Please Identify Carpet Python

Hey there!

Got two Carpets in a local shop. Seller says that one is Zebra-Jaguar and one is Jungle (but I don't trust his knowledge). I think it's vice verse.
Please help me identify which is which.

1. Zebra-Jag (as per the Seller)

2. Jungle (as per the Seller)

I read much about neurological problems with Jaguars but I really doubt that the Seller is right with who is who. And I believe Google proves I'm right.

Please help ASAP. Thank you very much.

Re: Please Identify Carpet Python

We can't visually confirm the genetics of carpets because there's so many crosses out there. The first picture resembles a jungle/zebra more. The 2nd picture is definitely a jag, even though I have no idea what the pairing could have been. You can usually tell jags by the reduced patterns.

Re: Please Identify Carpet Python

As far as my limited JCP knowledge goes, and based on my small collection of JCPs, they both look like Jungle CPs to me. #2 looks rather nice to me, but #1 is normal with the exception of the yellow tipping in the black.

To me, a zebra should have more concentrated stripes...

Re: Please Identify Carpet Python

I would agree w Ziggy...and you are correct about the seller mis-labeling them.

Pic 1 labeled as "zebra-jag" looks like a normal carpet python (unless you have documentation of "pure" JCP blood) it's likely a jungle/coastal mix of some sort. Not really seeing a lot of zebra? If you can get pics of the sire/dam to confirm zebra genetics, that would help.

Pic 2 labeled as "jungle" is a jaguar morph (a coastal carpet python pattern aberrancy). Again, with the jag in pic 2, there is probably some mixture of JCP/CCP down the line.

Regardless, beautiful snakes! Both look like they have some really nice yellows.
