Talking anyone know what sort?

hi all. just wondering if anyone knows what type of snake this is. the photo was taken in singapore. the guy who owned the snake was saying it was an american python. it supposedly cost him $80000 US to import into the country. either way it is a beautiful snake and i was proud to have the photo taken. great site guys by the way. happy herping. rodney.

Looks like an albino Burmese python to me. The market was flooded with them a few years ago. I sold my 7' female for $75. U.S. though they're worth more. I just don't have room.

Looks Like an Albino Burm from here, but the lack of any red color makes it look very nice too. Doesn't look like an 80000$ snake.
Snakes? I just like to teraform!

I saw a retic for 40 bucks in Florida... it was in a petstore and that whole place was so disgusting I could puke


PS - Love the pic! Albino burms are one of my favourites!!
Everytime that I look at myself I can't believe how awesome I am.
