Appearance

Head

The head of a Calico Ball Python is very similar to that of a Normal Ball Python, though with slightly darker tones fading to a light crown.

Body

The body of the Calico Ball Python is usually covered in dark “alien heads”, outlined with deep golds and bright yellows. Random splashes of white scales, usually originating from the ventral side, can range from a slight marker to completely covering the animal. Though the white pixelation usually occurs within the “alien heads”, it can be present anywhere on the body.

Tail

The tail of the Calico Ball Python is usually dominated by a dark dorsal stripe that can display white patches of scales like the body.
