I am assuming it's T+ albino. I originally called it hypo but as they have grown and changed somewhat it appears to be more T+ albino than a hypo. From what little I know, hypos such as the Hypo Honduran are born with the same light to dark purplish where the black should be but the purple turns black or almost black as they mature but these T+ are born also with lavendar but as they grow up they develop some black spots here or there but retain that lavendar color instead of it turning darker. They seem to fit the Barkers description of T+ instead of hypo. I haven't talked to the Barkers but got that from a description they had concerning their T+ Albino Boas. As far as where this came from it comes from the Holbrooki line I believe. There were maroon Holbrookis years ago that were albinos but instead of white and yellow they were a purple maroon and yellow. I bought 1.2 Holbrooki x Alterna hybrids years ago from Serpexotic in Cairo, NY. They must not have known they were het for anything. Years later the T+ popped out and they have since been bred to a few different hybrids. HDEAN
