    About

    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’.

    History

    In 2002, Ozzy Boids purchased a female captive hatched Ball Python from his friend Ian Gniazdowski, who worked at Outback Reptiles.

    In 2004, Ozzy decided to breed his newly acquired female to a het Albino male. When the clutch of four eggs finally hatched, Ozzy realized that he had produced a new incomplete dominant trait. Two of the hatchlings looked nearly identical to their mother, indicating that the trait was inherited from her. The discovery was a significant milestone for Ozzy.

    This breakthrough led to further experimentation and development, as Ozzy worked to refine the new morph and explore its potential. Over time, he continued to produce new and exciting animals, including the Super Orange Dream.

    With the potential for even brighter colors and more intricate patterns, he was eager to continue refining and improving even further, constantly using the best examples for pairings. However, it was during this process, around 2010, that he realized that some of the animals he had been selling as Super Orange Dreams were actually just extremely good examples of the single-gene Orange Dream.

    Rather than try to pass them off as something they weren’t, Ozzy instead chose to market these snakes as a line of “high intensity” Orange Dreams, which accurately reflected their exceptional quality and vibrant appearance. This decision helped to establish the HIOD morph as a valuable and desirable variation of the Orange Dream.

    Appearance

    Head

    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.

    Body

    Although the Orange Dream Ball Python retains the “alien heads” pattern of a Normal Ball Python, the spots within this pattern are largely stripped away.

    In addition to its unique pattern, the Orange Dream Ball Python is also known for the enhancement of its coloration. The bright, bold colors of the Orange Dream are often more intense and vivid than those found in the Normal Ball Python, giving them a particularly eye-catching appearance.

    This results in a distinctive appearance characterized by clean and contrasting blotches set against the snake’s jet black base color.

    Belly

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

    Tail

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

    History: Ozzy Boids was initially selling these animals as Super Orange Dreams until they proved out to be single gene ODs.

    Description: Bright orange snakes with deep black pattern, very clean compared to regular orange dream, single gene animals look like super orange dream, combines very well with highlighter genes and especially pastel which doesn’t combine well with regular orange dream. Adult High Intensity Orange Dream Pastel animals look like pastel desert ghost.

    Single gene animals look brighter and more orange than super orange dream animals. Super High Intensity Orange Dream animals look like a different gene all together with deep orange coloration and jet black pattern. Also, regular orange dream animals tend to have a dirty spine that it cleaned up by high intensity orange dream.
