Amazing: See what hatched at Florida zoo

Wild Florida via Facebook

Two rare albino alligator hatchlings recently hatched at a Florida zoo. The creatures are an unusual white and pink with pale-colored eyes and claws, making them look like something out of Disney’s crocodile family!

These American gators have around 200 other counterparts in the world too – so don’t be surprised when they start catching on fire or glowing green during night time walks through their wildlife habitat.

These little guys are going to be really popular with their bright white coloration and great personality.


But what causes a creature like this?

The hereditary mutation disrupts production of melanin, which determines things like skin, fur or eyesight – it can range from dull brown hues adopted by other animals such as raccoons for example; through glowing red CIA agents tracking down hidden weapons in James Bond movies…to complete lack thereof (leaving humans without any pigment)


We’re so proud of our albino alligator parents, Snowflake and Blizzard. They laid 18 eggs this summer but only two hatched! The hatchlings are now being monitored by the Croc Squad team for their next couple months before they go on display at Zoo Miami where people can marvel at these rare animals together with other members from critically endangered species like white rhinos or African elephants who need your help too!”


American alligators were once hunted to the precipice of extinction for their skin and meat, but protections have helped restore their population. Albino gators are at higher risk than others in wild populations because they glow white when illuminated by moonlight or sunlight (like a 6 inch glowing white lizard).


A popular misconception about these cold-blooded creatures is that it’s hard for them survive without water; however this isn’t true since American Alligator can go anywhere from 2 days without eating up until death eventually comes knocking on its door due too hunger issues caused by muscular deterioration.


Even in human care, albino alligators tend to live shorter lives fraught with more health complications than non-albinos. American alligators can make it into their 70s but the oldest living gator is an legend at just 25 years old because he lacks defense from UV light which causes him harm and has designed high shade habitat for minimal exposure while other animals are not so lucky!


Fossils show these creatures have existed since before recorded history; they were present around North America and Europe where populations dwindled over time. Fossil evidence suggests excessive hunting as well climate change

May have affected their survival.
