Piebald Ball Python
Proven genetic by Peter Kahl in 1997, the piebald ball python
is among the most impressive looking balls ever produced.
They are characterized by varying amounts of solid porcelein
white. Whether a "high-white" or a "low-white", every piebald
is both beautiful and unique. The amount of white on a piebald
is not directly inheritable. Thus a pair of 10% pied white parents
can throw a clutch of 90% pied white offspring and vice versa.
I personally think the 40%-60% animals look the most stunning. In 2005
pieds were taken to a new level when they were crossed
with pastels and lavender albinos. This new wave of
"designer pieds" is going to be absolutely INSANE. I
cant wait to see what pieds will do when they are
crossed into other morphs. I think the designer pieds
will further increase the demand for the already
coveted piebald. I`m looking forward to breeding pieds
with pastels,cinnamons, and a few others. In 2006 we
are expecting pieds,100% het pieds,and pastels het pied.
