Being see through probably helps a lot with sexing. You can see the hemipenes through the skin of the tail.

Is this different to the other albino kaouthia? What does Suphan mean is that a locality?

Do you have pictures of the leucistic male?
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

@BV

The "Suphan cobra" ("N. k. suphanensis") is a colour variety of N. kaouthia known from Central Thailand. All intermediates between "typical" Suphan cobras and "typical" N. kaouthia are known, and a molecular genetic study showed no differences bewteen these colour forms.

i just barrowd this text from Wolfgang Wüsters homepage. within the marked it just described the coloration of the snake.

take a glimpse here: http://biology.bangor.ac.uk/~bss166/Taxa/Naja_kaouthia.htm

both parents of the albino and the leuzistic male was normal colored "suphans" lets see what happen if i breed the two together in 2- 3 years.

i need to take a new picture from the male, i will post it here asap.
