White albinos are pure white with red gill filaments, pink or white eyes, and golden flecks on the gill stalks. Young white albinos may even be almost see-through, especially on their belly. As they grow, the iridophores on their gills become a deeper red and the rest of the body stays pure white.

This species has a lack xanthophores and melanophores. They do have iridophores, but these cells are confined solely to the gills.

White albinos are very similar to leucistic axolotls, but they do not have pigment in their eyes. Because of this, white albinos are more sensitive to light and generally have poorer vision than other types of axolotl.
