    Is this a normal?

    This snake is listed as a normal het albino, but I've never seen a normal quite like this. The pattern is very interesting. Do you guys think he's really just a normal, or something else?

    Re: Is this a normal?

    Looks like a really reduced normal to me. The variance within normals is pretty amazing, you have some reduced (banded) ones like that, and then you have the extremely high patterned ones, and everything you could ever imagine in between.

    Again, super low pattern normal het albino. Bound to make some awesome reduced albinos though!

    Hi,

    He has quite a nice reduced looking pattern. If you have a project in mind where a normal male fits in and you want to reduce the pattern then $50 seems a fair price to me.

    If you have any female albinos or het albinos and fancy taking a gamble then he could be ok for that too.

    Just remember the quarantine.

    What a cool-looking normal! I agree, he would make some cool albinos!

    He's pretty neat, nice reduced pattern. I would bank on him being normal just to play it safe. It's quite possible that the owner was told he was a pos het and didn't realize there is a big difference between het and poss het.

    Het or not, I'd buy him!! I'm a sucker for a nice reduced pattern, whether it's genetic or not, they're just great to look at! I'll buy one some day If I lived near you, I might just go get that one

    If I had the space for him, I'd totally buy him, just because he looks awesome.
