PostSubject: confused as H E double hockey sticks!!!!!!   Sun Aug 05, 2012 9:24 pm

Now i know i am newer to BPs than most on here, and im totally lost to most morphs.. but some of the morphs look really normal.. so how do you tell the difference and how would i know if its even a morph that i am looking at.. For me pattern change and wilder coloring is a given.. Its the ones that look really close to normal with slight variations that trick me..

It comes with experience and seeing the morphs in person. Pictures on a computer only bring out some of the traits. For example, enchi looks fairly normal in a picture, but in real life it pops. You need to see the morphs in person. Go to expos and shows. Develop relationships with breeders.

Pictures on a computer just never do a morph justice. Some are subtle others are not. As Don said get to more shows and talk to the breeders about what they have on the tables. Never be afraid to ask them questions about the morph. Most are more then happy to explain the morph subtleties in the animals they are selling.

iagree

Get out there and look at every BP you can! Also, familiarize yourself with websites like http://www.worldofballpythons.com/

WoBP has most of the currently recognized genetic morphs. Lurk on sites of big-name breeders like RDR, BHB and NERD. Also, I highly recommend this book http://www.amazon.com/Designer-Morphs-Volume-One-Constrictor-Variations/dp/3899734866/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1344217807&sr=8-8&keywords=ball+python

MD Reptile Farms will usually sell it at their shows (like the Northern VA or the Richmond show). And don't worry about Yellowbellys. They confuse just about everyone, it seems like. lol!


---------
EDIT: Just read a post on FB that WoBP's website has crashed for unknown reasons. They're trying to get it back up and running with as little loss of data as possible. :c
