Uploaded by ReptilTV on 05.07.2011

Hi and welcome to episode 31 of Reptil.TV.
I always ask you to check my balls. That's why it is time to do a ball python special in this episode.
Today we want to show you some nice animals from this season.
Let's start with something small. Here I have a neat Yellow Belly.
I'll count the Yellow Belly to the simple morphs. There are gorgeous animals with strong yellow and black colors. A handsome Yellow Belly, that is really pretty.
Here we have a Blue Eyed Lucy. By now there are many white animals. Many breedings lead to a white animal.
Here we have a Blue Eyed Lucy. By now there are many white animals. Many breedings lead to a white animal.
On the other hand, the white pythons are really beautiful animals.
In this case, we breaded a Russo Lemon with a Mojave. The result is this Blue Eyed Lucy. A white snake with blue eyes.
Here we have an Ultramel. The Ultramels are one of the most popular recessive morphs.
In contrast to Caramels, the Ultramels have more intensive colors. And we don't have the problem with bends in the spine.
At the moment on of the most sought-after animals.
Here we have a Calico Pastel. As the name indicates, a Calico breaded with a Pastel.
They have been around for a few years. In terms of color still outstanding and hot animals.
Here we have a Yellow Belly Champagne. A Champagne breaded with a Yellow Belly. They often have these pretty line drawings with the black borders.
Genetically interesting, because of the Yellow Belly. If you bread it with a Specter, you can try a Super Stripe Champagne.
Or maybe an Ivory Champagne.
Here I have a Pastel Champagne for you. As you can see it is molting at the moment. However, the Pastel Champagne normally looks like that.
The light color and the spots that have a yellow tone. A really nice combination.
Pastel breaded with Champagne. And if you want to continue breading, it is interesting.
This beauty is one of the reasons I fly to Africa every year.
It's an untested morph, which hatched on the farm in Africa. We call it Question Ball, you can also call it Odd Ball.
There have been no genetic tests, in order to find out what bread it is. The colors are really beautiful. We'll see if we can bread a new morph with it.
If it passes on its genetical code and what the result will be.
For me a highlight with the untested animals in this season.
The line on the head, the yellow color and the pattern. A really gorgeous snake.
Here we have an other Odd Ball from Africa. At first, not as spectacular as the yellow one.
I really like it. It's a bit like the Cinnamons or Black Pastels. The stripes on the back are interesting. The line on the nose is interrupted.
I'm quite sure that is genetically based. In the end we'll have to test that.
On the right, I have a Motley Ball, which I brought with me from Africa. It was the most expensive under the Odd Balls.
It has these Motley spots that we know from the Corn Snake. The round spots on top.
I've got a Genetic Stripe next to it, so we can compare.
He really looks a lot like the Genetic Stripes, but he has got the line pattern, that is interrupted, and he has got real spots in it.
The spots have real borders. Dark spots in the middle instead of a stripe in the middle.
With this Motley Ball we'll hopefully head in a new direction and bread Motley Balls.
With this Motley Ball we'll hopefully head in a new direction and bread Motley Balls.
We'll also show you some animals from last year.
Some animals aren't spectacular as babies. It can take half a year, up to year until you see their real color.
This Vanilla Fire is a good example for this. It's typical for them, that during growth they become nicer and lighter.
Here we have a combination, Fire and Vanilla. A really beautiful, light and crème colored animal.
Genetic Jungles are an other good example for animals, where the colors develop over time.
As babies, they are not impressive. With one year, the yellow comes out lovely. With one to two years, they have nicest hue in their life.
Here I have a one-year-old Lavender Albino for you.
As a baby, it's hard to differentiate them from normal Albinos. As they grow, it gets easier. They start getting a light blue hue or a purple hue, as you can see behind the head.
The orange color is more intensive than with a common Albino.
This is a Pin Pied. A combination of Pie Ball and Pinstripe. In between you can see a bit of the Pinstripe pattern.
In contrast to the Spider Pieds we saw earlier, the Pin Pieds have more patterns, even at the tail. And They have the typical pinstripe pattern.
Last but not least, I've got this handsome 2010 Killer Bee.
Killerbee is a really martial name. Of course Kevin from the US came up with the name.
A Killerbee is the bread of a Super Pastel with a Spider.
Not like the Bumblebee a Pastel with a Spider. A Killerbee is a Super Pastel with a Spider.
Right now, we are in the breading season. As you can see the incubators are full. Let's have a look inside. Maybe there is highlight inside.
Let's look inside. Here we have an egg batch that is Head Super Stripe. A Specter breaded with a Latif.
It's an egg batch, that I am looking forward to see hatch.
All but one are still closed.
Let's have a look. What we can already see is pretty.
It looks like a Specter with Moca. It should become a Mocha Specter. Looks promising. In a few days we'll see what will hatch.
Let's look inside this one. Here we have an egg batch that I call White Belly which is breaded with Mojave.
This egg is also slit slightly. We can have a little peek inside.
At least there is a Mojave inside. On first sight it looks like the White Belly didn't pass on its genes.
It looks like a Mojave. But again, we'll have to wait a few days until the animal has hatched completely.
The other eggs are still closed. Wait, this one is also slit slightly. Let's have a quick peek inside.
We don't 'window' the eggs as some people do. I really only peal a small part open and look inside, if the egg is slit slightly.
What I can see here is nothing spectacular. But we'll see after the snake has hatched.
Breading season is the greatest time in the year. On a daily basis there are new egg batches.
Each day it's fun to have a look what is new. The best part is when the eggs a slit slightly and you can peek inside if it is something new, something extraordinary.
It's the season where you go to work even more motivated than normally.
That was a bit of my selection of this year’s morphs. At least from those animals that were at my disposal.
We have some hot eggs boiling. There are more snakes coming.
I'm interested if we chose the right ones. What's your favorite morph? Did we present it, or would you say the morph of the year is something else?

Until next time!

I have no idea what to say.
Exactly! We said the text five times and it was all right.
For the end Adam is making rustling noises in the background......
That was fantastic! Right??
