This ball python (Python regius) has leucism, a genetic condition caused by a recessive allele. Leucism causes all pigments in the body to be reduced. This differs from albinism because in albinos, only melanin production is inhibited. Photograph by Jonny Peace.

This is a Bumblebee Ball Python morph that the owner says that after several sheds, lost all its color. Everyone hopes it's genetic.
