There are 2 types of hypo for boa constrictors:

Hypomelanistic: absence of black pigmentation. Commonly called Salmons, Hypos, Orange Phase. Super Salmon etc.

Anerythristic: absence of red pigmentation. Don't know their common names.

I have read somewhere that hoggs are naturally hypomelanistic.
