This past year has been crazy for all of us, but luckily the ball python market has held strong. Here I’ve listed the high-priced ball pythons of this year in this short-but-sweet list of the most expensive ball python morphs.

The Tri Stripe gene is a recessive gene that creates a 3 beautiful stripes running down the ball pythons dorsal. Combined with the Super form of Pastel and Desert Ghost and the bright colors really POP. These four genes create such a beautiful snake.

Carbon Fire Clown($15,000)
This morph runs upwards of $3,000 as of today as a single gene. It’s no wonder why this one made it to this list. Add the well-loved Clown gene and this snake has an insane pattern.
Bred by American Royals
2014 Skittles Paradox Albino Piebald Silver Streak Chimera($39,875.80)
Paradox snakes are my personal favorite. They are so rare that after over 100 eggs we’ve hatched here at Infinite Scales, we have yet to create a paradox snake. The chimera feature giving her different colored eyes is magical.
This makes it highly believable that this$39,000+ price tag is LEGIT.
