About

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. [1]

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.
