Leucistic axolotls have white skin with a pink tone. They typically have red or pink gills and dark eyes. They are one of the more common morphs produced in captivity.
Leucism is caused by a mutation that results in reduced production of melanocytes in the skin.
Leucistics can be further classified into two different types--"Dirty" or "Clean". "Dirty" means the specimen can have a freckling pattern on the face. "Clean" specimens do not have this freckling. The freckles can come or go with age and may vary in intensity.
Sometimes, Lucys can have a variation in their gills called "blue gilled". This is when the gills darken and have an interior blue branch- like pattern to them. Our breeder, "Hoover", is a good example of a blue gilled Lucy. This trait usually doesn't present itself until the axolotl is older. It is less common that a regular gilled Lucy.
