The Genetic Stripe Ball Python is a recessive mutation that alters both colour and pattern. Genetic Stripes have a thick dorsal stripe down the entire length of their bodies. This dorsal stripe can range from one complete or multiple broken-up strips.


No history yet.



The head of a Genetic Stripe Ball Python is similar to that of a Normal Ball Python but with less black tones and a more gray earthy colouration.


Genetic Stripe Ball Pythons bodies have no side markings, with the “alien heads” completely absent. Down the center of its back it exhibits a thick, light-coloured dorsal stripe, with a black/dark-brown stripe to either side.


The belly of the Genetic Stripe Ball Python is usually clear of markings.


The tail of Genetic Stripe Ball Pythons follow the same colouration as the rest of its body, with absent “alien heads” and markings and black/dark brown stripes to either side of the main, light-coloured dorsal stripe.
