Question Need help on types of iguanas

So I wanted to know if someone would be able to explain to me if there is a visual difference between a green iguana and a green iguana het Albino. Green iguana was just an example but does a het albino have an visual characteristics in case you buy it off someone and you don't trust that the iguana is het albino.

Thanks
Natalee

Maybe a mod can move this to the discussion forum.
To answer your question, heterozygous(het) for a recessive trait means the animal carries only one copy of a recessive gene. Two copies of a recessive gene are needed for the gene to express itself and be visually noticeable. When purchasing hets with the intention of breeding a visual in the future, make sure you are dealing with someone you can trust and can document the animal's genetics.

Thank you, I was just wondering because from my understanding, some ball pythons show some hint that they are..for example..het pied unless people just bs other people for more money. So I wanted to know if it was the same for iguanas also.
