LAVENDER_ALBINO_BALL_PYTHON

Lavender Albino Scientific Name: Python regius
Common Name:
Ball Python
Morph:
Lavender Albino
Genetics: Color Mutation - Simple Recessive ( RDR )

I know what you're thinking.........nice "Black Light" effects. No special lighting was used at all to capture the true color of these ball pythons. These albinos are hard to photograph!......All these pics were taken under normal light with NO FLASH......thats why they may seem darker than my normal pics. I had been hiding a female "Lavender albino" here for sometime ........she was offered to me from Africa as "normal" albino ball python......at the time I had committed to buying two "wild hatched" albino ball pythons .........she is one of the two that I received.............sight unseen!!!!!.......Well.......I totally flipped out when I opened the bag and seen her.........she was like no other albino I had ever seen!!!!...... she was glowing..........and not like a "high contrast" albino.............I knew she was different for sure. I was so happy to have her!!!

This is a brand new "Form" of the albino ball python that we have not seen yet. It may not be compatible with the standard albino ball pythons at all???.......... These albinos glow!!!!......they are major "Eye Candy".....and stand out against any other albino you will see.......including the "high contrast" ones that I do not believe exist anyway. The "Lavenders" ARE HIGH CONTRAST!!!! The yellow in my female is a "NEON" yellow.......edged in pumpkin orange.......and her chin and under side is "Pearl" white........the "Flash" shows off the yellow big time......but it seems to also wash out the lavender color a little.

NERD and I do some projects together and we stumbled on to a baby import albino male in Africa which was described as "Different".......so we sprung for it.........turns out that this little male was a "Lavender" also !!!!........yes a male!!!.......to breed to my female........so NERD and I own this male together!!!...........Ask anyone who has seen these guys in person and they will all tell you the same thing..........."That is the most awesome albino ball python I have ever seen!!".

The reason they are being called "Lavender Albinos" is because obviously they have a very nice lavender/baby blue color where the pure white would be on the average albino ball python. They still appear to look like a yellow and white albino........with a nice lavender hue that really makes them stand out. The yellow also is not your standard yellow .....it is more crisp and defined........there is zero "Bleeding" of the yellow into the white at all......the yellow is edged in pumpkin orange color that really helps break up the pattern and add contrast to them. Now for the eyes.......they are not the pale pink we are used to......they are a deep ruby color...not as transparent as the normal albinos. My female is over 4 feet long and she just gets better looking with every shed..........I do not expect to see any fading or " washing out" that we sometimes see with the albinos. I believe these guys will keep their beautiful high contrasting colors as adults .......and that will be awesome!!!!

I for one, have many normal albinos that were screamers as babies....but have faded/blended/washed out with age..........they are still beautiful...........but not nearly as appealing as they were when they were younger. The Lavenders are the "New and Improved" albino ball strain!

* UPDATE * I bred my pair of Lavender Albinos together for the 2001 breeding season and produced 4 beautiful Lavender Albino babies exactly like mom and dad!!!...........there are pics below of the babies. The babies start out as a super gorgeous albinos with a slight amount of lavender color...........and as they mature..........they become unreal!!!
