Python Passion

Captive Bred Ball Pythons


The sable ball python was first produced in 2002 by Eric Burkett.  The sable has very subtle differences from a normal.  Overall, the coloring of a sable resembles that of a normal, but their gold saddles tend to have black speckling, making the snake appear darker.  This incomplete dominant (also referred to as co-dominant) trait's super form is a beautiful, very dark-colored ball python, reminiscent of an angolan python's pattern.

We have a super sable male in our collection.  One of the sable babies he produced for us is pictured below.  So far, there hasn't been much done with the morph, but we have high hopes to mix sable into some other genes in the future.  Among them are pinstripe (which produces the camo ball python designer morph), along with hypo and possibly cinnamon, lesser or butter, and piebald.
