The clown is a beautiful recessive morph that is both a color as well as a pattern mutation. They have a bizarre head pattern, a full irregular dorsal stripe and lightly colored sides that vary from a reduced pattern to totally patternless. Clowns are also distinguished by the fact that their color actually lightens as they as age.
Clowns were proven genetic in 1999 by VPI.Even though
they`ve been around for a few years now, clowns are more
popular and in demand than ever before. I feel that
this is due to the fact that clowns are such a great
mutation to mix with other morphs. In 2005 we saw the
pastel clown and the albino clown, both of these
spectacular snakes were produced by Brian Barczyk. When
it comes to "designer clowns", we are just beginning to
scratch the surface. I look forward to producing lots
of clowns and then mixing them with just about everything!
