Its anerythristic not "anatheristic" by the way.

Very cool.

Congrats Martin!

The snow in the middle of the picture look a bit different. Lighter than the rest.

Bianca yes now you can. You just have to get the right ingredients and then follow the recipe. If you make a mistake the result might be a flop.

@ Wesley:

The snows look different depending on wether theya are Tyrosinase +ve or -ve.

Tyrosinase - An enzyme required to synthesize the black pigment melanin.

Tyrosinase-negative - An albino/snow whose cells lack tyrosinase, an enzyme necessary for melanin production.

Tyrosinase-positive - An albino/snow animal which is capable of synthesizing tyrosinase, but not melanin. This indicates that there is another mutation in the melanin pathway, causing no melanin to be formed.

They real beauties!!!

So what you are saying is there are "normal" albinos as well as caramel albinos in the market?

To be honest, I have only seent he one type of albino.

I thought maybe the colour difference might be due to shedding or lack thereof.
