Josie is a dominant mutation founded by Joe Ellis Reptiles.
"I have been working with this weird male for the last 4 years. I always noticed the black mustache, a busy pattern, and a light color (He is in shed in this picture) and figured I would see what he could do. I am not sure on the name so I will just call them “Josie Balls” for now…
In late 2008 I bred the original “Josie Ball” to two normal female. In 2009 produced 2.0 “Josie Balls” and 0.1 Normal from one female and 2.0"Josie Ball" and 1.2 Normals from the second female. They were not all that crazy looking and they were all males so I decided to give most of them away as pets. I did give one to a buddy of mine just in case it ended up being something. At this time I was pretty much thinking I would only breed this male to his daughter (who hates to grow) so that I would not waste anymore females on a dinker project. I did not take any pics of the “Josie Balls” that year thinking it was a dead end project." 
The head of the Josie Ball Python usually displays a black mustache above the lips.
The body of the Josie Ball Python usually lacks eyes within the alien heads and has a lighter colouration than that of a Normal Ball Python.
The tail of the Josie Ball Python follows the same colouration as the rest of the body.
