The Jaguar Carpet is a truly spectacular animal to see in person. The trait is extremely variable and each year they're produced, a new type seems to surface .Although the Jaguar trait is genetic, it defies conventional inheritance in that multiple phenotypes may be produced from the same strain. The Coastal Hypo Jaguar is extremely variable in both color and pattern.
The Jaguar is largely responsible for the huge rise in popularity of carpet pythons.
Unlike some pythons that hide all day, carpets love to display themselves basking or draped on a branch.
