Help with royal python morph id

Hi all First post Just wondering if anyone could help me ID my royal python morphs. Had them a while and am considering breeding in the future and seem to have misplaced the notebook that had the morphs written in. I will add pictures when I figure out how thanks in advance.

Sorry for double post ha issues uploading images through browser

Need better pictures of each snake taken under the same decent lighting, and ideally full body and not coiled. Two images under different lighting can make things look yellow or brown.

Based on the images provided, the bottom is a bog standard normal, top could be mojave.

Some morphs are easy to spot but some others are just like normals but with subtle differences that need decent lighting to bring them out, and then sometimes on their own can't be distinguished against a normal, which in itself will have lots of variation.

I have a female normal that is very light, but compared to images of Flame morphs could be mistaken for a flame.

If you can take two pictures of each snake under the same set up, or have them both in the same shot then that may help

The top snake is a lesser. The bottom one is a normal.

Yup, agree. Although the new images are warm, you can now see the fading and greener linge of the Lesser.

To the OP,

If these are definitely a pair and you breed them, then the offspring will be either normals or lessers.

Thanks for the reply
Yeah I'm struggling with lighting.
Am I right in thinking the cooler or whiter the light the more accurate the colour of the snakes?
They came to me a while ago as a pair but I've not bred them yet.
I vaguely remember the seller saying that the female had produced BELs in the past but at the time I didn't really have an interest in breeding them so didn't push for more info
Only other male I have at the moment is a spider but I've heard there can be complications with head wobble etc so wanted I to avoid pairing him until I've had some experience with hatchlings.
Thanks for all the advice

Agree also now. Looked like a nice yellow tint on belly before but now can see them more clearly.
