Black Pewter Lesser Yellow Belly

This is a black pewter lesser platinum yellow belly ball python that we produced here at ECRB in 2010.  It is the product of breeding the Silver Surfer to a Pastel Ivory.  Because the Silver Surfer is a hypo this animal is also 100% het ghost.  The first set of pictures were taken shortly after hatching.   She was very silver and black when she hatched.

And here are photos of the same animal at about 600 grams.  As I have come to expect from the Yellow Belly gene, the yellow’s of the animal continue to intensify as she ages.  She is fantastic.
