About

This gene reduces patterning and reduces the darker pigments. Many snakes with this gene also display more intense yellow pigment. [1]

Issues

No snake with the super form of the Jaguar gene has survived longer than a day.

This is normally caused by defects in the lungs. Snakes with only one copy also have neurological issues. This can be as minor as a slight wobble that is nearly unnoticeable to animals that corkscrew and cannot right themselves easily.

It seems the defect is related directly to the gene, so it cannot be bred out. This makes this nearly identical to the spider gene in ball pythons, including the lethal super form. [3]

History

The Jaguar morph was originally found in a coastal carpet python (M. s. mcdowelli) in 1994. The morph was named in 1997. [2]
