Default Dusky Salamander Color Morph

While herping in Southern Ohio I came across this guy along with two other normal colored Duskies, but this one caught my attention in particular. Has anyone heard of a dusky with this sort of colouration. I'm hoping that in the next few years they might gift me with some eggs. I'm curious to see if the mutation will pass on.

I saw pics of duskies like that, and my friend once posted a pic of a fuscus with pink coloration mixed with natural-dark patches.

Leucistic. Plain and simple. Its not the same as albino, but its pretty rare in the wild.
