Those are Leucistic Alligator Snappers. Not albinos but still really cool. You can tell if the turtle is albino by no color pigment and red eyes.

Mostly the albino turtles we see today occur with the ones bred by the thousands like Red-Eared Sliders. I'm surprised that we don't see more albino False or Mississippi Maps because they're bred a lot too. It's possible, and there probably is one out there.

Here's an albino Common Snapper

RES are bred in the hundreds of thousands annually, there are plenty of species out there than aren't nearly as commonly bred that have albinos. It only needs to pop out once and a breeding project started.

There are not albinos of every living species. The possibility exists, yes, but there are thousands of fauna species which have no reported albinos in their populations.

i was looking around on another turtle site and saw a link on alligator snapping turtles in japan, a guy takes in unwanted ally snappers on on his website it shows a albino alligator snapper and the description describes it as a albino but i don't know if it is a true albino or a hypo the picture isn't the best, here is a link showing it and a picture of it, maybe somebody knows more about it.

I do not know of any documented cases of albinism in the Alligator Snapping Turtle.

Xavier said it the best that "it only takes one to pop up and the breeding project begins".

Any color mutations in this turtle, such as those offered by John Richards, are forms of hypomelanistic turtles, commonly called pastels in the trade.

That Ally Snapper from Japan Is a Leucistic ally snapper. Jon Richards aka turtle man sells similar leucistic snappers, I dont believe there are any albino ally snappers.
