This might be of a little help.

Axanthic/Anerythristic......lacking red, orange, and yellow pigments.

Amelanistic Lavender Albino........Lacking melanin with lavender skin tone where black or dark pigment would normally be. Usually referred to as T+ albino.

Amelanistic........Lacking melanin with white where black or dark pigment would normally be. T-albino.

Hypomelanistic.........Reduced amount of melanin.

Hyper-xanthic/erythristic........Increased amout of yellow, orange, or red.

Hyper-melanistic..........Increased amount of melanin, making a light colored animal very dark or black.

I'm sure I'm probably forgetting something. I hope this helps though.

Here's a pic of a snow brooksi. (axanthic/lavender amel)


:I am the proud new owner of a 4 mt old female Brooksi. She was billed as a “flame” but after talking with Steve Osborne it looks like she is hypomelansitc as “flames” are normal but high orange with orange bellies. The price I paid for her was in the range that people are asking for on the net for hypomelanstics, so at least the seller was honest with the price.

:Keeping track of the new “flavors” can be a time consuming task and what makes a king hypomelansitc or Axanthic is not easy information to find. I have been looking on the internet for info on what makes the different morphs and I have only found information regarding the differences in coloration, cost, etc. but nothing on what pigment is lacking/increased. Does anybody out there know where I can find this information.
