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

Wild caught adult male visual acquired by Outback reptiles. Was in rough shape and took them several years to recuperate and acclimate to captivity before they could produce the first litters of hets. Visual Albinos first produced by them in 2014.[2]
