Hypo Alligator Snapping Turtle????

The textbook definition of Hypomelanism is lacking or experiencing a reduction in black and brown pigment. This would mean an increase in yellow and white pigment. I have attached a pic of my adult female alligator snapping turtle. I am taking offers on her until the end of the month. She is 18 inch scl and 40-45lbs. Trades considered for ball morphs/100% hets with paperwork. Turtleman2354@aol.com

In some ways your turtle looks like the adult version of the red-hypo babies breeders often sell for $60 each. In another way, it just looks like a normal colored adult covered with algae.

could you post a better pic from this one you have it looks like a normal alli snap,what characteristics does it have that make you think its hypo?

i would agree w/ ringneck, looks like a regular alligator snapper to me? the pic is kinda bad though, just looks covered in algae.

Thats a beautiful turtle, but Ive seen several alligator snappers in that color. Its a slight natural deviation. I wouldnt consider it hypomelanistic. :eatpointe
