    His colours are lovely! And I love how his pattern changes too... kinda reminiscent of the change of pattern in a Rough Scaled Python.

    Thanks stompsy his pattern and colour are pretty cool, I love how the tails on boas are so different to the rest of the pattern, some are just so spectacular

    I don’t know how the Hypo gene works in pythons but in boas it’s a great cleanUp gene that reduces black pigments and increases the red,plus his Hypo harlequin gene is a line bred polygenic co dominant colour mutation of which in the super form can be nearly patternless and that’s really red[​IMG] i actually prefer the tail colour
