Issues

Photophobia

While the word photophobia literally translates to a "fear of light”. Its not actually that you are scared of light, but instead, are incredibly sensitive to it. Animals with albinism experience photophobia due to the lack of pigment in the iris, which does not allow the eyes to filter out light.

History

Sharon produced the very first one of these babies back in 1986.
Sharon kept this one pretty baby and later bred it as an adult.
This female had a few more, “light phase” babies. [1]

Paradigm Boa

The Paradigm Boa is a genetic anomaly first produced by Mike Weitzman in 2004. They are a product of breeding a BW Caramel to a Sharp Strain Albino. It seems by crossing the BW Caramel and Sharp Albino genes interrupt the production of melanin or black pigment to such an extent to generate the unique look of a “T-Positive” Albino. [3]
