    Could you put up a photo of the male? Are they related? Do you have anymore info on the line does she have caramel in her line? The reason she might look lighter is if she's is ghost = caramel x axanthic, she might be a super form of caramel instead of het.

    A ghost is a hypo axanthic
    You can have Caramel ghost which is a hypo caramel axanthic

    IMO the true ghosts in Australia are going to come from a caramel pairing. The problem is we have different genetics in australia to overseas eg ghost corns recessive hypo x recessive axanthic, ghost boa co dom hypo x recessive axanthic. Yes you could use a line breed hypo coastal but IMO they will look different to the 'ghosts' from oversea. If you look at chocolate rats in Australia they look to be the same as overseas chocolate rats but when crossed to other colors has completely different out comes. Just because these snake display axanthic look and are recessive doesn't mean our line of axanthic is going to act the same way as oversea lines. This is why these projects are so exciting...

    Here's a pic I took of some hatchlings from my proven axanthics, I put a few in a bucket to show the difference.
    There's 2 caramel ghosts (hypo , caramel and axanthic), one normal ghost (hypo and axanthic) and one normal axanthic in there.

    This is definately causing a lot of contraversy someone else on this sight was just trying to sell off an "axanthic" carpet but when questioned about history etc etc. there was no reply... In my very honest opinion they do nothing for me its a very grey carpet python just the future breedings of snow albinos that get me going... But in saying that i do appreciate the hard work to finally prove these out... CONGRATS Larks!!!
