I have a question regarding the genetic recessive trait for albinism in Kenyan Sand Boas. Based on the photos that I've seen of albino Kenyans, there appears to be a least two distinctly different looking albino phenotypes. I would describe the first as having bright yellow color with nearly fluorescent looking orange markings. The second has saddles that I would describe as a light lavender or purplish color with orange or peach colored markings. Are these animals genetically compatible? In other words, if you paired Type 1 with Type 2, would you get albino offspring?

I've read that albinism in rosy boas is not necessarily compatible. For example, if you breed an albino Whitewater rosy boa and a Limburg albino rosy boa, you will not produce albino offspring. Just wondering how it works with Kenyans. Thanks.
