    Not that I know of, but I'm sure that it's only a matter of time. Maybe someone will come out with one that's an albino super blackhead, that would kind of resemble yellowhead albinos, but I don't believe there is one right now.

    If you google search albino pictures you'll see a lot of albino's have yellow heads

    there is a yellow head albino based on the book publish by David G. Barker and Tracy M. Barker (Ball Pythons-The History, Natural History, Care and Breeding). All I want to know if it is genetic or just a beautiful albino

    It's very possible that it does exist, and I just don't know about it Sorry I can't offer very much insight on it.

    Animals that would normally have light brown on their body will have yellow, in an albino. Black areas will be white.

    As a result, using darker colored snakes for outcrossing will result in whiter, lighter albinos.

    AFAIK "yellow head" is a bloodline of albino that originated at VPI.

    http://www.vpi.com/2008/04/07/04_07_08

    ... I was told that my male descends from that bloodline, though oddly enough he doesn't have a yellow head.



    My guess would be that it's genetic in the sense that if you select for albinos with yellow heads, you'll continue to get albinos with yellow heads, but if you mix in other bloodlines (as probably happened with my guy), you start to get more "normal" looking albinos. (Ie, it's a trait that has to be line bred/selected for, not a single-gene trait.)
