Ciao Ruggero, Benvenuto!

Your snakes look like T- Albino Boadon capensis.

Thanks, but I buy the male for a T- albino, so why they are so different in colour? Sorry for disturbing you.

Very beautiful snake you have there, I would also think capensis. House snakes vary greatly in colour and pattern, even from the same clutch. Your female is very pink, I have not seen one this pink before. The male's coloration is more common, but it could also be a t+ albino.

Would have to see clear close up pics of both snakes pupils to be sure. There can also be some variation in colour in different aged animals but T- albinos will have red pupils and T+ will have dark pupils.
