Has anyone tried combining microscale and scaleless yet?

Has anyone tried combining microscale and scaleless yet?

I know the two morphs originated from different places (scaleless being a hybrid gene and microscale popping up randomly in a pure line), so I don't know if they're related genes, but you do sometimes see missing scales on the head of a microscale. So I'm wondering if anyone has done breeding trials with the two morphs to see how they relate to each other?

Olivia, what is an even more obvious feature is the shape of the scales on both.

Interesting. So do you think they're related?

Ball Pythons

Not that similar mutations are always parallel in function and expression, but have you read about the relationship between Scale-less and Micro-Scale Ball Pythons? It begs breeding trials in corns, eh?

I haven't. Where could I read about that? I only have a bit of knowledge about ball python morphs. I knew they had a scaleless morph (with no belly scales or egg tooth, unlike our corns), but I wasn't aware they had a microscale morph too.

Just query your browser, MICRO SCALE BALL PYTHON. There is at least one video on the subject. Here's a pic of two siblings; one MicroScale and one Scaled. The Scaled one is showing signs of an impending shed.

Here's the rest of their bodies.
