Ball pythons have piercing dark eyes that often carry the same colored patterns as their bodies, with tiny stripes or lines running through them.

Regular ball pythons are black or dark brown, with light brown or gold sides. The belly is white or cream. But the banana ball python is a light orange-yellow color with a purple coloration.

What colour are pythons?

Burmese pythons’ typical coloration is brown, tan, and black, but the albino variation lacks those color pigments, and the snake is white with a yellow pattern. In the wild, albino snakes rarely survive because both predators and prey can spot them more easily, but they are striking to look at in zoos.
