Albinos can be identified by their lack of melanin or black pigment. Here at The Urban Gecko we are working with all three known strains of albino, which are the Tremper, the Rainwater (aka Las Vegas strain) and the Bell.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.  The Rainwater Albinos usually have grey eyes and display lighter body colors.  The Bell strain, which is the most recently discovered of the three strains is unique in that they usually have light pink colored eyes and bodies that typically have soft brown spots and lavender coloration.
