The Ball Python without question is the most popular pet snake species of all time. From its humble beginnings as just a “pet store” snake to the present Designer Snake boom, the Ball Python is the clear king! With stunning new patterns and colour combinations being created almost daily, the striking contrast from the modest wild phenotype Python regius to captive-bred genetic wonders is beyond imagination. Since the first printing of The Ultimate Ball Python, the snake breeding world has added new genetics, increasing our already abundant gene palette. As we continue to combine and refine these genetic combinations the bounds of a breeder’s creativity often surpass the imagination.
