The Genetic Stripe Ball Python is a recessive mutation that alters both color and pattern. Genetic Stripes have a thick dorsal stripe down the entire length of their body. This dorsal stripe can range from one complete stripe or multiple broken-up stripes.
The original and only line of G-Stripe ball python was imported by Bob Clark Reptiles, who also produced the first visual G-Stripe babies. Vida Preciosa International produced a clutch later the same year from hets they had purchased from Bob.
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 coloration.
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-colored 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 coloration as the rest of its body, with absent “alien heads” and markings and black/dark brown stripes to either side of the main, light-colored dorsal stripe.
No known proven lines.
