They're both cool, completely separate morphs (breeding them together produces double hets).

The Limburg albinos are said to be from somewhere near temecula CA, making them coastal rosys. They have redish/orange eyes, and tend to get just slightly bigger than WW's, IMO.

The Whitewater albinos originated from Whitewater canyon, which is north west of Palm Springs CA. This is the area where the coastal and desert subspecies of rosy boa naturally meet, so the WhiteWater albinos are said to be naturally occurring integrades of the two (roseofusca X gracia). Their albinism does not affect the eyes the same way as the Limburgs'. Whitewater's eyes are greenish/gold... kind of hard to describe really. I'll try to add some pics if they let me.

Here's the two together.... Limburg is on top:

And a bunch of albino Whitewater eyes:

Hope that helps!
