Scientific Name: Python regius
Common Name: Ball Python
/ Royal python
Morph: Ghost or Hypomelanistic
Color Mutation - Simple Recessive (NERD)
Ghost Ball Pythons are hypomelanistic; the word “hypo” means
lacking and the word “melanin” refers to the dark pigments in animals (browns and blacks ). Since the hypomelanistic
Ball Pythons appearance creates a lighter, almost “transparent” pattern these snakes are commonly referred to
as ghosts. When hypomelanistic Ball Pythons shed, the shed skin is patternless. They seem to come in may different colors,
Green, Yellow, Butterscotch, Desert, and Gray Ghost.
The Ghost ball Python mutation was first produced & proven simple recessive in 1994.
We were very lucky to obtain this particular blood line of Orange Ghost which is directly from Africa.
