Leucistic Rat Snake Question

Do leucistic rat snakes change color as they grow? Specifically I am wondering if they become pure white with age. Most of the baby leucistic rat snakes I have seen have a yellow or pinkish tone to them (sometimes both). I’m referring to eastern/westerns in particular. Either way I love this snake!

They start out pinkish as babies and become pure white as adults. I recommend getting ones that don’t have the bug-eyes as they have a higher chance of injury/rupturing. Easterns (in this case black rat snake lucies) are ones I recommend the most. Less angry as babies (usually) and easier to tame. They also seem to have bug-eyes less often.
