They are! Usually things are too bright for him being albino so they are often slit-eyed like that. Pictures never do him justice.

Haha yes they are cute when babies. Thank you! He was a face striker when he was younger. I think its the recessive genes and albinism. these pics dont reflect his current size (he is a little over a year in these pics).. He is eating large rats now. I will post updated pics :)

I heard that the albinos were more likely to strike, since they are so sensitive to movement and lights.

That would certainly make sense. Funny. i notice this more with boas than rat snakes and pythons (I dont have large pythons though so im limited with that) I know in rats albinism makes their vision poor, so they sway their head to compensate and can be a little more jumpy.
