I think it would still just be a black and white coontail. With the exception of adamanteus X horridus hybrids which have been known to occur naturally and are quite beautiful, most rattlesnake hybrids I have seen lose their unique characteristics and just become rather bland generic looking snakes. I especially see no point in crossbreeding snakes that do not occur together in the wild. As far as the albino scut X ruber, personally, I would hope that never happens. If a true albino ruber were to be found one day it would ruin the whole deal. Nobody would look twice at the albino rubers as they would never trust whether they were the real deal or one of the mutts from the scutulatus lineage. Just like with using albino ruthvens kingsnakes to crossbreed and create albino alternas, pyros etc. There supposedly is a true line of albino pyros out there now, but absolutely nobody trusts where any albino montane kingsnakes originated now due to the sullied lineages.
