We were offered this very interesting ball python that we name the Igna in the summer of 2009. We purchased him immediately and had him imported directly from Benin. At first glance he appeared to be a combination of a Black Pastel and Granite but upon further inspection it was his unique charcoal coloured belly that really stood out for us. This guy has some unique qualities that lead us to believe that he will prove out genetically so we are hopeful to see something new from the Igna Ball. We will keep you posted on any developments from this exciting project.
