Albinos can be identified by their lack of melanin or black pigment. There are three known strains of albino, which are the Tremper albino, the Rainwater albino (aka Las Vegas strain), and the Bell albino. Each strain has distinguishing factors that help to visually differentiate each other. The Tremper Albino is the most common and was the first to be discovered (1996) and can have body coloration ranging from darker browns to soft yellows. As adults, they have silver eyes with red veins.
Tremper Albino also knew as Texas Strain Albinos were the first of the three strains of Albinos to be discovered in 1996 by Ron Tremper. Tremper Albinos can range in colors from dark browns to light yellows, oranges, and pinks. The Tremper Albino eyes tend to be a silver color with red veins.
Tremper Albino was the first strain of Leopard Gecko Albinos discovered. They are very common and usually the first strain to be worked with when crossing into other morphs. For example, Ron Tremper has developed the R.A.P.T.O.R. with the Tremper strain. He has now made the Diablo Blancos and is working on Super R.A.P.T.O.R.’s (Super Snow RAPTORs).
