Pastel Super Stripe
Posted or updated on 11/28/2010
This is a pastel super stripe ball python. This is a cross between a yellow belly, pastel, and specter. They have a really bright color almost like a banana. When I say banana I mean the fruit and not the snake. I think they will only get better with age.
I also produced some other crazy looking pastel super stripes. This breeding was from a pastel ivory I aquired a long time ago with a specter. I believe there is another gene involved with this snake. I produced two in this clutch that look very similar. I am not sure if it has something to do with the pastel or the yellow belly. They just look so different from the other pastel super stripes that I produced. It is interesting in that I have people that really like one type or the other. I really like both but I can see how different people have opposite opinions of each. I think it is an exciting aspect of the super stripe project in that there have been so few crosses done. I think we are in the infant stage of what can be produced with the super stripe project.
