To maintain authenticity and ensure the quality of animals on MorphMarket, the use of representative photos will no longer be permitted for the following categories effective August 1, 2023:
Green Tree Pythons
Short Tailed Pythons
African Fat-Tailed Geckos
Chameleons (subadult or older)
A representative photo is any picture that does not show the actual animal or animals being sold. This includes stock photos, photos of a similar animal from the seller's collection, or a sibling of the animal. A seller CAN use a group photo as long as the exact animal or animals are pictured.
Multiple Quantity Ads May Use Representative Photos if:
- They do not fall into the categories mentioned above and comply with the current guidelines detailed in our rules.
- They fall into the mentioned categories but are sent as a complete group to a single buyer.
Multiple Quantity Ads May NOT Use Representative Photos if:
- They fall into the mentioned categories and are being sent as individual animals of the group.
You may already be familiar with our “like” and “save” options, but they are officially better than ever!
Rare Genetics Inc. had a breakthrough in their study of the Desert Ghost gene of Ball Pythons. As a result you can now order this genetic test; however, there is a catch. The DG test is an elimination test. This means it's highly accurate to detecting if the animal does NOT have the gene, but only 85% accurate in detecting the presence of the gene.
Also the Ultramel test has been added back, for a total of 16 genetic ball python tests.

We've made an update to how the system automatically renews ads. Now, it will continually renew older ads instead of doing so in very large batches causing certain ads to get buried very quickly.
When ads are renewed, they jump to the front of applicable user searches. Listings are eligible for renewal every several weeks depending on a seller's plan level. This helps give more attention to older listings that are still available.
Listings have always been automatically renewed for sellers with a Standard Membership or higher, unless they have disabled this feature. In the past, auto-renewals for all eligible listings took place each night at a single time. This led to thousands of ads being renewed at once leading to an inferior browsing experience, with pages and pages of ads jumping to the front at the same time.
With this update, automatic renewals now continually occur throughout the day. Generally, listings will be auto-renewed at the same time of day when they were first listed (for new listings from this point onward). Also, sellers with auto-renewal are unlikely to see their ads ever show up as eligible for renewal since they should be auto-renewed very quickly.
Slight changes were made to bulk import as well. When new listings are bulk imported or bulk listed for the first time, they are now scheduled at times throughout the day. The system will try to schedule them a few minutes apart, but over a period that will not exceed 24 hours.
