Bat Eater

  • Type: (P. bivittatus x M. reticulatus)
  • Aliases: (Burmese Python x Reticulated Python)
  • First Produced By: Frank Kramer (382380)
  • First Produced In: 2007

Appearance

The so called “Borneo Bat Eaters” are a 50/50 cross of a Reticulated Python and a Burmese Python. Typically a male Retic is bred to a female Burm. They have a brown/gold/olive base color with black blotches for the dorsal pattern as well as down the sides. Some say, their patterns resemble “camouflage.” The head looks more like a Burm but you can see the Retic influence, it is especially evident in the orange eyes.

Jungle Retic

  • Type: ((P. bivittatus x M. reticulatus) X M. reticulatus)
  • Aliases: ((Burmese Python x Reticulated Python) X Reticulated Python)
  • First Produced By: NERD (1210)
  • First Produced In: Unknown
Description

Jungle Retics are the product of breeding a “Borneo Bat Eater” back to a Retic. Which means they are 75/25 cross, in favor of the Retic. NERD was the first to produce the “Jungle” Retics and within that clutch there was not one that looked like another. Some of them were striped, others banded and some that were just weird. According to Andy Deitz, NERD’s Retic specialist, they hit you like nothing else, it feels like you’re getting bit by an adult mainland.

Proven Lines

Balltic

  • Type: ((P. bivittatus x M. reticulatus) x Goldenchild M. reticulatus)
  • Aliases: Ball-Tic, ((Burmese Python x Reticulated Python) X Goldenchild Reticulated Python)
  • First Produced By: NERD
  • First Produced In: 2012
History

It was originally believed that the Balltic shown by NERD in 2012 was a Reticulated Python x Ball Python, however Kevin later confirmed the breeding pair was a Bateater (Burmese Python x Reticulated Python) x Goldenchild Reticulated Python.

Jungle Burm

  • Type: ((P. bivittatus x M. reticulatus) X P. bivittatus)
  • Aliases: ((Burmese Python x Reticulated Python) X Burmese Python)
  • First Produced By: Unknown
  • First Produced In: Unknown
Description

Jungle Burms are the result of breeding a “Borneo Bat Eater” back to a Burm. Making them a 75/25, in favor of the Burmese. The few I have seen simply looked like glorified Burms with a weird Retic influenced head. The “Jungle” Retics are much more exciting. [1]
