Luck? I dont know about that. Over 20 years of collecting and doing callouts, most of which spent full time, and his first albino.
Id say its more hard work and perseverance.

More pics Byron?

Thanks Rob and sa aqua! To (mis)quote Gary Player: The harder I work, the luckier I get.
It takes years of breeding, learning and teaching and building contacts to create luck ;) More pics will follow soon. The interest and comments have been astounding!
Those who have made no mistakes have learned nothing and can teach nothing.
The same is true of those who continue to make the same mistakes.

Yeah kinda puts paid to the whole "albinos are doomed in the wild" argument.

Congrats Byron! When i saw this on FB i nearly fell over. Its a big event and the snake is very attractive with its red lip.
