Some of the white American Alligators are actually leucistic as evidenced by their colored eyes. They are simply white animals instead of lacking pigment like albinos.

All known Albino alligators come from one wild pair in Louisiana. The eggs are collected under Louisiana law and any albinos are kept along with a percentage of the regular colored offspring.

All of the albino American alligators are kept inside in a darkened environment and give supplemental vitamin D because without melanin to protect from sunshine, they can die from sun basking which is a typical reptile habit.

Most American alligators are protected from sunburn by their olive-black skin. Albino alligators aren’t. Their survival rate is estimated to be 24 hours in the wild because of UV radiation sensitivity and inability to hide from hungry critters. These gators hatched safely in captivity from eggs collected by a commercial operation in Louisiana.
