    Wild Albino?

    Other than Blondie has anyone heard of another wild Albino carpet being found? I was speaking to an old Landscaper up here in Darwin about snakes and he said years ago a fellow he worked with had found an albino python on a job and had it for quite a while. I can't confirm if this story is true or not but it got me thinking.

    Apparently there was another albino darwin caught that was/is supposedly a different line that the blondie one.Think it is called white phoenix or something like that.My guess is that the line is very closely related to the blondie one.

    Wasnt there 2 separate albino darwins found? blondie and White Phoenix.
    Ive also hearded about the albino diamond from pretty trust worthy sources.
    Also unconfirmed report of an albino diamond spotted by a farmer a few years back.

    According to SR, there's 2 Darwin lines, Blondie & Phoenix

    Darwin carpet python - Morelia spilota variegata - Our Snakes - Snake Ranch
    Day after day, day after day, we stuck, ne breath, ne motion. As idle as a painted ship, upon a painted ocean. Water, water everywhere, and all the boards did shrink. Water, water everywhere, ne any drop to drink.

    It is interesting and I am sure there would have to be others out there. I was not aware of the Phoenix line.

    No i don't. I could even be wrong about it being w/c now that i think of it. But it was an NT animal.

    Nope, my memory served me right.

    The fact that Spliff was male was mentioned in Monitor, the journal of the VHS. Spliff's photo was on the cover of Monitor , Vol. 5 No.2 Dec. 1993 Caption: Olive python (Liasis olivaceus) found at Woodcutters Mine, 80 km south of Darwin, Nth. Territory. "The male specimen measures approx. 1.5 metres TBL and is presumed to be just under 2 years of age. Photograph by Gavin Bedford."

    Gordo- I like it like that

    i got a mate who found an albino corn in his bird cage in blacktown, they were wondering what was happening to their finches. Doubt it was wild though.

    I wonder what the chance of an albino occuring in the wild is....boy it would be some slim odds for sure.......prob would have a much better chance of winning the lottery but it does happen.....I am sure there would have been old farmers or the like out there who would have seen an albino something and never given it a second thought....... amazing world
