Looks unreal. Love to see it for myself. But why are they more prevalent in that particular area?

I think they said he was Arizona's first White Alligator exhibit, not that they're native there.

"Only a handful of white alligators exist in the world and are usually found throughout the Southeastern United States".

Probably because, as far as alligator population goes, that's the place where there's the most contact between humans and alligators.

No...being albino is a naturally occuring anomaly. The fact that most albino alligators have been found in that area doesn't mean that human pollution is increasing their numbers, it just means there's a greater number of humans to stumble on them. It doesn't actually mean there are more albino alligators there than there are anywhere else.

"Only a handful of white alligators exist in the world and are usually found throughout the Southeastern United States". The Philadelphia zoo has had one for years. Don't know its whereabouts now though.

I don't find this all that interesting, there are tons of albino animals ( the number of albino reptiles are staggering alone).
