The easiest and simplest way to describe a Pastel is yellow! All pastels exhibit an increase in yellow background colour as well as a very deep black pattern.
The Albino created the Ball python market but the Pastel got the market going! The first Pastel was imported into Canada in early 1999. I imported 2 different bloodlines but ended up only working with 1 Bloodline the “Graziani” line. All lines of pastel are genetic and compatible. Some people have their
favourites but all lines are “nice”.
