I'm not sure if that snake is hypo but I agree it's exceptional.

To me hypo is when the parts that would normally be black are changed to a grayish, brownish, coffee or carmel color. If it's just got really thin black I just consider it to be reduced black, not a true morph.

Your snake has thin black but it looks like it might also have the black turning a lighter color. It's hard to tell because the black is so thin. The orange also looks really pale and that's also often a characteristic of true hypos that have orange or red in their pattern. I think it might be a true hypo but I'm not sure. The test IMO would be to breed it and if any of the babies come out with wider black borders that are of a lighter color than normal then it's a hypo.
