South Carolina Aquarium Albino Alligator

The South Carolina Aquarium in Charleston has added an albino alligator. The Aquarium says the albino alligator is very sensitive to sunlight. They also say albino alligators only have about a 24-hour survival rate in the wild. Albino alligators cannot blend it with their surroundings, which makes hunting very difficult. The rare alligator is said to be one of just fifty in the world. Take a look:
