The tiny reptile, which has a rather unique pigmentation, is not the only albino alligator at the park.
Albinism, which occurs due to a congenital absence of pigmentation, causes a distinct white or pink coloration that is quite rare in the animal kingdom.

To see a whole family of white animals is particularly unusual, which is why this latest arrival at Wild Florida Airboats and Gator Park in Kenansville, Florida is so special.

The tiny white alligator, which appears to be healthy, hatched out to parents which are themselves albino and this is the third alligator hatchling in three years afflicted with the condition.
The park prides itself on being the only one in the world to successfully breed albino alligators.

Some more photographs of the new arrival can be viewed below.

Awww....that little baby croc is really cute and so rare too. I remember long ago I went to the Come Zoo in St. Paul (that's in Minnesota) and I recall that they had a albino crocodile too.
