The Pinstripe Ball Python is a dominant morph that exhibits large changes compared to the Normal Ball Python’s pattern scheme, with both pattern and colouration being altered.
The Pinstripe Ball Python was first produced by Brian and Lori Barczyk. The original was first displayed around 1999 at a expo show in Orlando.
The head of a Pinstripe Ball Python is topped with a dark, almost chocolate-like, crown that tends to fade into the neck. Pinstripes usually have a spot of pattern in the centre of the crown and serrated stripes through their eyes.
The body of a Pinstripe Ball Python is usually dominated by a thick contrasting dorsal stripe from neck to tail, with dark-brown/black “pinstripes” down either side. The sides are patterned with “water droplet” shaped lines over a tanned-brown/golden backdrop of side scales.
The ventral scales of the Pinstripe Ball Python usually carry a golden undertone and can range from completely crisp and clean to almost murky and spotted with dark markings.
The Tail of the Pinstripe Ball Python normally follows the dorsal stripe pattern with the “water droplets” becoming less frequent and prominent.
