About

No single gene pictures available yet. Above are combos.

There are multiple lines of non-allelic Axanthics, the most worked with being the TSK, VPI, Joliff and MJ lines. GCR in less worked with currently.

Axanthic Ball Pythons have a mutation called Axanthism that only affects the xanthophores to either prevent or greatly reduce production of yellow and red pigmentation. The resulting snake is usually a mixture of black, grays and whites as the axanthic mutation does not affect the melanophores (brown and black pigment), or iridophores (iridescent pigmentation).
