    Just a few slightly unusual pure Darwins. I have some really unusual ones but they are still "classified"

    Really nice pics yellow tail. You seem to have a lot of experience with different forms of Darwin pythons and the albino varient. In your opinion how do the colours of the normal Darwin transfer to the albinos ie what gives them more orange or more yellow bands or the white and yellow base colour or even what brings out the fluorescent lime green colour. Hope that made sense

    That's what I like about Darwins, unlike albino olives or ants albino Darwins exhibit amazing colour variations and fluorescence that are present in the natural animals, generally darker naturals produce more orange albinos but you get some unexpected variations and patterns as well as in the hatchlings in the previous post.

    I agree I think their is a lot of untapped potential in line breeding darwins. But it looks like you have made a very good start yellowtail some very nice snakes their

    Untapped potential in the species with the most morphs :O

    My dream is to have a variety is carpet python morphs like there is ball python morphs

    I was deferring more to the colour palette of the pure Darwin their is a lot of colours that could be enhanced through line breeding for particular colours.

    Thanks @Southernserpent, the good thing with selective line breeding is all the offspring are viable and desirable saleable animals, not like some jags and other morphs where a high percentage end up in the freezer or with debilitating problems. How many thousands of unattractive ball pythons were sacrificed in pursuit of a few freaks?

    What will a MEL/ALB Darwin look like?

    I have contemplated this before. Would it produce a orange/yellow patternless snake?

    Off topic but My 50 Darwin 25 md coastal/jungle is amazing. Rocking a stripe and a little tiny paradox mark. No Fluoro or white just yellow.

    I have a line of pure Darwin albinos that have yellow base and almost no white, hope to breed this one next season with a dark het.
