Hi forum...
I miss having time to come here.
Anyways, some of you may remember a while back my female albino had a litter of which about 70% died in the first 8 months. Out of the 14 born, 4 survived (2 hets, 2 albinos) and those have been doing good for well over a year now. The hets are living as pets and I still hold the albinos. Check out this color difference..

This female has very very light pale coloration, she has almost no color except a very pale pink in the tail saddles but that's it. The saddles look clear. She was super pale when born and I did not expect her to live, had a huge belly when born and was a very slow starter. This is about 3 months ago right after eating:


here is a pic with flash taken last month:


You can see she still seems to always have a fat belly, but she sheds, eats, defecates normally. It sound weird but her skin seems diff. than all the other boas, almost looser and softer.. it's hard to explain, but it seems very fragile.
Took this pic at same time as one above, taken without flash...


Now, compare her with her brother who was born with lots of color...pic taken last month about 2 days after a shed.


Here is a pic taken with the flash:


Here is one taken without the flash, I love this pic..

This pic is the closest I have gotten to showing his real color, most pics make him look very pink which he is, but there is an orange tinge which I can usually never capture.

Quite a difference!

This is the mom (pic taken in 2001 when I first got her) I wonder what the babies will turn out like, I am hoping the colorful male will retain a lot of the reds/pinks and oranges.


thanks for looking, have a great one!
Time for me to work..
-April
