Microscale is an incomplete dominant gene mutation that affects both the colour and pattern, with the super form being scaleless, making this an awesome powerhouse snake! It also influences all Royals in a completely different way, showing that in itself it is a gene which causes pattern and color mutations. The Microscale gene has so much potential and is still pretty much untouched! There is so much to discover with this gene and the way it influences other genes, not only in its heterozygous form but also in its super form.

The Microscale Ball Python’s head can range from missing a few scales to the whole crown being absent and a bald patch under their chin. Scales are usually smaller in size than a Normal. Coloration and markings are usually consistent with that of a Normal Ball Python.
The body of the Microscale Ball Python does not follow the same patterning of a Normal Ball Python, like the Scaleless Head, but rather displays an Enchi-like banding of alien heads and cleaner tones throughout the body.
The belly of the Microscale Ball Python differs depending upon the line.
The tail of the Microscale Ball Python follows the same pattern and coloration of a Normal Ball Python. Though scale count near the cloaca has been noted, it is yet unconfirmed if this is a genetic trait with all Scaleless Ball Pythons.
