At least they don't appear to be by the pictures...and I know it is hard to take a picture and represent what the snake really looks like.

First of all they aren't Lavender Albinos - that is TWO discriptions for TWO different snakes. You can have either an Albino or you can have a Lavender...but not a Lavender Albino; unless that snake is displaying both Albino and Lavender at the same time..then that term would be correct.

Lavenders have a DARK red/blue eye and Albinos have red eyes.

Here is a pic of 2 babies, an obvious Lavender and an obvious Albino. As babies they are EASY to distinguish..but as adults the body color can wash out and some old Lavenders will look just like Albinos..EXCEPT their eye color will give them away.

So you have what appears to be Albinos.
