Marking A Snake During Pairing?

    Hi, I have two ball pythons I plan to breed and I have come to the sudden realization that they look basically identical. I looked for markings that could differentiate them but they really are just very very similar. They are lavender albino and very similar in size. So basically, I was wondering if there was a safe marker or such that I could use to mark the male during pairing. I know some use washable markers on some other animals but I wanted to double (and maybe even triple) check before doing it myself. Thank you for any help!

    Also a second question. Is it safe to breed albino to albino? I remember hearing somewhere it can cause problems and now I can't find any information on it. I asked a few breeders who said it's totally fine but I figured I'd ask again while I'm here to make sure. Can you tell I'm very cautious?

    You can put a dab of nail polish or a spot from a sharpie marker on the tail. But it will come off when the snake sheds.
