    About

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

    Axanthic ball pythons have a mutation called Axanthism that only affects the xanthophores to either prevent or greatly reduced 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).

    Appearance

    Head

    The head of an Axanthic ball python is similar to that of a Normal ball python, but with less earthy tones.

    Body

    Axanthic ball pythons’ bodies tend to have reduced markings with the “alien heads” and a pale blushing along the black “puzzle” pattern.

    Tail

    The tail of the Axanthic ball python follows the same colouration as the rest of its body, with blank “alien heads” to either side of a dorsal stripe.
