Event description:

See a rare “great white of the wetlands”—an 8-foot albino alligator—in a special exhibit. Albino alligators are white because they lack the pigment called melanin that normally gives color to the skin, hair, and eyes. Aside from being creamy white, they look and act like a regular gator. 

Albino alligators are very rare because, when young in the wild, they’re more obvious to predators. Plus, white alligators can’t bask in the sun like normal alligators—a necessary behavior for cold-blooded reptiles—because they’re susceptible to sunburns. The aquarium’s visiting albino alligator will enjoy a special shaded enclosure out on the riverfront courtyard.
