The Mojave Ball Python is both a colour and pattern altering morph that is easily recognisable by intense flaming and the “keyhole” structure of the “alien heads” usually found in a Normal Ball Python. The name Mojave comes from the location it was first discovered and bred, on the West coast is the Mojave.

The Mojave ball python was first reproduced in captivity in 2000 by The Snake Keeper (TSK). They had aquired the orginal Mojave from a local wholesaler in '99. [2]

Only one Mojave Ball Python has been found in the wild as of yet, meaning every Mojave in the hobby is a descendant of this one animal.

The head of a Mojave Ball Python is usually dark brown/ black, occasionally with very slight fading on its crown and the usual, but brighter yellow, stripes through the eyes.


The body of Mojave Ball Python is covered in a “keyhole” pattern. Where the “alien heads” of a Normal Ball Python usually show two “eyes”, the Mojave’s consist of one. The colouration normally exhibits various shades of browns and intense yellows over a greyish body, with deep blacks the whole way through.


The Belly of a Mojave Ball Python is usually completely white and lacking any pattern, though dark “tracks” can sometimes be exhibited.


The tail of the Mojave Ball Python usually comes to an end following the thick dorsal stripe and bright flames up the sides.
