What morph is this Sumatran python?
3 Attachment(s)
Hi! I just picked up this baby Sumatran python at an expo almost 2 weeks ago, he is doing well and has already eaten a meal! I was told he was an orange-headed, but they also had him labeled as a "baby Sumatran blood python".... so I do not 100% trust that he is an orange-headed. I was wondering is anyone knew whether or not he looks like an orange-headed or a chrome-headed? Also I have had snakes mostly balls for 5 years or so, but this is my first Sumatran, so any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!:)

Re: What morph is this Sumatran python?
This is a borneo short tail python.

Sumatran's (Or chrome heads) are the black ones. This won't turn black.

I am unsure if it's a specific morph of the borneo as I'm not up on them. However, it looks really nice and calm! You want a calm one and I would keep this if I had it!

EDIT: They are closely related to each other but they are not the same species anymore. They were split up some years ago into 3 separate species.
