    Yes, it's an albino. No way to tell what strain.

    I could guess Tremper because it's the most common. I could guess Bell because it's on the dark side for coloring (but so are many Trempers). So my guessing will not get you anywhere.

    This definitely looks like a bell albino. Not a regular one, I think it has a bit of tremper too, which shouldn't happen. Looks very healthy though, good luck.

    A gecko could be het for both Bell and Tremper and I suppose a gecko could actually have 2 Bell genes and 2 Tremper genes which would make it both Bell and Tremper, though I think this is unusual. I do think it's a little inaccurate to say that a gecko has "a bit of Tremper" because although a gecko can have "a bit" of a polygenetic trait (like "a bit of striping", for example), with dominant and recessive traits, they either demonstrate it or they don't and there's no question of "a bit". I have actually produced Trempers that dark. They're often called chocolate trempers.

    Yeah, but what is a chance of getting a "chocolate tremper" as your first gecko by more or less blindly picking a gecko. I don't think it's unusual to have a mix of two albinos, I actually think it's the most frequent outcome of such a breeding practice.

    My guess is a snow tremper, probably had a low incubation temp which causes albinos to be darker / more browned out.. as far as crossed albinos being not unusual or a frequent outcome i seriously doubt that unless you mean people who are purposely doing it? i doubt the big box breeders would even bother and for us smaller guys we know better as its highly frowned upon to mix strains of albino.
