Post Reticulated Python Morph and Localities Guide

Co-Dominant - Mutation is visible in a normal (heterozygous) and super (homozygous dominant) form.
Dominant – Mutation is visible and identical in heterozygous or homozygous dominant form.
Recessive – Mutation is visible in homozygous recessive form. Some mutations have visual ‘hets’ for recessive mutations.
Reticulated Pythons
Mainland- The largest group of retics, can reach 18+ feet.
Dwarf- Middle group, reach 10-16 feet.
Super Dwarf- Smallest group, max at around 8 feet.

Morphs
Recessive Morphs
Clark Albino/Clark Strain 2- T- albino strain (Lacks melanin so cannot produce tyrosinase) Available in 3 Color phases:
White

Purple

Lavender (White X Purple)


Amel/Clark Strain 1- T- albino strain (Lacks melanin so cannot produce tyrosinase) extremely white and commonly have paradoxing


Blonde/Caramel- T+ albino strain (Has tyrosinase but produces less melanin pigments thus can produce reds, browns, and grays)


Pied- Low or high whites.


Orange Ghost Stripe- Contains a dorsal stripe and is high in orange.


Anthrax- Removes all pattern from the back, usually has a darkened eye, and extends the rossets into lines down the side

Has a visual het known as Graniteback


Genetic Striped- Removes all patterns except a single dorsal stripe which can be full, or broken.


Anery (Anerythristic)- No red pigmentation.


Titanium- Removes all pattern.

Has a semi-visual het known as Citron which works as a color enhancer with other morphs.

Sunfire- Color Enhancer with intense orange and gold, last ⅓ of body has “melting rosettes”.
Het/normal form

Super/homozygous dominant form


Tiger- Vertebral striping, yellowish coloration, extensions of white dots.
Het/normal form

Super/homozygous dominant form


Platinum/Ivory- Color enhancer that intensifies yellows and reduces pattern.

Wow this is great, thank you for taking the time to post up all this morph info on retics! I have to say Graniteback is one of my favorites.

Thanks this is pretty cool.

Now for the morphs can you do more of who originated which morph and which locale each one was sourced from, if it matters that is.
