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]

The body of the Pied reticulated python is dominated by large pigmentless areas along the sides and dorsal. Burnt orange patterning tends to stick along the spine, surrounded by greyish rings.


The tail of the Pied reticulated python follows the same patterning as the rest of the body.
