Jolt is an inc-dominant mutation.
The original Jolt was a Black-Pastel-Like animal we imported from Africa and held back to breed. We paired it with a Black Pastel and we were quite surprised when that first Whiplash crawled out of its egg.
Since then we have focused all our breeding efforts on putting the Jolt gene into our Panda Pied project with the intent of producing Whiplash Pieds, so at the moment we have produced a handful of Whiplash and Jolt possible het Pieds so far. 
Jolt Ball Pythons usually have a very unremarkable head, with a slight keyhole headstamp towards the neck.
Jolt Ball Python bodies can be told apart from Normals by the bright yellow scales within the hooped and hooked “alien heads”. It looks like a less extreme version of a Black Pastel.
The tail of the Jolt Ball Python usually carries the same patterning as the rest of the body.
No known proven lines
Whiplash is the result of a new codominant gene we are calling “Jolt,” bred into Black Pastel. This is an “Acts Like Super” type animal where a Whiplash will produce only Jolt and Black Pastel offspring. We named the project after this combo because it was the first animal that we produced with the gene that revealed to us that it was something new.
