Amazing Albino Alligators & Other Animals

Truly fascinating. I'd never seen anything like it. While visiting the Georgia Aquarium, I was surprised to see Albino Alligators! Two of them! I had to take pictures (below).

But before we get to that - albinism is defined as the "congenital absence of any pigmentation or coloration in a person, animal or plant, resulting in white hair and pink eyes in mammals."  Albinos typically have red or pink eyes because the lack of pigmentation in the irises allows blood vessels to be visible.

But you're really here for the pics, right? You should be - albinism is a beautiful phenomenon about nature!

First up are my pics of the albino alligators at the Georgia Aquarium.

And here are some amazing pics of other albino animals - enjoy!
