Identity help anyone?
last night I purchased a Fire female, or did I?
Since the transaction was made at night, the interior lights of my vehicle did not provide the best lighting. When I opened her bin this morning in a very well lit room, she did not look so much like a fire anymore
Long story shot, she is definitely a female, but is she a Fire? The pairing that produced this girl was a Fire x Vanilla. She's for sure not a normal, the belly is super clean...So this means she's either a Fire or a Vanilla.
I purchased her off a very cool and trust worthy dude, who has been doing this for years. Already confronted him and everything is cool, he agreed to do a refund if I am not happy with her. Everybody makes mistakes, no harm no foul
So is everyone could please have a look at the pics and can help me figure out whether she is a Vanilla or Fire, it would be much appreciated. :yes:

I know nothing about either morph, but what I do know is that normals can also have "super clean" bellies.If you have to ask; "Is this a normal?" The answer is ALWAYS yes.

I would say she is a fire. Looks very similar to one of the fires posted on world of ball pythons.

She doesn't look fire to me, both of mine fade/lighten up torwards the top of there backs and are over all lighter in colour. Maybe vanilla? I have no experience with the vanilla geneChris Dwyer Exotics

To me she screams fire... Classic head marking and vibrant oranges .... Joys of fires they get better with age. Fire to me imo

Sorry Jon..... not experienced enough to say one way or another.... but she's very nice
Here's my male fire if it helps.

I dont work with vanilla's or fires but I have normals with clear bellies and the same head marking as you point out on this animal.
So I would not rely on these identifiers for ths morph.

Looks exactly like my old ball python, which was a Normal.
He had a pure white belly too.

I've been working with the fire gene for sometime now and she looks like a fire female i picked up to add to the army. Started looking much like a normal, but after a couple months, she definitely lightened up. If possible give her some time to do that. It's a subtle morph that get better as she ages.

Thank you to everyone who gave their opinions! All the input is much appreciated
I will post an update picture after she sheds at least another 2x.
Once again, thank you for the help everyone
