Pumpkins are very popular this time of year, for obvious reason. Halloween is right around the corner and of course, we associate the pumpkin with fall/autumn.
Even this piebald ball python has got the pumpkin look going on. I hate snakes so much, but this is very mesmerizing.

This didn’t happen by chance or just normal gene selection, but years of selective breeding is necessary to get the perfect blend of pumpkin. This type of snake is the best for people who for some reason want a snake as a pet.
It is, however, relatively rare for this pattern to be seen in a python. Typically, you’d find this in dogs, birds and horses.
