The Albino morph is a recessive mutation and is the most common morph. An Albino has a lack of melanin. The lack of melanin makes it that the snake has less brown-black pigmentation and that snake gets a red, orange or yellow color. You can recognize an Albino with its red eyes. 
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.
No history yet.
Albino Western Hognose have red eyes.
The body of the Albino Western Hognose expresses a lack of melanin, resulting in the dark pigmentation being lost and leaving a yellow, orange, or red snake.
The tail follows the same coloration.
