The Orange Dream Ball Python is an incomplete dominant mutation that alters the colouration and pattern. The name Orange Dream comes from Ozzy Boids, the first to prove the bright orange snake as genetic, joking saying that the snake would make him millions, to which his friend replied “keep dreaming”, becoming the ‘Orange Dream’.


In 2002 Ozzy Boids purchased a female captive hatched Ball Python from a friend named Ian Gniazdowski.

In '04 Ozzy paired the female to a het Albino male and produced four eggs.
When the clutch hatched Ozzy instantly knew he had produced a new incomplete dominant trait, with two of the hatchlings looking exactly like their mother. [2]



The head of an Orange Dream Ball Python is topped with a golden/orange crown and blushing towards the neck. It exhibits the stripes of a Normal Ball Python showing through and under the eyes.


The Orange Dream Ball Python still carries the ‘alien heads’ pattern of a Normal Ball Python but spots within are largely stripped away, which gives it large contrasting blotches between the jet black “puzzle” pattern.


Orange Dream Ball Pythons very rarely show any marking on their bellies, leaving a bright pearl set of scales.


The tail of an Orange Dream Ball Python is just like a Normal pattern-wise but following the Orange Dream colouration.
