Hey all,

I've been trying to experiment a little with so few albinos that I call 'caramel' for lack of a better description but they are compatible with the 'normal' albino gene. Their true color is a bit difficult to capture in photos.

Here is a male I produced in 2009:



Here is the sire to the above snake:






I recently paired the original light colored albino (adult directly above) with a (small) female snow to see if she would drop similar looking albinos.


2011 offspring:



Sample sizes are small (n=4 albinos) but all 4 have the 'caramel' look to them.

I have the 2009 'caramel' male with a similar colored female that I expect to drop soon. Will post photos if/when she drops.

Cheers,
-Chris
