THE URBAN GECKO

caramel albino

The Caramel Albino is a T Positive Albino - the more common albinos are T Negative Albinos. The T represents tyrosinase, an enzyme required in the synthesis of melanin (dark pigment). T Positive Albinos have functional tyrosinase enzymes required to synthesize melanin, but they lack a subsequent enzyme required to complete the melanin-synthesis process. Simply put, the T Positive Albinos exhibit darker pigment, giving the animal a very unusual, exotic appearance. This recessive mutation is one of our favorite morphs and we are fortunate to have it represented by three individual bloodlines within our collection.
