    I have a green tree python female shes a little over a year old and she shed lastnight and now you can clearly see she is starting the mite phase. What does that actually mean? Is she gonna keep the black or turn calico or anything? She is probably 70% yellow 30% turning green and now she has the mite phase everywhere

    Does she actually have black speckling on her? Mite phase isn't something that 'starts'. It is not a 'phase' according to the typical definiton of the word. It is a genetic trait. A chondro is either a mite phase or it is not. If she has the black speckling coming in it will most likely stay that way for good. Mite phase and calico are two completely different things.

    I can't tell and I'm no expert but I would say calico. Mite the scales are usually all black not just part. Gorgoues animal and I would love to see more pix! I may be wrong but need better photos. Either way chondros are awesome!!!!!!!

    Looks like the normal color change they go through. Does not strike me as Mite phase or Calico. Who/Where did you get her from?

    I see what you're saying now. I don't know enough I guess to say but I think it needs more to be a true mite. Awesome colors coming in though, hope the black keeps coming in! Always thought they're gorgeous when it comes in and it stands out. Alot of chondros have some black scales but getting full pattterns is awesome! Good look and hope to see more updates. Where did she come from?
