About

Pied is a recessive mutation founded by Bob Clark Reptiles in 2011.

History

In 2007 an interesting wild reticulated python with a white belly and sides became available. The snake was captured in Indonesia and eventually made its way to me. I think, at the time, I was a little generous, or at least hopeful, when I named the snake “pied”.The snake, a male, bred and produced offspring that year and I raised these animals to maturity hoping they carried the pied trait. In May of 2011 I hatched the first eggs from one of these snakes and was very pleased to see the father’s pattern expressed in the babies. As in ball pythons, the pied trait is quite variable. A few of the offspring resembled the father but many had extensive white areas dorsally including the head. I’m proud to offer these animals for the first time. [2]
