It can and has been done...wouldn't recommend it though for a couple of reasons the biggest of which is that the offspring tend to be ugly (IMO) little things...

In Leopard Geckos, there are three different strains of albino and none of them can be crossed into each other to create albinos I don't think. Someone correct me if I am wrong but if you cross a bell with a trempor or a rainwater, it won't prove out. Much like the T+ and T- albino gene found in some asian ratsnakes.

Something else, even if the two mutations were compatible, the odd behind actually hitting the albino would only be one in four. So it would take probably two or three clutches of eggs just to hit the albino. Might as well just buy a pair of albinos.

I agree with Peter...if you want albino's (or any other morph for that matter) you are best off just shelling out the green for an albino pair.
