I was going through some photos and couldn’t help but be inspired to see how the striping has progressed in carpet Pythons over the years.
Striping in Carpet Pythons is dependent on multiple alleles, in comparison with two alleles for most of the reproducible carpet python mutations. The more alleles for striping the python has, the more striped it is. Selective breeding is the key to making really striped pythons.
A heritable recessive striping has been discovered in Morelia bredli from reptile collections in the USA, this mutation is however not available to Australians at present.
