    White Alligator

    See a very rare “great white of the wetlands,” an 8-foot white alligator!
    It may be the rarest live animal you’ll ever see. Of some 5 million or so American alligators thought to be alive, only 44 are white and The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk has one for the summer.
    This “Cajun curiosity,” hatched in Louisiana and raised in Florida, will be on display from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day. The exhibit is free with Aquarium admission.
    Previous visits of a white alligator in 2005 and 2008 were extremely popular with Aquarium visitors.
    The alligator to be exhibited isn’t an albino, it’s leucistic. (Albinism and leucism are similar in that both have a genetic cause that results in little or no skin color.  Leucistic animals can have normal eye color, while albino animals will have red eyes.)
    Aside from being creamy white, the alligator looks and acts like a regular gator.
    White alligators are rare because, when young in the wild, they cannot hide from predators. Also, alligators are cold-blooded reptiles that rely upon the warmth of their surroundings for energy. Unfortunately, white alligators can’t bask in the sun because they’re susceptible to sunburns. (The Aquarium’s visiting white alligator will enjoy a special shaded, heated enclosure.)
