    Savannah Monitors Shedding...Is This Normal?

    Hi everyone, just wanted to know what you guy think of the colour of my savannah monitor. I've always noticed something was off with his colour but after mike did some intensive research we have seen that our little guy has some treats that lean towards him being "albino"

    His tongue is now more so purple then blue
    His eyes are red to red orange depending on the lighting
    His nails are very very clear/pale no hint of dark browns or blacks at all
    When he sheds his skin under neath is very very light... It almost looks like he is an off white with dark stripes (has only shredded a part of his tail so far.

    When he is about shed his colour is a darkish grey- brown which I think is a normal savannah monitor colour.

    I'll get pictures of his colour up very soon.... The big question is though: if he is part albino or albino would it affect his health in anyway?

    Hi, I`m guessing his colour is perfectly normal (I`m only guessing because there`s no photos to judge by yet).... ;)

    He's not albino. Not by a long shot. Perfectly normal coloring.
