The head of a Cinnamon Ball Python is a dark shade of brown that fades towards the neck. Lips usually display bright pink/white scales.
The body of the Cinnamon Ball Python is usually dominated by large chains of “alien heads/keyholes” either connected or very closely beside one another. Where yellows and orange of a Normal Ball Python are, the Cinnamon expresses various shades of brown and cream.
