Question Albino + ? = Something else?!

What could I breed my albino ball python to, to get something other than normals and albinos?

Unless you are planning long term then all you will get from breeding a straight forward albino to any other morph will be either a normal het albino and het whatever else, or whatever else het albino.

To express the albino gene visually you need two sets of the gene. So to pair the albino with anything other than a snake carrying albi o genes will give you offspring that will only carry the albino gene, not express it. Of course, if you are looking at a long term project to produce something different then think about what you ultimately want to produce, then start reading up on breeding and genetics to ensure that you get the right genes to put together.

Ball pythons have a lot of dominant and codominant mutant genes. Only one parent must have such a gene to produce babies that show the morph. Such genes include pinstripe, pastel, cinnamon, mojave, yellowbelly, and many others.

I agree with ian14 that you should read up on breeding and genetics.
