Default Reticulated Python breeding outcomes?

I'm new to figuring out how all these different genes work so any help would be greatly appreciated. Can anyone tell me the outcome of breeding a lavender albino tiger to an albino super tiger that's het for snow? Thanks!

Wow. I figure that is a three gene pair problem. And I cannot give a definitive answer because there are two albino genes in retic pythons--white albino and purple albino. A lavender albino retic has a gene pair made up of a white albino gene and a purple albino gene. Without knowing whether that albino super tiger het snow is white albino, lavender albino or purple albino, all I can say is that all the babies would be some sort of albino. In addition, half the babies would be super tiger and half would be tiger. And some of the babies would be het axanthic. (Snow is a combination of albino and axanthic.) But only a breeding test would tell which are het axanthic.

That helps.

Expectation:
25% white albino super tiger
25% white albino tiger
25% lavender albino super tiger
25% lavender albino tiger
50% of the babies are expected to be het axanthic. But only a breeding test would tell which are het axanthic. And actual results could vary from the expected results simply from the luck of the draw.
