>>This is a wild caught male black rat found in a farming area in Maryland a few years ago. I raised up females specifically to breed with him and just got 10 good eggs. He looks like an albino but with normal color eyes. I'm anxious too see if I get visual hets.

to describe a bit more detail,

The snake has a ground color that is an off-white/marble and slight lavender tinge to the skin (kinda opalescent looking with the way the shades all blend). The blotches color seems to vary depending on the temperature and snake's mood ranging from pastel pink (mostly when in shed) to a dusty rose/red and coral orange. The tongue is a purplish-blue color. The eyes have a normal black pupil with the iris a normal brown with gold flecks and a blue outer rim.

We don't think it is an albino or hypo...photos we've found show either clear red eyes or just "slightly normal" eye color but with a dark ruby pupil. This snake is definitely all normal eye color and black pupil.
