ALL of the ads for albino alterna are not only crosses, but very obvious crosses. I have seen one alterna that seems to be the best chance of being a true albino. It was collected on Juno Rd. south of Bakers. Several personel from the SA zoo have looked at it and agree it is alterna. Also, a grad student at Texas A & M did Mdna on it and it showed to be alterna with no ruthveni in it. In addition, the three years of offspring produced pure alterna phase and it is my understanding a cross will not do that. I'm not saying it is really a pure alterna, but consider this.....alterna are one of the most commonly bred snakes in the hobby and if it is possible for a leucistic to pop out why not an albino? Also, it is a fact that annulata and alterna cross in the wild. I know Troy Hibbits has had dna run on a dead specimen and it was found to have an annulata as a father but the snake looked pure alterna and was wild caught from the story I heard. Of course Troy could verify this too if you ask him. Just sayin' it is possible!
