That is the albino "version" that I prefer the white/yellow doesn't look that nice. It is really interesting that 3 types of albinos were produced in one clutch by the same male. Do you plan on breeding him/her?

We have two. The other retic is just as pretty, and we are most definitely going to breed them.

Wow, you're right man...

I've never even seen an albino before...

Always thought they'd look a lot different though, but never the less, still an awesome snake !

Very nice. I would like to get some with the purplish background color. It makes the yellow stand out alot. Still stunning.

Nasicornis, this one is a purple. The picture just doesn't show it off that well.
A picture certainly does it no justice.

Are they locally produced or imported? I did not know there were any in SA. Definately one of personal favourites! The snakes, not the sleeping bags.

Great baby tic bru!!!
Those purple albino's are truly something special! (Just a pity how they wash out in a photo).
Glad to see them making it into the country (hopefully you are in SA?).
They will def be on my shopping list, keep the pics coming, and spill the beans. Where do they come from?
Cheers

Dendroaspis you have to tell us where you got those!!! I am also a retic fan and would love to have even just a male albino. They are soooo cool! Thanks for sharing

These are imports.
They are making their way here, but it isn't a cheap snake.

WoW thats great stuff. The one in the pic looks like a lavender albino but I guess it's the pic. They are really beautiful. They are expensive but have you seen the super dwarf purple albinos? They can go for $8500. Thats one hell of an investment.

Good luck with the import hope the cites papers go through quickly to save on shipping charges.
