Albino Portuguese fire salamander?

This is a discussion on Albino Portuguese fire salamander? within the Fire Salamanders (Salamandra) forums, part of the Species, Genus & Family Discussions category; Hopefully some of these metamorphs will stay pale colored as they mature. I think I might have some albinos....

Fire Salamanders (Salamandra) The first salamanders described, this diverse genus of species and subspecies can be found throughout Europe and the Near-East. They are the animals that first come to mind when most people hear the word "salamander".

It doesn't have pink eyes. I take the liberal stance on albinos. I go by the lacking pigment definition. Not all albinos have to be white with pink eyes.

I expect to soon have a bunch of exceptional fire salamanders available that I will only be able to ship in Pennsylvania.
