Beautiful frog! Not very many frogs look nice albinistc, but those are an exception. But then again, look at the normal ones...

Albino...ish? lol, I don't know too many people that would argue against it being an albino About time you finally had one... how old is it?

Speaking of which, what ever happened to all those others that morphed a year or so ago?

These are about 6 months old.

Not sure what you mean about all the others... these are the only two tincs like this that I have morphed. Sold the pair that produced these.

Maybe your thinking of the "albinoish" auratus? Those I think I have like 8 adults now.

It was more a general question not directed at you... I know a couple people with frogs from your bloodline produced albinos... Quality Captives as well as at least one other. Haven't seen pics of them since they were froglets. They should be adults now...

Well... since albinism has to do with an inability to produce melanin, I'd have to say its not an albino. Leucistic might be a better description, but I'm not 100% sure that would apply in an animal lacking the normal cyanophores. How about hypocyanophoric? That's hard enough to say to fit right in with the rest of the lingo around here. Interesting looking tho'

And where, may I ask, is the melanin on that frog?

Albinos is a slang term for hypomelanism to amelanism... and it doesn't mean the frog completely lacks melanin. It's really more along the lines of an animal not having all the melanin present in the typical phenotype. The most famous "albinos" lack all obvious melanin, including in the eyes, and have thick enough skin that you can't see if their insides lack it or not. Some people have taken the term to be even looser to mean any type of pigmentation issue, even with other pigments, but there are terms for lacking other pigments.

These frogs are definitely albino, lacking black pigmentation in the skin. The purple coloration isn't melanin but more likely iridiphores or even pigment of internal organs and the like that can be seen thru the skin. I don't believe the eyes are normal colored either... the xanthophores look just fine, and iridiphores are tricky on a frog that doesn't show them much... the weird bit about the albino PDFs that I've seen, not just the inferalanis, is the lack of pattern in the legs at all, likely due to how they develop. On an inferalanis this would be where you'd normally see the iridiphores lol, but I think I see a spot of blue near the end of the urostyle...

And melanin is more than just black coloration. Depending on species it can produce brown, gray, and yellow. I'm not sure if that's the case with frogs however.

Brown and grey yes, but the yellow markings you're seeing are xanthophores, which produce the majority of the flat yellow, orange, and red coloration. Frogs have three types of pigmentation cells... melanophores (black, brown), xanthophores (yellow to red) and iridiphores (typically blue and white, but technically can produce any color, has an iridescent/metallicness). In the inferalanis, the black body coloration is melanophores, which when lacking, leaves you this interesting pinkish albino.

I'm going to have to retract the above statement. I skipped the alanis in the heading and only saw the tinc. I was looking for blue and not black as the base color. Having reviewed what the post is actually about, I can only apologize to the families that have been torn apart by my statements.

She was selling actual Hets (brothers and sisters looked like the frog in the above picture).

That could go on the quote thread.

It was my understanding that the frogs like the picture shown above were quite hardy and there wasn't a noticable difference in survivability.
