    @Antsnest for anything Anteresia it might be best to contact Peter Birch from Colorful Reptiles, he should be able to help you. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) -ronhalling

    Ghost is just a recessive morph that popped up... it looks like a patternless, only instead of the normal brown colouration it's main colouration is silverish grey. It has been known to change shades with temperature.

    Ghost - Also known as Hypo or Hypomelanistic. The “Ghost” is a recessive mutation that reduces the black pigmentation. Although there are many different lines of ghosts, they generally follow the same general description. Ghosts are varying shades of yellow, brown, grey and green. Their sheds are always clear much like albinos, with faded dark colors with a faded head. A ghost will always appear to be in shed or always seem to have a hazy appearance :(

    Very interesting post "You are the lej"

    Straight off the World of Bald pythons site.
