I would say there are lots of morphs we have seen and just havent bred. Ball pythons , if two look alike they get bred.
Boa mentality has leaned more towards, if it is heavily freckled, etc its not good for producing clean snakes....what happens when two highly freckled similar animals are bred? Could they produce something crazy? Thats what Ball pythons have been doing....someone has two high yellows, they breed them. They have granite looking things,they breed them together. Boa breeding is more about selectively breeding certain traits into existing traits.....I dont know if I am making sense, but get it? Lol.
Ex. Someone gets a real clean, pink baby female boa from colombia.....they breed it to hypos. They dont breed the freckled one with the other freckled ones....see waht I am saying?
A good example is the aztec boa....the one line is proven, but I could swear no one wanted farmed babies that looked identical..they all went to pet stores....
