According to National Geographic, the Albino Burmese Python is native to southeastern and southern Asia. They are found in subtropical and tropical areas. They are usually often near water or in trees.

Burmese Pythons are usually dark colored snakes with many brown and black spots down the back. The Albino variation is considered a color mutation. The albinos are white with patterns in orange and yellow.
