To me, it sounds like people just line bred different albinism strains and called it their own? it almost seems like people just wanted credit for a morph without actually discovering a morph instead just line breeding it. Personally, if they are compatible to the point that I can produce all homozygote animals from the breeding then they would be the same gene except for in some rare instances such as taffino ball pythons and whatnot or as Kevin McCurley calls it "Acts Like Super" I'd like to do more work to see what genes originated where and which genes are completely different. Has anyone tried to do this with them? because Al has a huge list of strains but it seems like he included line bred traits as well as double homozygote snakes as a different strain which doesn't make sense to me but maybe that's just me? I can understand why there is so much debate about this.
