MorphMarket helped fund this new movie that you WON'T want to miss! Make some popcorn and watch this tonight.

The Ball Python is without a doubt the world’s most popular pet snake, and for the first time on Dāv Kaufman's Reptile Adventures, comes a feature length documentary on how the Ball Python is living in the wilds of Africa. For almost a month, Dāv toured West Africa from Ghana to Togo and Benin to tell not only the story of how the Ball Python is living out in the wild, but also the story of its economic impact and how it has positively influenced the culture in West Africa. This is the story of the world's most popular pet snake. This is the story of the Ball Python in the wild in Africa.

Our captive bred pets descended from these wild animals. This movie answers questions that can help us better understand them such as:

  • Where areas do they inhabit and what do they eat?
  • What is their relationship to the indigenous people?
  • And most importantly, how can we support their conservation?

We promise that you will enjoy this movie.

There was a partial outage last night and this post gives some details.

Tuesday night, Cloudflare had an incident with its analytics which led the MorphMarket website to think it was under attack. This cased it to increase its security settings which blocked some users for a few hours until our engineers restored the status.

This experience gave us useful data on how to improve our monitoring and avoid a false alarm like this. We are also adding a mechanism to automatically restore the status once a threat has passed.

Also, the wording of Cloudflare's message made it sound like an individual might have been specifically blocked from the site, which was not the case. We'll see if we can revise that wording so it's less confusing.

While most users were not affected, we apologize to those who were temporarily blocked. Thanks. :)

MorphMarket’s Index Page is where you can explore animals by trait, such as by gene or locality.

We've rolled out a new version as part of our platform redesign.

It does everything the old version did PLUS:

  • Search, filter & sort traits
  • Photo thumbnails
  • Clear labeling of the type of trait such as it being a Locality
  • The ability to see ALL traits in the system even if no ads are listed
  • Trait combos list all the traits in the combo
  • And of course a fresh, professional look

The demo below shows these features.

Try it out by visiting any category from the home page. For example Ball Pythons.

To make requests for additions or changes to the listed traits, visit this page.

UPDATE 7/18: New default view mode which is compact like the old one, and all items on a single page. Some more refinements still to come.
