Nope, nothing different for albinos. It's just a colour. Some may be more light sensitive but I've found that really depends on the hedgehog as some dark eyed ones are really light sensitive.

In some species, albinos are less healthy than standard colours but that doesn't hold true for hedgehogs. I too love albinos. I find those red eyes are like windows to their soul.

Most important is to get the heating arranged. Have you made certain your father is on board with running either a space heater, ceramic heat emitter, or heating pad what could be year round and when nobody is home. If heès not, then a hedgehog is not going to work out.
