of hypomelanism is the reduction of black melanin, not
the complete lack of it. It has been my experience that if
what would be black is there, but muted (blue,grey or purplish.)
Then that animal is usually is a T positive albino. I have seen this in many species of milk snakes, king snake, boas, and bull snakes. I'm not a geneticist but I have a friend that is and a better friend that could've and should've been because he understands genetics better than anyone I know. If that is the case then the Trumbower hypo isn't a hypo at all. Examples

I have not fond the Trumbower female in the first photo to have red pupils yet. Just my humble opinion...
