Default Why my white albino & GFP leucistic gave birth to wild babies?

I was stunningly surprise by the last batch of babies from my only 2 axolotl
the white color albino and the GFP leucistic , they're both in Melanoid family but Some how manage to gave birth to a bunch of wild color axolotl babies. Earlier this year they already gave birth to just leucistic before they did this last batch ,What just happen????? What went wrong?? It's just seems so impossible for the two to produce a batch of wild with gold ring around the eyes , dark olive tone skin and lightly shimmery gold). I don't get it. Please help .

Genetics is a complicated subject!
If the whole of the last batch were leucistic and the whole of this batch are wilds then it's possible that your male is a mosaic - it's the most logical conclusion.
If you know what the grandparents were we may be able to figure it all out.
