UV Exposure & Richness of coloration... Is there a relationship?
Chondro: UNO, 2015 USCBB Aru Green Tree Python
Hatched: July 13th, 2015
Lighting: Reptisun 5.0 16W
Distance from perch: 6-12"
Same camera, lighting, and conditions for all pictures. None have been edited in any way. Richness of coloratrion in pictures is pretty accurate, he glows in the enclosure/lighting and in the open room light as well. The sibling even more so with the same exposure although due to the heavier markings on that one I thought this was better suited for comparison.
Picture 1. 10/21/15 2 Days Exposure (none what so ever prior to this)
Picture 2. 11/24/15
Picture 3. 12/10/15
Picture 4. 1/28/15
What do you guys think... Typical color progression prior to OCC? Do you agree there is very noteable richening/deepening of the yellow? Would you in any way attribute this to lighting, something else, or natural progression?
