    Hi all, just woundering what if you think this boy could be axanthic? He is a 75% jungle about 16 months old, and hasnt changed colours much. Sometimes you can see a bit of fluro green under certain lights, but he has fluri jags in his family. You reckon he could have some axanthicism in him?[​IMG][​IMG]

    Yeah, i know hes definatley not pure axanthic. One of my family realtives bred him, and the parents were both jungle jags, mum being half coastal/md. They were both purchased from neville reibelt, so something else may be in there.

    And if the mix your saying is correct then highly unluckily it has any axanthic genetics
    It’s just a mutt

    Sounds like your family relative ripped you off.

    You listed atleast 3 different species of pythons In mum and dad, were either of them het axanthic? I would highly doubt it from the species u listed

    Best ask Neville, he would know, he does all his paper work and can tell you what he sold

    I have a couple of Rogers axanthic jungles and they are nice but I find they do not have as good black and white as my line bred (unproven axanthic) Julattens.

    First 2 are Roger Lester axanthic jungles

    I love the axanthic gene for its inheritable nature but yellowtail is right about some line bred snakes being a different white. Check out my 88% MD jag

    I wish I could get my pics to load straight up and not an attachment

    Some of diamond bredli jags I see overseas are soo white.
    I owned a couple of julattens, one was from URS really clean crisp white other one was more grey and I actually was suspicious about it being an AX to almost a decade ago. Lol

    Is that a recessive trait? Wonder if they are 100% pure.
