About

The Orange Crush Ball Python was first discovered by Mike Wilbanks in 2003 and proven recessive in 2008.

History

The Orange Crush Ball Python was first produced by Mike Wilbanks in 2008 from a male he imported in 2003.

In 2004 Mike bred the imported male and all of the babies hatched out appearing normal.

In 2005 he bred him to NERDs line of Orange Ghost and again all of the babies hatched out appearing normal, but this time they were at least het for Orange Ghost.

Around 2008 Mike bred back the 2005 babies and produced the first Orange Crush Ball Pythons that looked like the original male import, to prove the gene to be recessive. [2]
