The original female this started from was an African farm imported female in 1998. She has been in my possession the entire time.
We have been working with this gene slowly, we produced the original group the 2009/2010 season, 1.2 and held them back. In 2018 we were able to pair son back to mom, and produce another one. This season we have worked it into Pastel, Orange Dream, Yellowbelly and Pied, by pairing to our 2 females we originally produced. We now have the mutation isolated outside of direct blood.
The combos we have produced include: Ambush Pastel, Ambush Yellowbelly, Ambush Orange Dream, Ambush Orange Dream Yellowbelly, Ambush het pied 50% het Albino. - Chris McDougle
Ambush Ball Pythons have a highly reduced pattern. There are variations, such as extreme alien head connections, no or very low eyes in alien heads, black back, and a white/yellow outline around the alien heads. The color is close to a standard ball, just a little brighter. So far, this mutation appears to be a pattern altering and enhancing gene.
The belly looks similar to the tracks on het pieds.
