    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

    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.
