that's very interesting. that's how i understood it also. now one of these guys who's posting up albino pyros gave me this story below. i passed on the purchase cuz' i couldn't verify it with randy limburg. maybe he can come on the forum and explain this e-mail he sent to me below when i was inquiring about them.

"To the best of my knowledge they are pure pyro, and it matters a lot to me. Here's what I can tell you. I got my breeders from Ric Blair, who, until he stopped breeding a few years back, was one of the most reputable sources of locality specific and pure animals where it mattered, like Thayeri, Gray-bands, Mtn. Kings, and Rosy boas. I actually questioned Ric about it, not because at the time I was worried about them being pure, but because I was interested in the locality.

He told me that they were in fact pure pyro, and the albinos came directly from animals collected by Randy Limburg in the Santa Rita Mtns. What I don't know is, if Randy collected an actual albino, or if he had an animal that was a gene carrier. If you know who Randy Limburg is, I don't think it gets much more reputable."
