World of Ball Python description:

Axanthic - While albinism is the lack of all melanin or pigment color, Axanthics only lack red or yellow or both. Axanthics are a recessive mutation that produces a snake that is varying shades of grey, black and brown. Although most “brown out” as an adult, there are some lines that hold their color more than others. Axanthics are a color mutation only and thus will have the varying patterns as a normal ball python.

Id say she was het for VPI.

Like the description says, the pigment would eliminate the chance for it being a visual axanthic. It may be a het.

On an adult it can be hard to tell because sometimes they brown out a lot, belly pics would help.
