    And the last link that asplundii postes is pretty much identical to what mine has. Thanks for the time in getting those pics guys.

    A bit strange you've never seem them before calm, perhaps it could be the ages of the snakes you have and could certainly be only affecting newer snakes. Who knows! But again this has put my mind at ease. Bless you giys for the advice and help
    I have a 2017 Albino so it just must be a certain Gene. I don't really look at all different genes of snakes and not many people have any around me..

    It is not a the result of some other gene, all Albinos have this trait because all ball pythons have it. When Bob used to have the pics of the original Albino on his site you could see it in the pics of that animal.

    If you look at the eye of any ball you will see that the top half is always a shade or two or three (or more) lighter than the bottom half because there is a pigment differential where the eye stripe passes through it. It is a bit more marked in Albinos because of the sharp contrast of their red eyes.

    Yeah, the size can vary but it will always be there in some form or other.

    You can see the white on the nose travels down then through the eye. My snakes have these markings too. Odyn has dark brown in the bottom and cream at the top of the eye. It's pretty cool. Most snake eyes will carry the markings in their eyes.
