Default Albino Red Eyed tree frog?

I picked up an albino retf at the san diego convention, but everything i have seen on albinos, they tend to have orangy-redish eyes. This one has silver eyes, could it possibly be a xanthic?

As far as I know Albino RETFs can have either more red or whiteish like yours.
The xanthic will have the silverish-white with no pink or red. (kind of like the color of a P. tomopterna's eyes...kind of)

There isn't a whole lot of people breeding these...who was the vendor?

The eyes should color up more as it grows. An easy way to tell the difference is to shine a flashlight at the eyes, the pupils of albinos will reflect red and xanthics will be black.

Probably LLL, they usually have albinos at the shows.

I have three of them...and love the Nike blue stripes and legginess of them as they climb...hopefully at least one will be a female....have not identified them with a flashlight yet...was glad to read the info. Thanks, Judy S P.S. I bought them identified as Lutinos...what kind of differences would there be???
