Black Belly is a dominant ball python mutation.
This is considered a problematic morph. Poor growing, poor breeding, and facial/cranial malformations.
Black Belly was imported and first produced by Outback Reptiles.
The head of a Black Belly Ball Python is usually topped with a heavily faded crown, often with a lighter spot in its center. Lips and nostril scales can range from a shocking yellow to a tanned white. Facial/cranial malformation has been found to be not uncommon.
The body of a Black Belly Ball Python follows the “alien head” pattern of a Normal Ball Python but much dirtier tones are displayed.
The belly of the Black Belly Ball Python tends to have a zig-zag band of black scaling the majority of the way down, giving them what is commonly referred to as a “zipper”.
The tail of the Black Belly Ball Python usually follows the same patterning as the rest of the body.
