What is the difference between a Burmese Python and an albino Burmese Python?
A Burmese Python (Python bivittatus) has dark-brown and light-brown patterned scales and brown or hazel eyes.
An albino Burmese Python (Python bivittatus) is a yellow-white variegated python with pink eyes.
All albino animals are without pigmentation (colour) and have pink or pink-brown eyes.
An albino animal is not a different species of the same animal. Albinism is a lack of pigmentation.
