    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and all but that's one of the ugliest morphs I've ever seen.

    I think not all paradox's are created equal, I quite like some but others not so much.

    I wouldn't part with my hard earned for one. Like I said though, it's very subjective.

    Here's an older photo of mine. There are some better updated photos of this guy in issue 29 of Scales & Tails.

    They are low in numbers compared to albinos but breeding trails are suggesting 1 in 16. It is being reproduced so paradox isn't really a correct name for them.

    Sometimes I think I got one too, but then it turns out she just peed on the news paper and rubbed some ink all over herself

    I really like the paradox albinos, and I think its because of the contrasting colours. Black and white, with the yellow.... I think its stunning :)

    Not my thing, reminds me of when I used to get black spot in my pool! But I agree with andynic07, probably some are better than others and I`m sure they`ll become a very sought after addition to many peoples collections.

    I agree, I think it looks grubby, but from all the replies it seems to be rather popular.

    It reminds me of what some people say the definition of 'cute' is: ugly but interesting.

    Each to their own :)

    the breeder still owns the project no one wanted to pay the 25k asking price, there is more then one in NT that is that heavily marked. They are still relatively rare with only around 40 produced so far.

    Each to their own, absolutely! I understand how some people wouldn't like something like this...

    But I have never seen anything more spectacular!
