Default Any health issues with albinos?

One of the breeders in our area has a litter of albino hedgehogs that are being sold for less than the normal going price.

Is this just because of appearance (I happen to think they are rather cute), or are there any health issues that perhaps albinos are more prone to?

It's usually because of appearance. Many people don't like the red eyes on albinos. There is no difference in health or temperament from albino to non-albino hedgehogs.
