Two Lubinos (top) vs. Blue Eyed Albino (bottom).
Although both mutations are of course albino, the lubinos have the hybino gene in them as well.
You can barely tell the difference of the two but if you look close you'll notice a slight skin color difference. The Lubinos are white skinned and skin of the albino is not a pure white. Also, if you look closely at the skin of the albino you'll notice a tiny bit of pattern on the front of its face while the lubinos are completely patternless other than their highlighter orange ear.
Let's not forget the eyes, they do both have solid red pupils but their iris' are different. Although both of their iris' are surrounded by a blue ring and full of blue hues, the iris' of the lubinos have much more of a sparkle to them, almost a green. It literally looks like a glitter filled eye in person.
Albinos have been around forever but when you start mixing the right genes into them you can really make them amazing.
The hybino mutation mixed into the albino bloodline is what is solely responsible for all of these great qualities that the normal albinos do not have.
I'll post pics of some normal albinos whenever I take some good ones to show their characteristics in comparison.
