Marquee Exhibit

Albino Alligator

List of Exhibits

See a rare “great white of the wetlands” – an 8-foot albino alligator – in a special exhibit open now through Labor Day!

Albino alligators are very rare because, when young in the wild, they’re more obvious to predators. Plus, white alligators can’t bask in the sun like normal alligators – a necessary behavior for cold-blooded reptiles – because they’re susceptible to sunburns. (The Aquarium’s visiting albino alligator will enjoy a special shaded enclosure out on the riverfront courtyard.)

The exhibit will be free with Aquarium admission.
