    I dont think it wont happen, Pygmy stimsoni are a natural local of Antaresia and perthensis are also a natural local. I would imagine as i dont know because ive never seen or come across( not saying they dont) pygmy macs but i would think they are a cross breed between a pygmy and a spotted and so on. I dont see how they would make a morelia smaller? is it possible?

    Snakes vary in size depending on the locality... if you want a pygmy carpet get a lowlands form jungle, if you want a pygmy bhp...get a Pilbara local one.

    well they have pygmy spotteds, stimsons and children how isn't it possible for them to find/creat a carpet or something. Its happened with albions, it started with just darwins, now there olives, spotted, bhp, brums, etc etc
    just a thought..

    I don't think there are pygmy spotteds and childrens. I thought it was just either the plain pygmys and stimson pygmys as a results of a hybrid breeding...?

    Either way...I doubt it would be possible to get pygmy carpets etc. Albino's are a result of skin genetics...size is a whole different matter so I don't think you can compare the two.
