    The pure ones which are available to the general public are Spotteds, Olives and North-West (Darwin) carpets. As far as I know. Others exist (alledgedly, but wont be available for years)
    and also, those true albinos can be crossed so basically any australian python could be available as an albino BUT those 3 I mentioned are the only true ones. That is what I am led to believe anyway. Please someone correct me if I am wrong?

    Must be school holidays...


    Theres heaps of species of albino's getting around in private collections,

    E.g. Darwin python, olive python, black headed python, spotted python, scrub python, red belly black snakes, smaller eyed snakes, death adders, knob tail geckos, bearded dragons, some turtles and some frogs

    Just off the top of my head

    I would think a majority of those would be hoaxes? Especially the RBB.

    Or any Elapid for that matter.

    Actually there are a number of forms of albinism, they include luecism, amelism, hypomelanism and T+/T-.

    I wasn't calling you a lier. I was just surprised is all so no need to get defensive.

    Albino scrub would be interesting.

    Was that albino RBB originally bred in captivity and escaped then went on to bite the kid or was it 100% from the wild? Does anyone know if I suffered from Neuro problems?

    The evidence suggests the answer is almost certainly yes.

    The albino red belly is nice but it's got nothing on the original red belly IMO.
    and yeah apparently it was collected after biting a school child or something but don't quote me on it.
