Axanthic - Classic Black and White
So today I feel like talking about the Axanthic morph of the ball python. Now, why did I say black & white in the title? Axanthic means the opposite albinism. So in other words, an axanthic python is missing it's red and/or yellow pigments, and usually has just black, white, and brown pigments. This morph is only a morph of colour, so it's pattern follows the same pattern as the normal ball python. Though most axanthics "brown-out" later on in life, the best lineages can maintain their colours for a good while.
