Bullet; White Acid creates a banded patterning on the ketucari's coat similar to the patterning found on the cinnamon, fire ball, spotnose, and yellow belly ball pythons pictured HERE (use CTRL+F to find them). You can Google these morphs to find more examples.
Bullet; White In your ketucari's genotype, acid is denoted by the letters "LcLc" (homozygous). The heterozygous (nLc) version
of acid is called lace.
Bullet; White Since acid is a homozygous marking, it will pass lace (nLc) 75% of the time when crossed with a non-lace or heterozygous lace parent. Crossing an acid parent with a lace parent has a better chance of producing another acid, but it is not guaranteed.

Acid must be a darker color of your chosen base, with a minor deviation in hue. It can also be a fully desaturated color of the base, as long as it is darker. Acid may be pure black.

These colors would be acceptable for this base color. They are either a darker version of the base, or a darker and desaturated version of the base. The last color on the right shows a minor deviation in hue, and is slightly more yellow than the base itself. Notice that this small change is not overbearing.

These colors would be unacceptable for acid. They are either lighter than the base coat or have too drastic a hue shift.

Since acid can appear anywhere on the body, there is no minimum range diagram for it. It must cover enough of the body that it is immediately recognizable.

Acid vs. Lace

The image below shows the difference in width between acid and lacing patterning. The acid bands below are at maximum thickness.

Interaction with Other Markings

Bullet; White All markings can be layered under or over acid.
Bullet; White Acid can be influenced by inferno, vapor, and segment.
Bullet; White When paired with webbing, you may layer the markings on top of each other as normal, OR have the
webbing + acid combination may simply turn the acid into a lighter shade of the base coat, with no actual webbing visible. If using this option, the acid may not be white.

Here are some small accents you can add to your designs to make them more unique!

Bullet; White Acid may have a subtle, light halo around the stripes:

Bullet; White Acid may have a subtle gradient that fades into the base coat, like below.
