Super Pastels were first produced in 1999, they were the first "designer" ball python. Supers are created by breeding two pastels together, statistically this breeding should produce 50% pastels, 25% normals, and 25% supers. As hatchlings supers appear as an exteme version of a pastel. They are a bright neon yellow, with an opalescent pearl-like fading on their heads and well as their saddles. In addition to their great looks, supers are valuable from a genetic standpoint as well. When bred to a normal, 100% of the offspring will be pastels,no more 50/50 clutches. I hatched out my first Supers in 2005 and I`m looking forward to producing lots more of these beauties in the future.
