    The first is a Mack snow and the second is an albino. What morphs are the parents? Ideally if someone is going to breed, they will know the genetics of the parents and will be able to figure out the genetics of the hatchlings. I hope you'll be able to figure out, based on the parents, why the 2 hatchlings came out the way they did. That would be the beginning of learning about this.

    Do you know what morphs the parents are (i know it's harder to see when they are grown. But if you have an idea please let me know. Thank you!

    Only the picture of the orange one showed up. The orange one looks like a super hypo (no body spots) tangerine. In order for you to produce a mack snow, one of the parents must be a Mack snow. In order to produce an albino, each parent has to have at least 1 gene for albino. If you're not familiar with the terms below, it would be a good idea to do some research: dominant, recessive, co-dominant, homozygous, heterozygous.

    Below is a link to an article about basic genetics that may be helpful:
