Mario is an incomplete dominant mutation founded by Sabala Serpents and Mike Wonka in 2012.
The Mario was discovered in 2012 from a “Normal” x Pastel clutch. Out of five eggs, two Marios, two Pastels, and a possible Mario Pastel hatched out. That 50/50 ratio led us to believe that one of the parents was carrying another gene. 
The head of the Mario Ball Python is easily recognisable by the “teeth” shape patterning along the heat pits and a headstamp that resembles a face.
The body of the Mario Ball Python is covered in an extremely busy and bold pattern, with alien heads banding over the dorsal being a frequent occurrence, along with connected alien heads. The overall colouration is more orangey than a Normal Ball Python and with bolder blacks.
The Mario Ball Python usually expresses a dark line down the center of its belly scales.
The tail of the Mario Ball Python follows the same patterning as the rest of the body.
