White Alligators with Blue Eyes
February 27, 2012 3 Comments
Gatorland in Kissimmee, Florida, has the largest number of white alligators on display in the world! Their four leucistic alligators have a gene mutation that results in white skin and blue eyes. Only 14 are known to exist (much rarer than albinos). The white gators live inside, so they don’t get a sunburn. These stunning animals were found as babies in the swamps of Louisiana. Cajun folklore says that anyone who stares into their blue eyes will have good luck.
