This little guy was seen at the NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher. There were misters all around, spraying water droplets in the air, giving him a foggy, slightly eerie appearance.

Hello Lorna Glase...this surely is one of the most interesting entries I have seen in a long time. An albino alligator!!! What a beauty....

Hello Lorna,
A very interesting image of this Albino Alligator. I remember seeing one similar to yours while at the Tulsa Aquarium last summer. They are a real treat to see first hand, and I would imagine quite a rarity in the wild.
You couldn't have asked for a better pose since you can see all his bodily features clearly, as he is sprawled out on the log. A real beauty and something I'm sure you were thrilled to view while visiting Fort Fisher.
Being all white seems to have made the exposure just a tad bright, especially on his back and facial area. This also could be the result of all the water mist in the air. Hope you don't mind but I did a WS to see what I could come up with.

Hi Lorna

This is an amazing oppertunity. Did you take this behind glass? I understand the spraying but it looks a bit soft. Also it is almost over-exposed. You could fix that. Thanks for the interesting post!
