There are at least two separate mutations in each species. The Children's Python ones look similar to each other, one of the Stimson's mutations looks pretty drab, the other is quite bright and vivid. The Stimson's Pythons are both higher contrast than the Children's (possibly just because they are T+ versions of snakes with higher contrast). In Children's there is the Latta mutation (the most common) and the Reed mutation (looks similar but much less common). Most people with them have no idea which they have or even that there are two different types. In Stimson's there's the Evans mutation which is the sort of grey/brown one, and the Colin/Snake Ranch line, which is hands down the best looking of them all with lovely bright colours. There are probably more which have been confused with other lines, but those four definitely turned up independently of each other.

There are at least two different mutations in each of Children's and Stimson's pythons. You won't have a mix, it'll be one of those four. If you post a picture I'll be able to tell you which one you have. If you're not sure it's most likely a Latta Children's T+ as they're the cheapest and most common.

That would be surprising for an unknown but without seeing it I can't comment.
