 Do morphs...

have genetic-linked disabilities-
Like certain breeds of dogs are associated with diseases...

I don’t ever hear much about that so if some one understands what i’m trying to say and knows, please reply. I’m curious.

I know in Ball Pythons there are a few. For example the Caramel Albinos are more pron to have spinal kinks than other morphs, Super Cinni’s have a bulbous nose look to them, The super Woma or Pearl is a fatal gene I don’t know of any that have lived.

Hope this helps

Yes that helps, but I didn’t need specifics.

Thank you.

Much of the reason for disability/fatal mutations in specific morphs also occurs from inbreeding, where if you introduce a gene of a fatal mutation, it will eventually spread around enough in the bloodline to produce offspring with the fatal mutation present.
