Hello,

A friend of mine recently had an albino ratsnake turned over to him by the owners. We were discussing what species it might be and I wanted to get thoughts/opinions from other ratsnake people here. I know that ratsnakes are hard to place into current species designations of the common NA species based on pictures alone but I thought it couldn't hurt to try. We think it is either a Texas rat or Black rat but even that is possibly wrong. The more I look at the pics the more I see black rat in it based on the colors and girth but I'm not sure as there are not a ton of pictures of albino Texas rat adults out there.

Anyway, what do you guys think?

Thanks,

Kyle
