that is a luestic glider... a albino glider has a whit one... in order to get one.. you need gliders that carry the gene for that trait or you buy one from a breeder...
you'll need a very deep pocket book for a white one... roflmao

Some breeders are selling albino and leucistic gliders.. pretty sure there are a couple available now. To get one, you either have to buy one or breed for one with hets. I don't believe there are any *known* health risks that run with the leucistic and albino genes, but there have been one or two instances of a white glider not making it through something the rest of thier colony did.

Albino gliders, white gliders with pink, red or burgandy eyes, like any other species does have a much higher risk of health issues as the albino gene is actually a defective gene. Basically, albinoism is a birth defect. They can have a much shorter life span and other potential health issues.

The leusistics, the white gliders with black eyes, are different though. Their color comes from a genetic mutation, not a genetic defect. They do not seem to have the potential for the health issues seen in albinos.

Judge not until you have walked in their shoes and lived their lives. What you see online is only part of the story.

sigh.........and alas he is sold. Pricilla has emailed me and Im now on a waiting list. If anyone knows of a leusistic, doesnt have to be albino and I guess actually after really thinking about this, It would be a better chioce to get a leusistic.

Also the boy monster got was not a lue or albino he is a platinum mosaic - different thing all together. I know of way more lues than mosaics. I think they are all beautiful and special but mosaics are by far my favorites after creminos which may as well be as real as a purple glider at this point (and cost as much as one too!)!
