pastel jungle and that of the Pinstripe. Lemonblast's are also capable of producing three co-dominant mutations when bred to a normal ball python. They will reproduce themselves as well as the mutations of the parent animals (Pastel jungle & Pinstripe) including normals, breed them to other mutations and the combinations are endless.

 



Butter:
Co-dominant gene, bred to a normal reproduces itself with an average of 50% of a given clutch, representing the visual mutation, the other 50% being normal looking. Butters are an exciting part of any ball python collection and known for their intense yellow. We selected our butter for his incredible pattern and extreme amount of blushing plus the fact that he is at the same time an Orange Hypo.


New Orange hypo butter

 



ButterBee:
Are a combination of Co-dominant genes in this case those of the Butter ball and that of the Spider. Butter Bees are also capable of producing three co-dominant mutations when bred to a normal ball python. They will reproduce themselves as well as the mutations of the parent animals (Better & Spider) including normals, breed them to other mutations and the combinations are endless.


New Butter Bee

 



Lavender Albino:
Simple recessive gene, when bred to a normal, produces normal looking offspring that will be heterozygous for that mutation. The lavender albino is an amazing mutation to behold and is a key ingredient to producing some of the most wonderful mutation combos out there.


New Lavender Albino

 



Phantom:
Co-dominant gene, bred to a normal reproduces itself with an average of 50% of a given clutch, representing the visual mutation, the other 50% being normal looking. Phantoms are key to producing the Super Phantom...one of the most amazing ball pythons made, and the Phantom combos have to be seen to believe.


New Phantom

 



Woma Ball:
Co-dominant gene, bred to a normal reproduces itself with an average of 50% of a given clutch, representing the visual mutation, the other 50% being normal looking. The Woma ball it still producing some of the most incredible mutations out there.


New Woma Ball

 



Vanilla:
Co-dominant gene, bred to a normal reproduces itself with an average of 50% of a given clutch, representing the visual mutation, the other 50% being normal looking. Vanillas are an important ingredient in any ball python collection. Now imagine the Vanilla cream..and all its combo potential.


New Vanilla

 



Mochi:
Are a combination of Co-dominant genes in this case those of the Enchi and that of the beautiful Mojave. Mochis are also capable of producing three co-dominant mutations when bred to a normal ball python. They will reproduce themselves as well as the mutations of the parent animals (Enchi & Mojave) including normals, can you imagine the combos and Supers. Mochis are still a new and exciting combination.


New first in Canada (2009)!
