from Ron's site:

"Pastel ball pythons are color morphs that have yellow and sometimes orange colors throughout their bodies with a slightly purple hue as hatchlings. Pastel ball pythons tend to get brighter and brighter as they grow into adulthood. They can often be identified by a lightly faded head and are easily distinguishable when placed next to a normal looking ball python. The Pastel ball python is a very necessary ingredient for producing some truly amazing morphs when bred to other ball python morphs. A Spider ball python bred with a Pastel ball python for instance creates the highly sought after "Bumblebee". There are a myriad of morph combinations that can be achieved through and only through a Pastel ball python. Pastel ball pythons are co-dominate trait animals so they have a super version that is much lighter and intense in appearance. A Pastel-to-Pastel breeding will produce a super version of the Pastel known as the "Super Pastel". Statistically speaking, when a Pastel is bred to a normal ball python, half the clutch will be pastel and the other half above average looking normal ball pythons."

Hope that helps.

Our Kaa is a Pastel, and I can tell you that they are awesome looking BP's. Their green eyes are just something else.

I need to mention that adult morphs in general tend to not look as vibrant in coloration as their hatchling counterparts. Some pastels don't appear brighter as they grow and there are many examples of brownish pastels in existence today.
