Appearance

Head

White Albinos have clear or red eyes. their gills appear pink because they are clear, and the blood flow is visible. [2]

As they grow, the iridophores on their gills become a deeper red and the rest of the body stays pure white. [3]

Body

An White axolotl looks almost exactly like a Lucy.

This Axolotl will not develop any type of freckles or other pigmentation on the body. However, the tips of the finger will become dark and appear as if the axolotl has dirty fingertips when the Albino Axolotl is on its way to sexual maturity. [4]

Belly

Young white albinos may even be almost see-through, especially on their belly. [5]

Proven Lines

No known proven lines.

Related Traits

White albinos and axanthic albinos look almost identical (they both look very light or white), but white albinos are considered to be a/a and d/d while axanthic albinos must be ax/ax, so any dark pigment will be blocked by the albinism and there won’t be any yellow pigment since they are homozygous for the recessive ‘ax’ that blocks xanthophores.
