Also, is the blue one a proven genetic morph? There were a bunch of Blue Diamond Iguanas around some years ago, turned out they all had their lovely colours from some special food, flamingo style
All Tom Crutchfields Iguanas Live Out Side Even the albino Morphs he has stated many of times that the sun doesnt affect there skin. The only thing the sun does affect is there eyes when young but once there over so many months old there fine. but like all albino animals they just dont see very well in bright ligh. The only problem these iguanas would have is not being able to surivive out in the wild. as green iguanas are green for camouflage but a yellow albino would stand out like a sore thumb
The Blue/Axanthic are a morph, There Blue/Axanthic as there missing the yellow pigment which would be need within a normal green iguana to make it green. Axanthic Iguanas are bred with albino iguanas producing Het Babies which then are bred together to produce the pink eyed snow iguana!
