Default Simple boa genetics help

I have never bred bos but looking to get into it and for my first animals i want a albino and a het albino.

But the question is a lot of people are selling hypo het albino boas and i wondered if this will give any different offspring when bred to the albino than the normal het?

thanks

hypo is the route to sunglows - so basically a hypo albino is a sunglow. a hypo het albino is also known a double het sunglow - breed a hypo het albino to a albino and sunglows are possible.

What are the odds of getting a sunglow?

Also what would the outcome be if i bred a hypo het albino to a normal het albino?

thanks

hypo het albino x albino


25% normal het albino
25% hypo het albino
25% albino
25% sunglow




hypo het albino x het albino



37.5% normal 66% poss het albino
37.5% hypo 66% poss het albino
12.5% albino
12.5% sunglow
