Vpi Albino is a recessive mutation.
In 1996, two unusual Albino boas were serendipitously born in the collection of Becky Hutchins of Texas. These animal and their siblings were acquired by VPI soon after they were born. 
Some individuals also show a wash of pink in the background color, primarily to the sides of the face & body, these are referred to as ‘pink panthers’. 
VPI Albino boas have dark-red eyes.
VPI Albinos have a pale background color with reduced black pigmentation. Saddle marking are much lighter. They have more color than the Kahl and Sharp Albino boas. Areas of black pattern are replaced with a medium purple-gray.
The tail follows the same patterning and coloration as the rest of the body.
